I am thrilled to be a part of Wilson Elementary School! The faculty and staff prepared all summer for an exciting year of learning and growth. We are looking forward to hearing about your summer adventures, getting caught up with returning families, and meeting our newest members of our Wilson family.

Student success is the goal of every staff member at Wilson Elementary School. We believe with our dedication to high quality, research-based best practices and commitment to social-emotional health, 21st century learning and the highest of academic standards every student will learn to their full potential. We are prepared to offer time and support as needed through interventions and counseling support. I ask for your support and participation in this effort by sending your child on time to school every day, encouraging him/her to read for pleasure each night, monitoring homework and progress, asking your child to share what they learned at school during the week, talking to your child’s teacher about your child’s progress and getting involved.

Finally, we urge and invite you to become involved at Wilson Elementary School! All parents are encouraged to become members of our PTA. It is a membership organization. There are literally hundreds of ways to be involved in PTA activities in both big and small ways depending on the amount of time you have. There are many opportunities to help in the classroom, with field trips, and attend some or all of the many school events. Please check your child’s backpack on a regular basis to ensure you are informed on what’s going on at Wilson. Other places for news and information include the school website, marquee, *REMIND 101 (via a text), email (please make sure the office has your email address), Twitter (@WilsonGUSD), and through your child’s teacher.

In addition, from time to time we may also make automated or personal phone calls to all parents, therefore, it is important we have current phone numbers and emails.

The staff and administration are eager to welcoming you to another wonderful year!
