Principal's Message

Mr. ClarkWelcome to Frances Willard Elementary School, Home of the Wolves!  Frances Willard is home to approximately 300 students, grades K-6.  We currently have two sections at each grade level.  Frances Willard offers a wide variety of academic and leadership programs for our students to maximize each student’s individual potential. 


Frances Willard is a Leader in Me school.  The Leader in Me is based on Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Successful People, but tailored to meet the needs of elementary schools.  All of us at Frances Willard, adults and children alike, work to internalize and demonstrate the Seven Habits and we use them as the basis for all of our relationships both inside and outside of our school.  Through The Leader in Me, we work to help our students identify what they are passionate about, what their goals are, and we help them develop plans to meet those goals. 


Rock Island-Milan School District 41’s purpose is “To educate for individual student success”.  Our focus on meeting the needs of each child academically and through The Leader in Me helps us bring that purpose to life.  Our priorities at Frances Willard and in District 41 are to: 1) Increase student achievement; 2) Build respectful relationships; and 3) Improve operations. 


Thank you for visiting this page and for your interest in Frances Willard Elementary School.  Please feel free to contact me if you would like any additional information.

We, at Frances Willard, are Leaders and Learners.
