From The Principal

Hello Wiley Families ~

Mid -winter break is here!  There will be no school Monday, February 17-Friday, February 21.  School will resume on Monday, February 24.

With the end of February fast approaching, Wiley staff have been busy organizing events for a fun-filled March is Reading Month.  Under the leadership of Mrs. Baydoun (Media Center) and Mrs. Gabriel (Literacy Coach/Consultant), a months worth of events have been planned to foster the love of reading, as well as improving literacy skills.  Students will be encouraged to read beyond school  We are hoping that you will be involved and share your enjoyment of reading as well.

Our Kindergarten Open House will be held on Wednesday, March 11, 2020.  If you have a student who will be starting Kindergarten this fall, or know someone else who will, please plan on attending!   More information to come.

Thank you for being an integral partner in your child's education!

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
