The mission of the Family Circle is to build a sense of community among Willowbrook families. We live by the notion that it takes a community to raise a child and the Family Circle helps to provide the link between parents and the teaching staff. Its objective is to create a welcoming place for all parents to support various school initiatives. Whether you live locally or if you are on assignment living abroad, the Family Circle provides the supportive atmosphere that is the signature of our community. The Family Circle is divided into several groups.
