From The Principal

Hello Wiley Families,

It is hard to believe that school is just around the corner!  I hope that you and your family have enjoyed a wonderful summer.

The entire Wiley Staff is busy preparing for the start of the year, anxious to meet their new students.

Please be sure to read the newsletter as it arrives, as it contains a lot of important information.  You can read it here: Wi Wiley Way.  

Please plan to join us for our SNEAK PEEK which will occur on Monday, August 29th from 5:50-6:60 PM.  This will provide an opportunity for you and your child to tour the building, check out their classroom, and ease some beginning the school year jitters.   Additionally, you are invited to attend the Wiley Volunteer Ice Cream Social after visiting the rooms.

As always, thank you for all you do to help make Wiley the awesome school community that it is!  Working together, we will continue to accomplish great things!

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
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 booklists for recommendations.
