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 Families,

It is my pleasure to welcome you 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.

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.

I am proud of the staff here at WES, and I am honored to serve as principal. My vision for our school community is one where school and family works together to achieve success for our students. There are many ways that families can get involved in our school:

  • volunteer in the classroom
  • participate in our Parent Advisory Group 
  • attend parent-teacher conferences 
  • talk regularly with your child’s teacher about how best to help your child at home

All of these are ways that you can support the efforts of teachers to provide a high quality education for our students. 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.

Let's make it a great school year!
