WILSON MIDDLE SCHOOL
NEWSLETTER, APRIL 2022
We are nearing the end of another school year. Your 8th grade student should now be registered for high school of their choice. Sixth and seventh graders are gearing up for the next grade level and we are currently working on their schedules as well. Please help your student have a strong end to their year by encouraging them to keep up with their work and follow the plan agreed upon at conferences. Our after school homework center is a great resource for students who may have trouble completing their work at home. Please call us if you would like more information about this program.
The week of April 18th-April 22nd is designated to celebrate and honor our school secretaries. Our secretaries are relied upon to make a welcoming first contact when you arrive at our school. They strive to provide “heroic” service to all our school visitors. Wilson proudly honors and appreciates our secretaries Mrs. Espinoza, Ms. Garcia, Mrs. Thomas, Mrs. Rankin, Mrs. Thorn-Heang. These ladies are truly our heroes in the front office. Help us celebrate them the next time you are in our school.
📆 Important Dates
6th Grade Life Science is very excited about spring time. Having completed the first three kingdoms this year, and a unit on ecosystems, we will be diving into the plant kingdom. We will be learning about plant processes like photosynthesis, transpiration, and respiration. We are excited to do fun labs both in class and outside in our garden center. Students are excited to grow many things this year and we are too. Along with our flower dissection, we will be learning about reproduction and the life cycles of many different types of plants.
OVERDUE LIBRARY BOOKS
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
MAKERSPACE: Meets in the library after school on Fridays from 2:30 to 3:30 PM. Students attending can explore a variety of arts and crafts like knitting, crocheting, drawing, clay sculpting, painting, a variety of games, and even an electronic piano keyboard! We will keep attendance and you can call Mrs. Madrinich at 573-2422 if you want to check on whether your child is with us. We would love if any adult with a skill or craft they would like to share could come and help us learn what you know. You will need to complete a volunteer form in the office, so please contact Mrs. Madrinich at 573-2422 or leave a message if you are interested in helping out.
