Willson is a PreK-8 school that offers a unique, individualized learning experience and strives to create meaningful connections with the community. Here are some of the exciting things going on at Willson:
Willson PreK-8 School held a ribbon cutting on Tuesday – for a washer and dryer. The appliances will be used to clean and dry dirty uniforms, which are often cited as a reason why children miss school. Residents also can do laundry at Willson at certain times.
Asthma can be a massive drain on schools, causing children to miss class, lose energy and, in extreme cases, end up in the hospital. The illness can be deadly but it's also treatable, which is why University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital is stepping in to help at a CMSD school.
The Executive Grille at Jane Addams Business Careers Center will hold its annual Thanksgiving buffet from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 8 and Friday, Nov. 9.
The Edulog Parent Portal app, linked to GPS devices on District buses, can be used to track a bus going to and from schools in real time. It monitors only the District’s yellow buses, not RTA buses and other vehicles that transport students.
According to Sprint, 70 percent of U.S. teachers assign work that is to be completed online, but 5 million families lack reliable connectivity. To help, the wireless carrier is providing devices and Wi-Fi to students across the country whose families have little or no Internet access.
This is the third year for the awards, a partnership between the George Gund and Cleveland foundations, the District and the Cleveland Teachers Union. The goal is to spread best practices by honoring teachers who set a standard of excellence and serve as an example for their peers.
