Dear Wilson Families,

We just finished up with another PTO fundraiser with Great American Fundraiser. The PTO raises money for playground equipment, ROAR Celebrations, field trips, books for students and teachers and much more! We are so fortunate to have a community of parents who dedicate their time and talent to create opportunities for Wilson students, staff and families.

We will start off March with our second trimester ROAR Celebration, which includes several indoor activities such as crafts, sports, reading, Makerspace and much more! Mr. McClintock will be advising the Science Fair on March 13th, 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the big gym at Wilson Elementary. We hope you can stop by and see all of the great projects that the students put together.

March 12 is also the start of MCA Assessments. The purpose of the MCA’s is to measure student achievement with regards to the Minnesota Academic Standards. Assessment results are used to inform curriculum decisions at the district, school, and classroom level. For additional information or translated documents, please visit the Minnesota Department of Education website at http://education.state.mn.us/mde/fam/tests/.

Lastly we continue to learn about PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) and the PBIS team will attend their third training in March. The focus on more positive, preventative and productive responses to student behavioral concerns remains our focus. A shared partnership with parents/guardians will significantly improve outcomes for students. Please reinforce to your child to show Respect, Ownership, (Positive/Helpful) Attitude and Responsibility. Your support is invaluable. Enjoy the remaining months of snow. My next letter should bring flowers, hopefully!

Sincerely,

Melodee Hoffner, Principal
