From Williams Elementary School: As we wrapped up March is Reading Month and reading the book The Adventures of a South Pole Pig together as a school, we had a generous donation from County National Bank allowing us to treat our students to ice cream treats (Since we read about Antarctica, we though a "cold" treat was perfect)! The only catch was, they had to figure out how much it was going to cost for their ice cream, the classroom's ice cream, and the cost for the entire school! What a way to be financially literate... even at a young age. The kids learned a lot and enjoyed the treat. #countynationalbank #CNB
From Williams Elementary: We had a great turnout for our first week "Run Through Michigan." Many students completed the "Traverse City" challenge and received their postcard today!

Thank you to all the cities who donated the postcards for each of our cities! We appreciate your support of our new program. #puremichigan #tawascity #lakehuron

From Williams Elementary School: This morning we had a special visitor Zoom with Mrs. Snyder's 3rd grade class for WORLD READ ALOUD DAY! Sandra Markle reached out to Mrs. Snyder and asked if she could read to her class. She read parts of her book WHAT IF YOU COULD SNIFF LIKE A SHARK? (See picture). After reading she spent a few minutes answering questions. Sandra Markle was a teacher, she was Ms. Whiz demonstrating science on local television in Georgia, and she has worked with CNN, PBS, and even Nickelodeon. This is a once in a lifetime experience for them as 3rd graders and Sandra told them that they were the ONLY class that she was reading to today.

TAKE OUT MEAL DISTRIBUTION ***(Respond by 3:00pm TODAY)*** In order to help families who may be struggling during the shut down, the Jonesville Community School district has created a “take out” meals day. Prepared meals are available for all children in the community ages 18 and under. Children are not required to be of school age or to attend Jonesville Schools to get a meal. Other schools are also providing this service for all kids in the county. Our pick up day will be Tuesday, March 24 from 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM at Williams Elementary School. Please enter the Maumee Street lot, stay in your vehicle and meals will be brought to you.. We will be providing four days worth of cold breakfast and cold lunch for each child in the household. ****To help us plan for the number of children who will use this service we are asking that you email the food service director by TODAY, Thursday, March 19th at 3:00 PM with the number of children you plan to pick up meals for so we can try to get an accurate count on how much food we will need to order. The email address is email@example.com.**** We hope that you are all safe and sound. Remember to have your children check for their schoolwork and stay on a normal schedule as much as possible. Sincerely, Chellie Broesamle
