PRINCIPAL ' S MESSAGE - I think the following quotation has meaning for us in 1961: When we were boys, boys had to do a little work in school. They were not coaxed; they were hammered. Spelling, writing and arithmetic were not elective; and you had to learn. In these more fortunate times, elementary education has become in many places a sort of vaudeville show. The child must be kept amused and learns what he pleases. This complaint about the schools appeared in the New York Sun of October 5, 1902. People still complain about education, and in some ways it is good - if it leads to learning more about the program of the school, visiting the campus, talking with teachers and other staff members, and making a real effort to understand the whole program offered all the students. Willard is an exciting and stimulating school in which to learn. We have students of many races, of a variety of social, cultural and economic backgrounds; and of a great diversity of talents. This great diversity of needs is being met by a devoted staff who remain at Willard because they like boys and girls and because they find teaching here rewarding and stimulating. In our school, teaching and learning are carried on in a multitude of ways as we try to meet the varied needs of our boys and girls. Through our classroom work, our club activities, our athletic program, and our general student activities, we are giving all our students valuable opportunities to learn to get along with their peers and to work together in friendship, understanding, and harmony. Willard has been named for one of the great women of our country, Frances E. Willard. I’d like to close this message with some words of advice she has passed on to all of us: The world wants the best thing - it wants your best. Our desire at Willard is to help each student bring out the best that is in him. Sincerely, Arthur V. Shearer
