 From The Principal

Dear Wiley Families,

As the 2017 - 2018 school year comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Wiley’s staff, parents and students for making this school year a positive and productive one. To the staff, thank-you again for all that you do each and every day. I sincerely appreciate your enthusiasm for teaching, your dedication to your students, and your commitment to making Wiley such a special place to be! All of you truly care for children, and work hard to ensure success for all students.

Parents, thank-you for all that you do to make sure your children are prepared for success. I am extremely grateful for all the time and effort all of you put forth over the course of the school year. I know, as we continue to work in partnership, wonderful experiences and opportunities await all Wiley students! Also, a huge thank you goes out to the Coyote Volunteer League. Your continued support to the students and staff is deeply appreciated!

And to the students, thank-you for being you! Each day I am reminded of how very fortunate I am to be here! I am very proud of each and every one of you and all that you have accomplished. Your talents, your personalities, and most important your continued effort make it a real pleasure to be principal at Wiley! Simply put, you are the best!

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.
