From The Principal

Dear Parents,

Communication between parents and teachers is a crucial aspect of a successful school year.  This past month all of you had the opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher during Parent/Teacher conferences.  We had a fantastic turnout!  Over 98% of our families were able to meet with the teachers and discuss their child’s progress this year. Thank you all for being here! Though scheduled conferences will not occur again until February, Wiley teachers, as well as myself, are always willing to meet with you throughout the school year. Just let us know and we will be happy to arrange a meeting.

Chris Cassin 

 


Our Mission
The mission of our school is to create and maintain an environment that ensures that every member of the school community reaches a high level of academic achievement as determined by local, state and national standards. We commit to a comprehensive system of support to assure this outcome.

Our Philosophy
‚ÄčWe the staff, students, and community of Wiley strive to develop the whole person who grows academically, socially, and emotionally in an environment that encourages life-long learning and productive living.

“Summer slide” is a true phenomenon. Summer slide is when students lose some of the academic gains they made during the previous school year, from lack of practice during the summer months. Read on to find out how to stop the summer slide from happening with your child in reading! 

Six books to summer success: Research shows that reading and rereading at least six books during the summer may keep a reader from falling behind. When choosing the six books, be sure that they are just right — not too hard and not too easy.
How do you choose the books….Take advantage of your local library. Ask for help selecting books that match your child's age, interests, and abilities. Libraries often run summer reading programs that motivate kids to read, so find out what's available in your area. Also check scholastic.com booklists for recommendations.

Utica Community Schools is Michigan's second largest school district.   

Student achievement in the district outpaces all county, state and national averages. The district's graduation rate is 12 points higher than the state average and students and staff are regularly honored for excellence.
