What an amazing day today! The perfect way to kick off Cumminuty helpers months! We were so blessed to have Star Police and Middle/Star Fire come and visit us at Willow Tree! They told us all about their jobs, trucks and gave us a few safety tips too! The kids had an absolute blast! Thank you to all first responders! We greatly appreciate all you do!

Our PreK class is such a rockstar crew! They are working so hard on their cvc words, writing and 10 frame numbers and loved our listening center where they got to hear The Little Red Hen! Such a great Monday!


Freezing rain is heading our way! Willow Tree will be closed Thursday, January 18th for safety precautions during travel!
Thank you for understanding and stay warm!

With another round of winter weather, school districts have been announcing closures for Thursday. Here's the list: https://www.ktvb.com/closings


Willow Tree will be closed today, January 17th, for a Snow Day ❄️ Four inches of fresh snow overnight and freezing temperatures have made road conditions unsafe for travel. Thank you for understanding and we will hopefully see everyone tomorrow! Stay safe and warm!


There will be no school today, Wednesday, January 10th, for a SNOW DAY! We believe the safety of our families comes first and hope you understand! Please pass the word along to your fellow classmates if you see this!

We would love to see your fun pictures of playing in the snow, making some sweet memories! Email them to Willow Tree ☃️

Thank you and hopefully we will be back tomorrow!

AM PreK had such a fun feast together! We practiced our table manners, tried new foods, and thanked each of our friends for being generous and kind!
Have a great Thanksgiving with your families! We are so thankful for each and every one of you!


We love our Willow Tree families with our whole entire beings. And we love to support them however we can! Our sweet Casch family is in the process of adopting another child from South Korea and their fundraiser is still going on! You can support them by purchasing a cute sweatshirt/shirt by visiting

They’re so soft and comfy for this upcoming winter and your purchase will benefit an amazing fundraiser for an amazing family! ❤️❤️❤️

We LOVE you both so, so much!!


‘Twas the night before our FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!! We can’t wait to start a new adventure with our friends and watch them grow ❤️ Let’s do this!!

We met while teaching together 7 years ago and are so thankful to be back to teach together again! We love watching and encouraging our little friends grow into friendships that may last a lifetime! 💚
