Welcome to the Home of the Cowkids

Willcox Elementary School (WES) is located in Willcox, Arizona, in the southeast corner of the state, and we are part of the greater Willcox Unified School District.

We have developed this website to keep our teachers, students, parents, and community informed about everything going on at WES. Please take time to browse the site and learn more about all WES has to offer. You will find that we are a special school with a great staff and students.

A Message from our Principal

Dear W.E.S. Families,

Welcome to our Willcox Elementary School website. I hope you will look around to see all of the information offered here and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

The 2019–2020 WUSD theme is “Live Your Legacy”, so our focus here at WES will be to help our students “dream” – to think about what their dreams might be and how they will turn those dreams into reality. We want all of our students to be unafraid to have big dreams, to have courage and creativity to try new things, to have the strength and wisdom to overcome obstacles and make a difference, in their own lives and the lives of others. In the words of Walt Disney, “If you can dream it, you can do it.”

Our elementary school provides a top-notch education to students in pre-kindergarten through fourth grade. Our focus is on providing a learning experience for our students that includes not only the core academic classes, but also art, music, physical education, computer classes, and many more learning activities.

There are many ways that families can support the efforts of teachers to provide a high-quality education for our students. We always welcome volunteers in the classroom and we need Parent Advisory Group participation. Most importantly, I hope you'll make it your goal to see that your child reads every day at home and comes to school prepared each day.
