Principal's Message!

Dear Wilson Focus Families and Friends,

The seats may be empty at school, but our hearts are full with thoughts of you!

We are navigating new waters and know some of us may be facing the challenges that this situation may be bringing our way. We are hopeful that with the arrival of spring, you are each finding JOY! This unprecedented time has also given many of us more time to have dinner together, more time for conversations, more time to play games together, and lots of time for just hanging out together. My hope is we all find JOY in the little things each day.

WILSON FOCUS teachers are all working hard to provide learning opportunities for our students. We would love to see every student engaging through eLearning if possible. Our amazing teachers are available each day to connect with your child. We miss our students and our teachers would love to hear from their students.

Our last day will be June 12th. Our Spring Break is from May 18th through May 22. Teachers will resume eLearning activities beginning Tuesday, May 26th. Those learning opportunities will be available to you on Friday, May 15th, prior to break, for the week of May 26th.

It is our hope that we will end this year by finding meaning in our time apart. We know we will have greater appreciation for learning and each other when we are together again.

In the meantime, take care of yourselves and each other.

Above all, find JOY!

Mrs. Jacobs
