Campus newsletters are published monthly during the school year.  Parents receive copies by email or regular mail at their option. Each issue contains a message from the superintendent, reviews of events such as field trips and special occasions as well as recognition of student accomplishments – both on campus and off campus.  Our students are often engaged in off campus activities such as art, chess, dance, golf, gymnastics, theater and other competitive activities.

Willow Bend Academy has a slogan “Time is Not Progress. Progress is Progress”.  Our goal with each student is to see them make progress.  Some make less progress in the same amount of time as others who seem to accomplish more.  However, if a student is learning to his/her capacity, progress is being made and those students are equally successful. In our environment, students do not necessarily compete with other. They compete with themselves.  As they achieve small successes, they are encouraged to greater achievements and deserve to be recognized in our monthly newsletters.

Academic progress recognition is given in each newsletter for productivity as well as for demonstration of new knowledge students have acquired.  The Top Scholar award recognizes students whose productivity is above the established minimum goal. Olympic scholar awards are presented to students from each campus who were the most productive students in their category.  The Archer award is for the student “on target” for making the highest cumulative grade average for the month while the Honor Roll recognizes all students who achieved a 90 or above test average for the month.
