Principal's Message

Wilson Students and Parents,

      It is a pleasure and honor to be Principal of Wilson Elementary School. where all students are the “Roadrunner Scholars.”  Because of this, Wilson Elementary School beams with pride.  At Wilson Elementary School, we strive to offer a positive, challenging, and instructional learning experience for ALL children in our community that will touch the hearts and minds of our students in a special way.  We believe that every student has the ability to reach great educational heights and that it is our responsibility to create learning opportunities that allow students to be, and act, as scholars.  We recognize that this is a task that requires a great deal of teamwork between teachers, students and parents.  Since we hold high expectations for our students, we recognize that parental involvement is crucial in the reaching of the goal of academic success. 
     At Wilson, we have a group of highly qualified teachers who work collaboratively with grade level colleagues in order to create an instructional program that is filled with enriching experiences. It is these experiences that will work toward preparing our students for college and career readiness.  To be prepared for this task, teachers take advantage of a variety of training opportunities to continue to grow as experts.  Our goal is to meet the needs of each student by delivering a balanced instructional program that includes clear objectives, teacher modeling, guided student practice, and supported independent application of skills, strategies and concepts.  
     As you enter our doors, you will see students engaged in whole group instruction, by eagerly sharing ideas and responding to open ended questions using high-level academic language.  Further, you will be able to observe students working cooperatively, in small groups, as they work together to solve whatever problem is at hand.
     High expectations for student achievement as well as igniting the excitement of learning are at the core of my educational beliefs.  I value the importance of mentoring students to new heights, while maintaining the necessary support systems to ensure that all students have access to the rigor of the new standards.  As a result, our Roadrunner Scholars will become 21st Century learners who are technologically savvy, creative problem solvers, effective communicators, and productive, flexible leaders who are ready to thrive in our ever-changing and diverse world. 
     Just like Michelangelo, who envisioned beautiful sculptures that he was then able to create out of unshaped marble block, at Wilson, we recognize and keep in mind the fantastic “sculptures” that we are privileged to be a part of shaping.  Each student is in the process of becoming a work of art, which will be evident when others see the beauty of each enthusiastic and educated mind, ready to be important contributors to society, and in the process of creating their own noteworthy history. 
     I am committed to supporting the students, teachers, and community at Wilson as we work together to see ALL students achieve to their greatest potential by working together to provide the best education possible.  With great excitement, together with our wonderful teaching and support staff, I look forward to an outstanding 2015-2016 school year.
