The Willard Home and School Association (HSA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the lives of our students, parents and educators. We do this by providing resources and encouraging communication and involvement in our school and community at large. Our goal is to establish a close relationship between home and school by advancing the opportunity for all parents to be involved in their child’s elementary experience.
The HSA is also focused on enriching the learning environment of all Willard students. We source and fund a diverse offering of presentations, assemblies and workshops to enrich the already outstanding academic curriculum. Through selective fundraising, we are able to provide supplemental educational materials and experiences, support school and family social interaction, and provide a forum for sharing information on issues that impact our children.
The Willard HSA’s overarching goals are to:
Enrich Our Students
By providing assemblies that focus on anti-bullying, kindness, diversity, nature, science and various other important topics, as well as overseeing Science Fair, Book Fair, Author Visits, One School One Book, and other programs that enhance our studen’s time at Willard. The HSA also funds the various software and educational applications used both in-school and at home.
Recognize our Teachers
By organizing creative and thoughtful ways of saying Thank You to teachers, such as breakfasts, lunches, monthly raffles, and fun surprises throughout the year. We also help to fulfill teacher “wish-list” items supporting technology, classroom enhancements and specific in-class needs.
Strengthen our Willard Community
We sponsor fun and educational family events to strengthen the bond between our school, our families and our community through various events such as Movie Night, Bingo Night, Socials, and Panther Pride Week.
Through our Willard Cares initiative we are able to assist Willard families who might need temporary financial help. We also attempt to foster the importance of giving back to our community by holding drives for local organizations, Service Day, and our Social Services programs.
