August 2023

Dear Williams Families,

I hope you've all rested and enjoyed the beautiful weather this summer. As we near the end of August, we’d like to welcome you to the 2023-24 school year at Fred L. Williams Elementary School. We have been busy making preparations in order to set up our students for a successful new school year. Our Wildcats will be receiving engaging and high-quality instruction with an updated math curriculum, one-on-one student electronic devices, enrichment and acceleration opportunities as well as as an expanded music program. School safety will continue being a high priority. Please join us in welcoming Officer Abel Alaniz who will be joining us as our District's new School Resource Officer.

Our Williams School office is open and ready to assist the community with school and registration questions and will continue offering counter help from 7:30-4:00 PM.  Please remember that students will return to school earlier this year on TUESDAY, 08/22/23. In addition, our Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten students will be attending school full-time beginning on the first day of school this year. Schedules by grade level will be as follows:

  • Grades TK-K: 8:00-2:00 PM (NEW HOURS)

  • Grades 1-3: 8:00-2:20 PM

  • Grades 4-5: 8:00-2:35 PM

You will have one more day to pickup first day of school packets, teacher assignments and classroom numbers on Monday, 08/21/23 from 10:00-2:00 PM. In the meantime, please fill out the first day of school packets and return the completed paperwork to your child's teacher on the first day of school.

I appreciate the support of our wonderful school team and am proud to work alongside our amazing Williams team. Please be advised that our school counselor, Laura Hernandez, and our Healthy Start social worker, Kenya Dominguez, will be returning to support students and families. We look forward to working with our community and are excited to start the year. Assemblies and school rules will support our school motto - Our Wildcats are respectful, kind and responsible. Let's continue looking out for each other to help us stay safe and healthy.

We appreciate your patience, support and cooperation as we work together this year. Please remember to stay in touch and reach out to team members and me this year. If you have questions or concerns, you may contact our wonderful office team at (805) 488-3541 but you may also maintain contact with teachers, the school principal, school counselor and social worker through our Parent Square app as well. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
