Enjoy Summer Vacation and Thank You for Another Great Year!
It is that time of year again when we clean out desks, take down the inspirational posters, and pack up reading and textbooks. It is with mixed feelings that we prepare to say goodbye to yet another school year. And actually, we are also busy with planning for the 13/14 school year…
Our students continued to learn and expand their knowledge as demonstrated by fascinating facts in the 1st grade mammal books, weather reports on the iPads from 2nd graders, 95% proficient/advanced on the 3rd grade reading TCAP, 4th graders sharing information through their state fair research, while 5th grade enhanced their understanding of science concepts through presentations and dissections. Your child’s mind is impacted everyday by meaningful instruction!
Our staffing will look slightly different for next school year:
► Ms. Dawn Davies, counselor will be fulltime at Powell MS
► Ms. Devon Reinert will be AM 5th Gr and PM Dean of Students
► Ms. Carol Boorom will be AM Technology and PM 5th Gr
► Mr. Steve Reger will be PM Technology
► Ms. Tanya Friesen will be full time 4th Gr
► Ms. Kristie Blackwood will be AM kindergarten
We say good bye to Mrs. Riscoe as she retires from years of building a strong foundation for our kindergarten students, we know she will enjoy her new journey with family and friends. Ms. Davies has been a valuable addition to our student’s social/emotional wellbeing as well as a “paws-itive” staff member! The Dean of Students will assist with our PBIS, positive behavior model which encompasses discipline, and other aspects of supporting student needs.
Finally, all of the wonderful things that make up Wilder couldn’t happen without all of you! Our PTO began a new fundraiser this fall with the Direct Giving Campaign; much to our surprise the amount raised surpassed our goal! In late winter you once again showed your support by attending the annual silent auction, walking away with fabulous items all the while supporting Wilder’s technology and programming plans. PTO will post a list of all of the fantastic ways your $$$ are spent at Wilder. Did you know Wilder boasts one of the highest volunteer hours in LPS? Your time keeps our library running, classrooms buzzing, and technology ticking!
On behalf of the entire staff, THANK YOU for a successful school year!
