A note from Mrs. Solomon

A HUGE thank you to the Wild Rose PTO, parent and student community! You really know how to show your appreciation to the Wild Rose in-person and remote staff! We are so grateful for all the thought and donations that went into making this a memorable week for our staff. I particularly LOVE the written gold medals they are a joy to read. A special thank you to Mrs. Siegendorf for all of the time and thoughtfulness put in to make this a great week of appreciation!

Wild Rose Learning Center Dedication

I am honored to share that on Wednesday, May 19th we will celebrate the work, career and dedication of Dr. Robert Allison. We will be dedicating the Wild Rose LRC to Dr. Allison. We have already begun to transform the outside of the LRC to celebrate Wild Rose with a mural painted by D303 art teachers Lauren Kruse and Rebecca Hubs. We will be hosting this dedication outside at the front of the building. We can begin to gather at 5:30 pm and the dedication ceremony will take place at approximately 6:00 pm. We hope you will come join us in this celebration. Others outside of the Wild Rose Community will also be invited as Dr. Allison participated in many positions across the district during his time in D303.
