Willard Middle School

Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood , Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel - all tied together by an original story of a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family, and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them. Shows will be performed April 9, 10, 11th at 7:00pm in WIllard Middle School Black Box Theatre. Tickets are $5 per person and are on sale now at Willard Middle School, or can be reserved by emailing with a name, number of tickets, and night you will be attending or by calling 742-2588 (ext.2619).  All seats are general admission and doors will open at 6:30 pm nightly.

The WMS Archery Team took 3rd place in the Southwest Missouri Tournament last weekend.  We had almost 400 archery students from across Southwest Missouri participate in the tournament.  Once again, Cara Driskell ranked high taking 3rd place in the Middle School Girls Division with a score of 271. We would like to thank the many volunteers that made this tournament happen, we could never have done it without them. 

This week we would like to recognize two people that go above and beyond for our school.   Becky Robinson and her husband, Andy, are definitely "Pride" worthy.  Becky and Andy are both custodians in our district, she is assigned to WMS, he is at WHS. These two are at their schools during their normal shifts as well as numerous other hours of the day helping out at many of our school events.   We can not thank these two individuals enough!!  Becky and Andy, THANK  YOU for all you do!!!

Thanks for checking in,

Amy Sims, WMS Principal
