WILSON ELEMENTARY WILDCAT FACTS
Wilson Elementary School serves 462 students in Kindergarten through grade six, with an additional 50 children in our preschool. We are proud of our diverse student population that allows us to develop a mutual understanding of working collaboratively to support our students. Our teachers and staff are committed to providing a rigorous and comprehensive academic program. We are excited to be able to provide students with one-to-one technology in grades 4-6 as well as challenging music and science programs.
Each Friday, we will be holding Wildcat Rallies starting right at 8:15. You are invited to serve as a spectator to see performances by one class per week and find out which student's names are drawn for Wildcat Tickets prizes. This will be a great opportunity to hear important announcements and join in the fun with our school!
MONTHLY GROWTH MINDSET
Each month we will be focusing on a growth mindset to foster positive growth in our school community. Our Wildcat Student Council will be announcing the trait at the first Wildcat Rally of the month.
Growth mindset trait for February: HARD WORK
For the month of February, the monthly growth mindset is Hard Work.
Preparing for Success means you must work hard. Are you preparing to Succeed or preparing to fail? If you are looking for the easy way, a shortcut, or trick, you are preparing to fail because success requires old-fashioned hard work. Remember: Only you know if you are working as hard as you can.

SCHOOL AND DISTRICT NEWS
Weather Update #2
In an abundance of caution, the district office activated our Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at 10:55 AM today so that we could closely monitor the storm as it developed throughout the day and provide necessary resources and communication to our school sites. We would like to thank all of our staff, students, parents, and community for your cooperation today and attention to safety. We expect to deactivate our EOC by 9:00 P.M. this evening. All of our students have been safely dismissed from school with the exception of those students involved in afterschool activities. Over the break our staff will be working hard to ensure that any damage caused by the rain and high winds is repaired before our students return to class on Monday, February 27, 2017. Again we sincerely thank you for your cooperation.
