Relationships ~ Engagement ~ Growth

It is important to us to create a learning environment that is a collaborative partnership between staff, students, families and the community. At Wilson Middle School we value:
  • building positive relationships
  • providing engaging learning opportunities
  • ensuring the growth of all students

It is important that students demonstrate appropriate behavior that does not disrupt their learning or the learning of others. Warhawks are expected to:
  • demonstrate socially-acceptable behavior

  • respect others and their property

  • engage in learning opportunities provided within their classes

  • respect the rights of others

  • respond to the requests/redirection of Wilson staff

In order to support our students we have a comprehensive support system that includes:

  • teaching expectations
  • developing students' social/emotional/behavioral skills
  • collaborative problem-solving
  • opportunities to repair the harm & restore relationships
  • consequences and/or punishments

When students are disruptive in class, here are the steps we will take as a staff to ensure learning for all can continue:

  1. Staff will redirect the student in order to help them refocus.
  2. If the student does not respond appropriately to the staff member's redirect, the office will be called.
  3. A member of the office staff will do one of the following in order to support the student(s) and teacher: 1) stay in the classroom, 2) remove the student to help them refocus and allow the student to return, or 3) remove the student from the class and ask them to complete the day's work for that class in an alternative location.
  4. If a student is removed from class, a parent will be notified and the student may return to class once they have completed their work.
  5. In addition, the student will be expected to repair the harm done by their disruption to the learning environment.
  6. Administrators will request a parent meeting if a student has to be removed from class multiple times for disruptive behavior.

We appreciate your partnership and support in ensuring all students at Wilson are engaged and can learn at high levels.

We have a payment plan & multiple children discount as options to help make this an affordable experience. If cost is an issue, please email Coach Garbe (garber@mpsd.school).
