On behalf of our faculty and staff, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to school year 2014-15. At Wilson Elementary School, we are excited to start the new school year serving our military families.The teachers and staff have contributed much time and effort in preparing their classrooms and common areas in order to provide an attractive and cheerful environment for our students. The staff's enthusiasm, caring attitudes and genuine concern for the welfare of the students is obvious.
While living in our unique Indianhead community, I strongly encourage parents to become actively involved in our school's programs and special activities. We need support from each of you. I suggest that you establish regular communication and involvement with your son's/daughter's teachers early in the school year. When you support the education process, your child will know that you value education. Your participation with the Parent/Teacher Organization and the Continuous School Improvement Team is strongly encouraged.
Let us all, parents, staff, community members and the military stakeholders, work together to produce the best educational experience for our students. I am looking forward to a great year!
