Welcome to 2017–2018!

Dear Willard Parents,

On behalf of the Willard Parent Teacher Group (“PTG”), we welcome you and your family to the 2017-2018 school year.  We hope you had a wonderful summer and we’re looking forward to a fun-filled fall!  We also want to extend a warm welcome to Mr. Lucey, the new Willard School principal.

The Willard PTG is committed to enriching our children’s educational experience and to fostering a sense of pride and well-being among the Willard students, staff and the community at large.  We hope that you will take advantage of the programs and activities sponsored by the PTG throughout the year and we invite you to help with some of these efforts by volunteering your time and talents.  The elementary school years are wonderful years to connect with our children, their peers and teachers.  By being involved we show them that we support and value their efforts at school.

You will receive the Willard Weekly, our e-newsletter, on Thursday afternoons
 throughout the school year to keep you up to date on upcoming events before, 
during and after school.  To be added to this distribution please e-mail:  In between those announcements this website is a great resource or feel free to contact us directly.  We look forward to a great year!


Candace Root and Alex Rhumann, Co-Presidents Willard PTG 2017-2018,
