Programs & Activities
Looking for a fun and easy way to support Willett?
Join the Hospitality Committee! We provide special lunches and conference week treats to our hardworking teachers and staff throughout the year. All communication is done through Sign Up Genius, so there are no meetings to attend. You just sign up when it fits your schedule and then drop your food or beverage items off in the office on the morning of the event. Hospitality is a great way to support our school and the staff really appreciates all the delicious treats! To join this wonderful group of volunteers or for any questions please contact the Willett PTA.
Assemblies are scheduled throughout the year for the students at Willett.
Keep an eye on the "Who's News" newsletter and this website for dates.
Battle of the Books
Battle-of-the-Books is a library program for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. Battles are held in the late spring.
Students form their own teams of four members each. All teams register in the library and must have teacher signatures. The librarian selects 8 titles that will be read by all teams. Titles are not announced until the program is activated. Battles are scheduled allowing 6-8 weeks for reading time. At the battles, questions from each book are asked. Teams decide on a group answer. The highest scoring four teams then meet other highest scoring teams from Patwin and Chavez elementary schools. These three schools exchange titles for a total of six books for Battle questioning.
Lindsay Manville is our Chorus Director. Permission slips are available in the school office. Chorus is for 3rd - 6th graders. Rehearsals are Monday and Wednesday mornings from 7:45 - 8:15, in the Willett MPR. Our Chorus meets before school and performs at Willett and various venues throughout Davis. Thank you to our PTA for sponsoring our chorus. Reach Ms. Manville at firstname.lastname@example.org
