From The Principal

Hello Wiley Families ~

During November, Wiley Elementary will distribute report cards electronically.  The first marking period grades will be sent to families after scheduled parent-teacher conferences at the end of the day on Tuesday, November 19, 2019.

To receive  the report cards, parents will need to have a secre PowerSchool account.  Parents who do not have access to a PowerSchool account will need to register for one prior to Friday, November 8.  The report cards will then be automatically emailed to the address that is used to register the PowerSchool account.  If you already have a PowerSchool account, you do not need to take any further action.  The report card automatically will be sent to you electronically.

If you need assistance in logging into your PowerSchool account, we will have assistance for you available the evening of November 14, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.

Please note that if you have students in junior high school and high school, the report cards will be electronically sent by the end of the day, Friday, November 8, 2019.

As always, thank you for all you do to help ensure the success of your child!

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.

UCS Vision
