Wildlight Elementary School

Welcome Back!

It has been an absolutely fantastic start to the school year!! Our Wildlight Trailblazers have done a wonderful job getting acclimated to their new classrooms and we have seen a tremendous growth in their leadership capabilities. What a joy it is to see our Safety Patrol students leading the younger kiddos to their classes and greeting everyone who enters our doors! Way to go!

Celebrating Our Students’ Success

We started off the year celebrating those who made perfect scores on their Stanford-10 assessments last spring (K-2), as well as those who scored a level 5 on the FSA Reading and/or Math assessments (3rd-5th) with a neat medal and recognition at our class meetings. We also rewarded those who had made the most progress from their previous year's assessments with a nice treat. Fantastic job! Keep up the great work students!

Great American Fundraiser

We are off to a great start with our first fundraiser of the year through Great American. The students are working hard earning their way to the Xtreme Pogo Air Show by being a part of Team 100 (sold $100 worth of items) or Team 250 (sold $250 worth of items). They can gain VIP status to the show by entering in 10 emails into the fundraising website in addition to selling at least $100 worth of items (Team 250 automatically gains VIP status even without entering in emails). But wait, there's more!!! If we meet our school wide goal, ALL students will join us for the show!! :)

Check out our fundraising website by clicking the link below. Remember, all items can be purchased from the website using your VISA or debit card, and all items other than cold food items and cookie dough will be shipped directly to the purchaser's home if purchased online. Easy peasy!
