Williwaw Elementary is a neighborhood school with about 350 students. We are a community center and our students come from a wide range of diverse backgrounds, experiences, expectations and cultures. We are in our third year of implementing Houghton Mifflin as our core reading curriculum. We are fortunate to have a reading specialist and a consultant to support our teachers in implementing our curriculum.
Our school helps students succeed through quality staff, parent involvement and community partnerships.
Parent Involvement Parents play a crucial role in establishing school goals and making sure their children do well in school. Principals are required to share their school achievement data with parents and they actively seek parents’ suggestions, comments and participation in setting annual school goals. For schools that did not make Adequate Yearly Progress, principals will also work with parents and staff to develop detailed school improvement plans. Contact your school’s principal for information on how parents can become involved in these activities. Community Volunteers Parents and other community members volunteered an average of 150 hours per week in the school.
Williwaw students are making significant gains and we will continue our commitment to providing a quality education for all students. Significant resources are invested in our staff’s development in the areas of effective teaching strategies and practices, particularly in literacy and math.
In order to provide the maximum opportunity for learning, dedicated time and energy have been devoted to mentoring students in all grades. Other programs such as the Artist in Residency program, Foster Grandparents, and “The Opportunity Room” all provide additional learning experiences for our students.
