From The Principal

Dear Wiley Families ~

It is hard to believe that October has arrived! Classroom and school-wide expectations have been established and routines are well underway. Please read the October Newsletter to learn about the great things happening at Wiley as well as many upcoming events. Please click here.

Be sure to take time to enjoy the beauty of fall ~ whether it is a trip to the cider mill, playing in a pile of leaves, enjoying one last camping weekend, or just taking a walk. Michigan is at its best in autumn. 

Thank you for all you do to support your children and their learning; working together we can help them to succeed!

Sincerely,
Mrs. Merivirta

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.
