The coming year promises to be an exciting one at Willis Foreman Elementary School. Our school's mission is to achieve academic excellence and promote students to exceed expectations every day. We value all of our students at Willis Foreman Elementary for their unique cultures, languages, abilities, talents and needs. Our fourth and fifth grade classes have grown this year almost to capacity. In 2010, Willis Foreman met full AYP criteria distinction. As a result, our staff is emphasizing reading and literacy skills in all subject areas. We're asking students to read aloud more in school and at home. We will continue to implement a comprehensive math program that stresses conceptual understanding, math reasoning, and computational skills.
Our staff welcomes parents and family members to volunteer in our classrooms, in our library, or on the playground during lunch. The children and staff would love to see you helping out at our school. We are always open to visitors and invite parent participation in all school activities. Willis Foreman Elementary is a fine learning community thanks to its dedicated staff, hard working students, and involved parents. Together we will continue to work toward our goal of creating motivated, successful students who will become respectful, contributing citizens of the future.
