Willard depends greatly on the involvement of parents in the academic careers of the students at the school. Parents are encouraged to be active members of our PTA. The organization raises funds for school activities; sponsors campus beautification projects; is involved in the organization of family nights; and assists in putting on parent education forums.
Parents also serve on the school’s Governance Committee recommending how categorical dollars and other monies should be allocated. Monthly coffees are held allowing parents to come together and discuss issues pertinent to the middle school child. Focus groups such as the Latino Family Club bring parents with similar backgrounds together to socialize and talk about how to assist their child in their academic success.
