Kris Kringle

One of Willows most beloved traditions, all students, faculty and staff exchange names, hang a stocking on their locker, and give a series of small gifts and clues to their Kris Kringle. It all leads up to a big gift, a big reveal, and an all school Christmas party.

Spirit Week


Students show their school spirit and build friendships with a specific dress theme and activity each day. Spirit week culminates with a class lip sync contest.

Penny Wars
