Welcome to Willis Road Elementary!
"As A Team, We Ensure the Success of Each Student."
Principally Speaking…..from Dr. Smith
Dear parents and students:
We continue to have a great year at WRES! The
faculty and staff are excited about the many
opportunities we have planned this year with your
children. It is important for you to communicate closely
with your child’s teacher. Teachers will utilize a variety
of ways to communicate with you. Please let them
know the most convenient and easiest way to
communicate with you concerning your child.
Thanks to all of you who participated in the 2016
PTO Run for FUNDS. The students did a fantastic job
running laps to help our PTO raise money! Thanks
you to all of you who volunteered to make the run a success!
Many parents often ask, “What is the most important
thing I can do at home to strengthen my child’s reading
skills?” According to The Parent Institute (2003), the most
important thing parents can do is to provide their child with
lots of opportunities to read. Let them know you value
reading. Ask them to tell you about what they are reading.
Look for ways to make reading a central part of family life.
Reading and writing go hand in hand, so encourage your
child to keep journals and write letters as well.
Please remember at Willis Road Elementary your
child’s education is our number one priority! It is important
for your child to be at school everyday. Instructional time
is interrupted when children are tardy and check out often.
Please work with us as we try to improve our attendance
this year. If you have any questions or concerns, please
don’t hesitate to contact us at 770-304-7995.

Remember, “It takes a pack, to raise a wolf”.
