Wiley Gives Back

Our 4th annual Wiley Gives Back was a huge success! This was a culminating Take Action project led by Wiley 5th graders. Students cultivated empathy and were reminded that our daily actions help us to connect with and serve others within local, state and global communities.

  • Over 500 care kits were assembled for the Triangle area homeless
  • a van full of diapers, wipes and school supplies went to Refugee families
  • 25 boxes of books will be in classroom libraries damaged by the hurricanes
  • 10 boxes of school supplies replenished classrooms damaged by the hurricanes

Friday: Fun, Food, Families & Film!

On Friday, January 25, The Wiley Elementary Foundation, the Cecilia Rawlins Fund, and the PTA will jointly host a Movie Night at Wiley International Studies Magnet Elementary in Garner.

  • The event and popcorn will be FREE!
  • There will also be pay what you can pizza available.
  • Doors open at 6:00 PM, and the movie will start at 6:30 PM.
  • Grab a beach towel or a blanket and join us for a fun family night!

Q3 Languages and Electives

This week we launched our third quarter languages and electives. It was wonderful to see the smiling faces of our Kindergarteners attending their "own" language courses for the first time this year! Thank you to the entire Wiley team for building a brand new language and elective schedule in the middle of the year; you guys are AMAZING!

A quick shout out to our incredible Language and Elective team for all of their hard work, passion and dedication to our students and magnet program!
