Principal’s Message: David Johnstone  Go Honkers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 

Principal's Message

School Starts August 12, 2021 8 A.M. Full Live instruction (Masks are only required indoors on campus until we are notified with any updates).

Hello Honker Family Parents and Guardians,
 
I hope you were able to experience a sense of normalcy this summer and were able to find time to visit with family and friends. I am so excited to be starting this year off with sports, clubs and full, live instruction. We are ready to put the difficulties of last year behind us and are excited to move forward together by educating our youth and preparing our students for the future. The Willows Unified District has been working extremely hard in preparation for this year with updated curriculum, new staff and new services geared toward making our students successful. We are a family at Willows High School and I believe that it is our responsibility to educate all students and prepare them for college and/or career paths of their choosing. Ultimately, we aim for our students to become successful, responsible citizens in our community. 
 
I’m also very excited to be starting off this year with the addition of an advisory class into all of our students’ schedules. This advisory class was put in place to create a connection between students and an adult on campus, contribute to a positive school culture, help with interventions, and have a place for social-emotional learning opportunities. I believe that Willows High School will greatly benefit with this 30 minute course in place to be a catch-all for every student.
 
In keeping school safety at the forefront, we will continue to implement mitigation measures as our Superintendent determines are necessary to ensure that our staff and students’ safety is prioritized at all times.
 
This year we will renew our commitment to excellence in all that we do, as we seek to provide world class instruction daily with the expectation that all students can learn and succeed. We will continue to provide students with opportunities to address academic deficiencies, to build numeracy and literacy skills, to make up for missing credits, to be college or work-force prepared, and to have the opportunity to participate in advanced academic classes. We will continue to implement initiatives to promote teaching and learning, and to engage all our stakeholders in the process of educating our students. A major initiative for this year is to address the concern of student literacy and mathematics. We look forward to partnering with our stakeholders in this effort which will positively impact student performance in every content area, and in their overall academic growth. 
 
I am excited about all that this new school year has to offer and look forward to working collectively to ensure that our educational experience will produce critical thinkers, responsible citizens, and students who are prepared to be successful in their post-high school endeavours. The Willows High School family aims to be a world class institution of teaching and learning in our commitment to educational excellence.
 
Also, we have added two new counselors to our Honker family, Bibiana McNieil and Hunter Thompson. Bibiana McNeil will be working with all students with the last names that begin with A-L and Hunter Thompson will be working with all students whose last names begin with M-Z. 
 
Lastly, I look forward to building relationships with all stakeholders throughout this year and encourage you to become active members of our Boosters and the Honker family. It is going to be an amazing year.
 
Sincerely,
 
David R. Johnstone

Mensaje de la directora: ¡¡¡¡¡ David Johnstone Go Honkers !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

La escuela comienza el 12 de agosto de 2021 a las 8 a.

Hola, padres y tutores de Honker Family:
 
Espero que hayan podido experimentar una sensación de normalidad este verano y hayan podido encontrar tiempo para visitar a familiares y amigos. Estoy muy emocionado de comenzar este año con deportes, clubes e instrucción completa en vivo. Estamos listos para dejar atrás las dificultades del año pasado y estamos emocionados de avanzar juntos educando a nuestros jóvenes y preparando a nuestros estudiantes para el futuro. El Distrito Unificado de Willows ha estado trabajando muy duro en la preparación para este año con un plan de estudios actualizado, nuevo personal y nuevos servicios orientados a hacer que nuestros estudiantes tengan éxito. Somos una familia en Willows High School y creo que es nuestra responsabilidad educar a todos los estudiantes y prepararlos para la universidad y / o trayectorias profesionales de su elección. En última instancia, nuestro objetivo es que nuestros estudiantes se conviertan en ciudadanos exitosos y responsables en nuestra comunidad. 
 
También estoy muy emocionado de comenzar este año con la adición de una clase de asesoría en todos los horarios de nuestros estudiantes. Esta clase de asesoramiento se implementó para crear una conexión entre los estudiantes y un adulto en el campus, contribuir a una cultura escolar positiva, ayudar con las intervenciones y tener un lugar para las oportunidades de aprendizaje socioemocional. Creo que Willows High School se beneficiará enormemente con este curso de 30 minutos para que sea un complemento para todos los estudiantes.
 
Para mantener la seguridad escolar a la vanguardia, continuaremos implementando las medidas de mitigación que nuestro Superintendente determine que son necesarias para garantizar que la seguridad de nuestro personal y estudiantes sea priorizada en todo momento.Este
 
año renovaremos nuestro compromiso con la excelencia en todo lo que hacemos, mientras buscamos brindar instrucción de clase mundial todos los días con la expectativa de que todos los estudiantes puedan aprender y tener éxito. Continuaremos brindando a los estudiantes oportunidades para abordar las deficiencias académicas, desarrollar habilidades de aritmética y alfabetización, compensar los créditos faltantes, estar preparados para la universidad o la fuerza laboral y tener la oportunidad de participar en clases académicas avanzadas. Continuaremos implementando iniciativas para promover la enseñanza y el aprendizaje, y para involucrar a todas nuestras partes interesadas en el proceso de educar a nuestros estudiantes. Una iniciativa importante para este año es abordar la preocupación por la alfabetización y las matemáticas de los estudiantes. Esperamos asociarnos con nuestros interesados ​​en este esfuerzo que tendrá un impacto positivo en el rendimiento de los estudiantes en cada área de contenido y en su crecimiento académico general. 
 
Estoy entusiasmado con todo lo que este nuevo año escolar tiene para ofrecer y espero trabajar colectivamente para asegurar que nuestra experiencia educativa produzca pensadores críticos, ciudadanos responsables y estudiantes que estén preparados para tener éxito en sus esfuerzos posteriores a la escuela secundaria. La familia de Willows High School tiene como objetivo ser una institución de enseñanza y aprendizaje de clase mundial en nuestro compromiso con la excelencia educativa.
 
Además, hemos agregado dos nuevos consejeros a nuestra familia Honker, Bibiana McNieil y Hunter Thompson. Bibiana McNeil trabajará con todos los estudiantes cuyos apellidos comiencen con AL y Hunter Thompson trabajará con todos los estudiantes cuyos apellidos comiencen con MZ. 
 
Por último, espero construir relaciones con todas las partes interesadas a lo largo de este año y los animo a que se conviertan en miembros activos de nuestros Boosters y la familia Honker. Va a ser un año asombroso.
 
Atentamente,
