From The Principal

Hello Wiley Families ~

Last week letters went home to parents of all students in Grades 4-6 who took the M-STEP this past spring. An email was sent that included a link on how to read/interpret your child's scores.

Wiley is proud to announce that in nearly every assessment area our students out performed students across the district as well as performing better than last year's groups!

This is a testament to the dedication of the entire Wiley Staff to ensure that students are successful. On a daily basis, staff works to meet the individual needs of their students and find ways to motivate and encourage them to strive for their personal best.

In addition, this is a reflection of the value that you as parents place on your child's education.  Encouraging them to set goals, assume responsibility for their learning and helping them to complete assignments helps them to be successful at well.  A strong home-school connection is important and we appreciate all that you do to foster that connection.

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.
