BINGO for Books

Wildlight students and their families had a great time playing BINGO and winning TONS of books at our first annual BINGO for Books event! Each family was also sent home with a "Reading Tool Kit" to assist them with practicing their reading skills and strategies at home with any book.

Character Book Dress Up Day and Parade

Celebrating Those Who Serve and Have Served Our Country

Our students honored our country's veterans at our annual Veterans Day Program on Nov. 9th. Wildlight is grateful for your service, past and present. We are truly the land of the free BECAUSE of the brave!

What's the Weather Going to be Like Today?

Our 5th grade students were paid a visit by Action News Jax's very own weatherman, Garrett Bedenbaugh, and the Storm Tracker. What a great way to pull together all that the students have learned about weather and the water cycle over the past few weeks. They enjoyed hearing about Mr. Bedenbaugh's career, and loved the Storm Tracker!!!

Full STEAM Ahead! Check out the awesome STEAM activities happening at Wildlight!!

The "Teachers of Tomorrow" Club is Spreading Kindness All Around!!
