The school year is just around the corner, and Willow staff is rolling up their sleeves and getting the campus ready for the first day.  On Saturday, August 11, 2018, from 9 am to noon, we will be painting one wall in each classroom and planting some greenery outside the building. Please join us for a fantastic opportunity to get to know other Willow scholars and families and to provide meaningful support that will help prepare Willow for a successful first year!

This is a work party both inside and outside the building, so dress for heat and work — don’t forget hats and sunscreen!  We will provide snacks and water.

There will be a HUGE variety of community resources in the lobby before and after the movie to help people identify and understand the symptoms of anxiety and encourage them to reach out for help.

Need help?
