From The Principal

Dear Wiley Families,

Happy first day of fall!  Autumn is my favorite time of year ~ all the sights and smells of the season are a delight to the senses.

School routines are well underway and children are engaged in learning.  NWEA testing has begun.  These assessments help identify individual needs in both math and reading,  allowing teachers to deliver personalized instruction.  Results will be shared with parents at fall conferences.

Thank you for those of you who were able to attend our virtual Open House.  If you were unable to attend, please reach out the the teacher or specialist and they can send you a link to their presentation.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Fall Fundraiser  ~ it was a huge success!   We will be using proceeds to purchase new gym equipment that will be used throughout the year and for Field Day in the spring.  In addition, we will use funds for virtual assemblies, virtual field trips, and more!  

Picture Day is coming this Thursday, October 7.  Information on ordering can be found in the current  issue of the  Wiley Way, as well as other important items.  

Thank you for all you do to help make Wiley the awesome school community that it is!  Working together, we can accomplish anything!

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.

UCS Vision

All children have the right to a rigorous, high-quality education which meets their individual needs. UCS will respect, encourage and empower each and every student to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful, contributing members of a diverse community and global society.

UCS Mission

We are committed to exemplary teaching and learning in order for our students to be prepared for success in the 21st Century.
We will achieve this commitment by engaging the entire community to focus on each child's achievement, with the expectation that every student will pursue some type of post-high school educational endeavor.
