Chess Fridays

Come have fun as you learn the exciting and challenging game of chess! Students can achieve 6 rank advancements as new skills are mastered. Chess meetings are Friday mornings at 8am in the Cafeteria and typically run from October through the Friday before Spring break. Chess is free to all members. Parents, Grandparents and friends are invited.

Watch D.O.G.S

WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) fathers and father-figures make a positive impact on Willow Springs students by volunteering to help out at school.

This is how it works:

  1. Register at Volunteer.CanyonsDistrict.org to be a Canyons School District volunteer. Please do this at least 2 days in advance of your first WATCH D.O.G.S. assignment.

  2. At the front-office visitor computers, sign in as a PTA volunteer to get a name badge.

  3. Let the front office staff know you're there to volunteer as a WATCH D.O.G. They will provide a WATCH D.O.G. t-shirt and rules lanyard. As a reference, here are the lunch & recess times should you want to volunteer during those times:

      1. Kindergarten 12:15 - 12:55 lunch, 11:15 - 11:30 recess

      2. 1st 11:30 - 12:10 lunch, 10:15-10:30 & 2:30 - 2:45 recess
