Dear Parents and Students,

Another school year is behind us. Seems like it was just last week we welcomed you to our open house early August. We will be saying our goodbyes and best wishes to our 8th grade students as they venture out to high schools. This was a very busy year filled with many rewarding experiences. Returning fulltime to in-person after 2 years of COVID closures was memorable and challenging at the same time, we could not have done it alone.

Thank you parents for partnering with us to help provide the best educational services to students this year. Your dedication to their daily attendance and your support during the year paid off and the great majority of students are transitioning fully prepared to overcome next years’ educational challenges. We, the staff at Wilson, greatly appreciate you and your students!

Another great school year is behind us! Have a great summer!


Ernesto Araiza

Library Information

The last day for student checkout this year will be Friday, May 27th and all books will be due on June 6. Thanks for paying fines for any missing books from past years. Fines are paid to Mrs. Thomas at the registrar's window. If the full replacement cost isn't possible to be paid, all YSD libraries will accept a good, used copy of any lost or damaged book as payment for the fine. It's a WIN-WIN situation for us both! You win by paying the used book price, and the library wins by getting the lost book back on the shelf for others to read. Keep on reading all summer long with ebooks from the SORA app on the Destiny homepage. Just log in as a YSD google G Suite user, and by selecting the Yakima Valley Libraries, you have access to thousands of ebooks to keep up the reading habit all summer long!

Important Information from our School Nurse


If you have medication for your student please be sure to pick-up by the last day of school, Friday June 17th. If you miss the deadline to pick-up medications at Wilson Middle School you may go to the Health & Wellness Center, 331 N 1st Street. All of the medications will be taken to this facility for pick-up after June 17th.

Parents & Guardians,

Our Wilson Middle School Color Run Fundraiser has been in full effect since May 9th. Students have been doing an awesome job collecting donations from their relatives and family friends. All funds collected will go towards student expenses, like dances, field trips, new school equipment and other school activities. Continue encouraging your student to collect donations to be able to qualify for some amazing incentives! Last day to turn in any funds and to qualify for incentives will be Tuesday, June 7th! NO money will be accepted after this date! Our actual Color Run Event will take place on Thursday, June 9th during the last half of the school day. If you would like more information, please contact our ASB Secretary, Ms. Garcia at 573-2470.
