Dear Wilson Families:

What a great 2018-19 year! It's hard to believe we are wrapping up another year at Wilson Elementary! After all the snow this winter we are so thankful for the warmer weather and sunshine!

The last month of school is full of exciting activities for our students. Students are finishing up testing with MCA’s, going on many field trips and participating in the Wilson and All-City Track meet. We will honor our 5th graders with a graduation ceremony on June 4th and our final ROAR celebration will he held on June 5th. Due to our several snow days Owatonna’s last day of elementary school is scheduled for June 6th. Our goal is to make these activities positive and productive. We would like to address some behavior reminders and our stance on attendance/participation on field trips and special events. Each day, and every day we expect ROAR behaviors: Respect, Ownership, Positive Attitude, Responsibility, and Safety. Please take some time to remind your child of the expected behavior. We would like all students to be able to participate but will have alternative activities scheduled at school on field trip/event days for students who are not able to demonstrate the ROAR behavior.

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.

It's been a privilege to be your Principal this year and I look forward to a successful 2019-20! We would all like to thank you for sharing your children and allowing us to help them grow!

Enjoy your summer!
