Dear Parents/Guardians/Families:


It's hard to believe we are wrapping up another great year at Wilson Elementary! We are so thankful for the warmer weather and sunshine! 

We have a very busy month left of school. They are finishing up testing with NWEA’s, going on many field trips, participating in the All-City Track meet, having fun in our final ROAR celebration and honoring our 5th graders with a graduation ceremony on May 31st.

Diane Louris, Master Gardener, will plant her final garden at Wilson. If you would like to share your love of gardening with our eager students, please consider being a Wilson garden volunteer. Contact the front office for additional information.


Keep in mind just because it’s summer doesn’t mean learning has to pause. Keep up with summer reading. To get more fluent in reading it takes practice and the more often children read, the more proficient they become. So don’t let summer slip away – keep your child’s brain active through reading to help them grow.


A reminder about our new before school interview format to start our 2018-19 school year. This is a great opportunity for families and students to meet with their teachers and start building relationships from the first day they meet. Please see the dates below for the before school interviews. A reminder that families will sign up for a time to meet with their child’s new teacher in early August. Feel free to call the Wilson office if you have questions about this new format.


It's been a privilege to be your Principal this year and I look forward to a terrific 2018-19! We would all like to thank you for sharing your children and allowing us to help them grow! Enjoy your summer!
