It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to Willow Dale Elementary School. We hope that this year will be a successful one for everyone. Our staff is committed to excellence and understands that each child is a “shared responsibility.” Currently, our school has approximately 830 students in Grades K-5. We have both Learning and Emotional Support teachers and contract specialized, support services such as hearing support, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and language therapy, and vision support through our collaboration with PTS and the Bucks County Intermediate Unit #22. Finally, we benefit from the full time services of our school guidance counselors, psychologist, and reading specialist. Our staff members take great pride in their work and you will find them coming into school early in the morning, and working long after the children leave to prepare lessons, which are standards-based, and ones that inspire children to learn. They are dedicated, hardworking and deeply care about the children with whom they work each and every day. Willow Dale provides a positive atmosphere for students to learn and grow, and the staff has high expectations for all students, and will work to help each individual reach his or her full potential.
Research shows that when there is close cooperation between the home and school, it will benefit the child exponentially. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend scheduled school events and conferences throughout the year, as well as volunteering whenever possible. If you have not done so, already we would encourage you to become an active member of the Home and School Association, and to become involved with your child's education here at Willow Dale. It is our hope that this website will be helpful to you and that it will promote a positive experience for everyone. Should you have any questions, which are not covered in this website, please feel free to call the school office at 215-441-6093 for additional assistance.
