From The Principal

Dear Wiley Families ~

It is hard to believe that August is already here!  Please note that the office staff and I are back ; the office will be open from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm daily.

As you begin the much anticipated back to school shopping, you may find the suggested supply list helpful (located within the ABOUT US tab).

Every year teachers provide recommended supply lists.   Although the district provides funds that allow school to buy supplies your child may need to be successful, if you would like your child to have their own personal supplies, please feel free to purchase from the list.  Some grade levels have also asked for resources such as Kleenex that could be used by the entire class.  Please do not feel obligated to purchase any of the items listed for your child's grade.   

Please enjoy these last few weeks of summer ~ making memories to cherish throughout the year.   Information about upcoming upcoming events to begin the year will be sent out soon!

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
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
