Welcome

Message from the Principal

Welcome back to an exciting new school year.  As most of you know, there are some big changes taking place at Wilson Middle School this year.

We will be introducing a new writing across the curriculum program called Generation Ready. Students will get the opportunity to deepen their skills and learn to integrate writing across the entire curriculum. More information will be sent home as the program gets moving, so please look for updates.

We are also looking forward to our first annual staff/student talent show, which we expect to happen in early spring. This is where students get to show off some of their hidden talents and express their creative side on stage.

The big renovation project will soon be starting. During the renovation, there will be some temporary classroom changes. Please know that all classroom relocations will be temporary and quality instruction will continue to be delivered as always.

There is a new uniform policy that will be implemented. The same uniform is in place as in previous years, which is a solid navy blue polo shirt and khaki pants. The change is that students will be permitted to wear any professionally created Wilson Middle School shirt that is or has been given out or sold by Wilson Middle School. An official polo shirt with the school logo, a crewneck sweatshirt, and a T-shirt will be available for purchase in the main office throughout the school year. These items are optional but will be considered as proper uniform if purchased (refer to uniform section of handbook).

There are many other exciting new learning experiences that will take place and will be shared as we progress through the school year.

I am looking forward to working with you and your children. Good luck and best wishes on a successful school year.

Sincerely,

Shawn McGuigan, M.Ed.
Principal
