Dear Williams Families,

      I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2014-15 school year!  Summer has come and gone and we must now move forward with many exciting changes that follow.  We have been very busy throughout our school this summer.  Everything is progressing smoothly to a great opening of a school on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.
      I am privileged to have the opportunity to be the new Principal at Williams and I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and all of the supportive parents.  I strongly believe the elementary years are critical to the development of all students and families and I look forward in working with all of you to make this school year successful.  I am passionate about education, and as a result I am committed to students and families as well as a love for learning new things.
      Our school has undergone some faculty changes.  Our new staff comes to us with a variety of experiences and talents.  We are excited to have them and join our “Panther Family”.  Our teachers have been working very hard in preparing their classrooms and lesson plans that promise to make for another exciting and productive year at Williams Elementary.  We want to thank our custodial staff who has been working diligently to prepare our school for the start of the new year.  All we await now is our fabulous Panther students.
      Please visit our school website and Facebook page.  This will serve as a resource tool for all upcoming events, student/parent handbook, important reminders, and you can catch up with our monthly “Panther News” newsletter.
      In closing, please enjoy the remaining days of summer.  I look forward to seeing you soon.  Our vision of success begins September 2, 2014.
      Sincerely,
      Mrs. Colón,    Mary Williams Elementary Principal

Online Enrollment for Student Accident Insurance
Student accident insurance offers a low-cost way to obtain medical or dental coverage. It can fill in the gaps in a family’s insurance plan or serve as primary accident insurance for those who have no other policy. According to the PWCS Office of Risk Management and Security Services, some parents mistakenly believe that the Division provides blanket medical insurance for students when they are at school or involved in a school activity. However, this is not the case, reports Patti Pittman, Director of Risk Management and Security Services.
Parents are urged to read the information available on the PWCS student accident insurance provider’s Web site carefully before making a decision. Student accident insurance is important for families who lack other insurance for their children or have major medical plans with ever-increasing deductibles, and co-insurance requirements.
For the second year, enrollment is electronic and students will not receive the familiar paper application in their back-to-school materials. Using a dedicated and secure enrollment Web site, http://markel.sevencorners.com, parents are able to:
  • View all of the coverage and premium options;
  • Review a “Frequently Asked Questions” section; and
  • Purchase the insurance using a credit/debit card and receive an instant and printable confirmation of purchase.
Direct any questions on this, or any other school-related insurance issue, to the PWCS Office of Risk Management and Security at 703.791.7206.
