Message from the Principal

Welcome Students and Parents,

WILSON is a special place! We are fortunate to have various backgrounds of race, gender, and heritage attending our school. Wilson maintains a long history of academic success for its children due to a dedicated staff, our community stakeholders and a close relationship with families of the children we serve.

As educators and parents, our challenge is to help all students view school as an unlimited opportunity for achievement. Together, we can enable our children to reach for and attain success.

As a parent of a daughter and son, I understand the stress of being a parent. My commitment to you as a parent is to work as partners in educating your child. With your help, we will create new and varied experiences for our students. As parents, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. We are dedicated to student success and hope that you will take every opportunity to become part of your child’s education and an active member of our Wilson family.

Students, plan now to make a difference in our school. Study to the best of your ability and prepare yourselves wisely for your future. Think about your career goals and remain focused on them, as you further understand the importance of your education. A student’s role in education is to be an active participant, rather than a passive participant.It is also very important to read ahead of your teacher and participate in class activities.

I am committed to a shared and collegial leadership in our school, where all grow professionally and learn to view themselves as a member of a team working toward the same goal: a “GREAT” school.

Please take the opportunity to read the information in the student handbook carefully with your child. It is important that
your child has a clear understanding of what our expectations for him/her are while attending Wilson.

My door is always open to all and I hope that you stop by even for a quick hello. Should you have any questions or concerns you can reach me anytime at sressler@philasd.org or by phone at 215-400-3190

Stefanie Ressler, Principal
