From The Principal

Hello Wiley Families ~

It is hard to believe that we are into December!  Students at Wiley have been busy collecting food and toys for those in need.  They continue to amaze as they generously share with those who need a little extra help, particularly at this time of year.  Thank you to you for supporting your child and helping them to the understand the importance of taking action and helping others. 

 Cold weather is definitely upon us! Please be sure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather ~ winter coats, mittens or gloves, hats, scarves and boots! Students go out for lunch recess every day, unless the temperatures are extreme.

Lastly, thank you to those of you who continuously work to ensure safety in dropping of and picking up students.  It is important that everyone is mindful of others as our parking lot is quite busy.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!

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
