Congratulations to


Wilder's 2014-2015
Teacher of the Year!

From the Principal……….

      As we move into the 4th quarter and put March in the books, we are making preparations for our final push to PASS testing in May. We are expecting great effort and passion by our teachers and staff to drive classroom instruction over the next several weeks at Wilder Elementary. It should be everyone’s desire to encourage student academic growth through drill and practice that supports classroom instruction. If we truly view ourselves as the best elementary school, we have to put in the time and hard work.  Please continue to work with your child at home and continue doing activities connected to learning. With all of us working to better children, our boundaries for success have no limits.
       As I have stated on our daily morning show, you don’t slow down at the finish line. Our school year in elementary school maybe coming to a close, but elementary school is simply a building block or step in the next phase of education. We must maintain a focus and driving spirit over the next several weeks for the good of your child in preparation for the next grade and for future challenges. We ask that you encourage your child to be on their best behavior and to stay focused as the school calendar comes to a close. 
      Make plans to join us for Community Day at Wilder on May 3rd from 8-12. We will be working on several school improvement projects that will enhance the aesthetics of Wilder as well as promote educational opportunities for children.  Stay tuned for more information as we approach May 3rd.
        Thank you for your continued support and remember that Thunderbirds SOAR!!

Mr. David Wright, Principal
