Our theme this year is

I Can Be a Shining Star and Follow the Wildcat Way!

We are committed to ensuring all students are successful and grow and develop, both academically and socially, in a safe, supportive school environment. We are very appreciative of the support you provide as parents-your children benefit in many ways when we are partners and focused on their successes.


Willow Canyon Wildcats are:


If you are responsible, your teachers and parents can count on you to; 1) do what you say, 2) give your best effort, and 3) take care of the things you are accountable for doing. A responsible person is also able to independently make good choices.  If they make a mistake, they answer for their own behavior - they don't make excuses.


We behave in ways that keep us safe and those around us from being harmed. 


Being respectful means treating others in a thoughtful and kind way.  It means we treat others the way we would like to be treated.

November is a perfect attendance month!

All students who come to school on time and stay the full day, every day during the month, will have perfect attendance. 

September was a perfect attendance month!  We had 248 students with perfect attendance, which is 65% of students.  Way to go Wildcats! Let’s see if we can top this in November.
