 From The Principal

Dear Wiley Families,

Please read below regarding the safety and security procedures we will follow here at Wiley.

Students that walk to school/dropped off by parents should not arrive before 8:50 A.M. Only kindergarten students are to enter through the front doors; all other students are to line up at their respective recess doors off the play-pad. Those students coming for breakfast will enter through the doors near the access to the kitchen. All students arriving after our 9:00 A.M. start time need to be escorted to the office by a parent/guardian and signed in.

All parents/visitors coming to Wiley will be asked their reason for coming here and will be required to show a picture I.D. to the camera located above the front entrance. When the door opens, they are to proceed immediately to the office. If you are planning to come to school to drop off lunch, homework, pick up your child for early dismissal, etc.; please call ahead so we can expect your arrival.

School doors will remain locked throughout the night. If your child has left something at school such as homework, you will need to return to Wiley before 4:30 P.M. The office staff will allow you in but please remember to bring a picture I.D.

 Please be assured that the safety and security of your children will always be our top priority.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to give me a call.

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
We 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.
