Final Entry

As many of you know, I will not return to Williams Middle School for the 2012-2013 school year.  I want to thank everyone for their support and encourage you to continue doing so.  My years here have been fantastic and I will cherish the memories and the relationships. Williams Middle is such a great school! I look forward to reading about and hearing great things about the school and community in the future. Have a wonderful summer and Go Hawks!

Final PTSA Meeting for 2012

The last PTSA General Membership Meeting is Thursday, May 17th at 6pm in the school auditorium.

We have a lot to discuss in regard to the great success of the Spring Carnival and the even greater success of the Chrysler Drive for the Kids!

We have a considerable amount of money, compared to years past, and need your input, advice and ideas as to what to do with it all.  We also need positions filled on the executive board and committee chairs for the upcoming school year.

It's not too late to join the PTSA ($6) or join for next year!

Looking to see you Thursday, May 17th at 6pm in the school auditorium!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

This week has been designated as Teacher Appreciation Week!  Although we appreciate our teachers all year long, this week is an excellent time to show it.  Send a note, give them a positive phone call or even better, give your time.  Our wonderful PTSA is sponsoring duty free lunch on Friday and we would love to have you as a volunteer.  Just call the school if you are available between 11:50am and 1:15pm.  Our teachers have worked hard this year so let's show them a little love!  Thanks for all you do!  Go Hawks!

Join us this Saturday!! We have some great activities for the whole family & we need your support! Here's a snapshot: The UAH School of Engineering MindSet Program will take place at Williams Saturday morning, from 9-12. Only 50 students will be able to participate. Sign up sheets are available at the front desk. The Chrysler Drive for the Kids begins at 11am. Volunteers are needed to help register drivers to test drive the 2012 Town and Country and process surveys. Chrysler would like to see 150+ drivers turn out for this event. If we meet or exceed that number, they will make this a yearly event! While your child is at Mindset, please come test drive a car and stay for the Carnival and Talent show! Williams will make $10 for every licensed driver 18 years and older who test drives a 2012 Town and Country!!!! The Carnival plans are as follows: 20 volunteers are needed to supervise games for the whole time (2/game from 10am til 2 or 3pm) Pre-sold wrist bands are $5, the kids can do all the games as many times as they want. Tickets for the games to be sold at the door, .25/ticket, 5 for a dollar. Popcorn, candy, soda and water will be available at the concession stand for cash. Call the office to volunteer to help!

Good Ole Days Spring Carnival

With spring comes fresh flowers, sprouting trees, and fundraisers!

On Saturday April 28, 2012  our PTSA will host our Good Ole Days Spring Carnival, and our 1st Drive 4Kids fundraiser! Our Carnival will feature the UAH MindSET Engineering and Math Workshop (in the morning), our Spring Talent Fest (in the afternoon), and of course games and food all day! Come join the fun! Bingo, ring toss, cake walk, face painting, and much more! We are so excited about The Chrysler Corporation Fundraiser at our Carnival! This fundraiser is very easy in that we don’t have to sell anything! We simply just need your “Time” to test drive a car. How does this work you might ask? Chrysler will donate $10 to our school for every adult over the age of 18 with a valid driver's license that drives a car around the school campus. We need your support!

See you Saturday, April 28th from 9am-2pm!  We will have a Good Ole Time!!!
