Daily Announcements

From the Principal……….


Dear Parents and Students:

      Welcome Back!  We are extremely excited about the opportunity to start a new school year with our returning students and those students new to the Wilder Family!  We welcome you all with open arms and open hearts.

        We want your child to achieve success on many different levels as well as develop into model students and good citizens.  Since you are a vital piece of the puzzle in the education process, we want to develop a partnership with you in support of your child.  The child who knows that his or her family is involved in and supports the school program will almost always have fewer problems in school and enjoy greater success. 

       Our staff is dedicated to quality teaching and quality learning each and every day.  We believe in fair and consistent discipline as well as having a safe learning environment.  In addition, we will strive to have kindness, common courtesy, good manners and respect as a foundation and a cornerstone of our daily activities at Wilder Elementary. 

      Communication is a key ingredient in the success of the school program.  Please share information that will enable us to better serve you as well as your child.  We do not want any resistance that will interfere with your child receiving a quality education.  Please connect with your child’s teachers, attend school events, and become an active participant in helping develop our greatest gifts.

      I wish this to be your best year of school and look forward to serving you.

Mr. David A. Wright, Principal
