Happy Monday, Wilson Team!
On another note, I wanted to let you know how exciting it has been hearing about the fantastic learning that has been happening in your classrooms! I have been a little "tied up" with a couple of kiddos lately, so it has been wonderful hearing about the powerful lessons I have been unable to see in action! Please keep the good news coming as we have 40 days to make a difference in the lives of our kiddos!
Keep up the phenomenal job!
Here are a couple of reminders for this week:
- Minimum Day, Wednesday, 4/13 @ 2:00 PM
- Flag Assembly for 3rd grade, Thursday, 4/14 (Beginning @ 9:00 AM)

The EdTech Baton Visited Wilson
Congratulations, Laurie, as she was tossed the Edtech Baton last week. This event made it possible for her to share with the world how she has implemented technology in her classroom!
