Congratulations Ms. Ball
Congratulations and Best Wishes to Ms. Ball 
Dear Mary Williams Students, Families, and Staff:
It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter to officially announce my appointment as Assistant Principal of Bristow Run Elementary School effective July 22, 2015. I am so proud to have been a part of the Mary Williams family for eight years and to have been part of such educational excellence.
Mary Williams is an outstanding school with exceptional students, dedicated staff members, and supportive parents. This school will always hold a special place in my heart and I will treasure the memories I have of working with students and being a part of your community.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for the support I have received during my time at Mary Williams. It has truly been a privilege to work with you!
With heartfelt appreciation and sincerest thanks,
Lynn Ball

Panther Cub Bank
This was the 5th year that United Bank and Mary Williams ES partnered together for the Panther Cub Bank.   
Thank you for allowing us to come in and work with the students, it was another successful year:
  • We started with 46 applications, interviewed and hired 26 students and ended the year with 24.
  • The bank was open 18 days, we missed 6 due to weather/fire drills.
  • The tellers took in 138 deposits totaling about $1200
  • We currently have 41 accounts with balances of $100,117.00
  • The winner for most deposits made this year was Sophia Borders
  • The Class with the most students making the most deposits was Ms Ames class
We had wonderful parent helpers, Rita Kervalavich and Melanie Eddy.They ran the marketing department and did an awesome job. They created and produced the commercials that were seen by the students, they had posters and flyers that were hung all over the school, they also created the Thank you card that was sent to Carlos Castro/ Todos Supermarket ( our T-shirt sponsor). We could not have done it without them.
Everyone did an amazing job and we're looking forward to coming back next year.   
Thank you for your support!
