Dear Wilson Families,

I applaud you for a job well done getting through this pandemic school year! I hope this is a once in a lifetime experience! I still believe that you as parents had the hardest job during this time. Not only did you have to do your parent job, many of you had to be a student monitor, tutor, teacher, counselor, etc. to your home responsibilities. I could not be more grateful for your partnership.

As we draw closer to the end of this school year, I am encouraged by the plan to reopen fully in the fall. As a school, we are excited with the idea to return to normal school experiences for students next August. We know we have a tough challenge ahead of us, to close the learning gaps for those students most impacted by this limited year. Please take advantage of the student summer learning opportunities as much as possible. I know our students and you are up for the challenge and together we will not only close the gap, but we will ready student to be successful and graduation ready at the end of their high school years.

Please take time to enjoy the summer and I hope you also plan to close the “creating long lasting memories” gap. Fall will be upon us sooner than we expect. Start looking for communication from our school in early August regarding the new school year. Also, check our school website for updates and new information. You are always welcomed to call or e-mail me if you have a need.

We are thankful and privileged to have to have been an education partner with you this year.


Mr. Araiza

WILSON MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS have access to select ebooks through the Sora/Overdrive application, YSD and the YVRL beginning now through the end of August. Every title selected in the SWEET READS PROGRAM is a multiple user ebook. That means students can read with as many friends that want to read the same book! HAPPY SUMMER READING!

If your student(s) have ALL OF THEIR BOOKS TURNED IN AND FINES PAID, THEY CAN TAKE HOME THREE BOOKS TO READ OVER THE SUMMER VACATION! Remember, if you can find a GOOD, USED COPY of a lost or damaged title, the fine to replace the book is forgiven. It must be the same title and in good shape to circulate in place of paying the full cost to purchase the book new. MORE HAPPY SUMMER READING!

Attention Parents & Students!!

The end of the school year is right around the corner!! We are asking that you cover any fees & fines that you owe to your child’s school. Fees & fines are applied if a student looses or damages any books, school materials, sports equipment, band instruments or has not payed for his/her agenda. Parents, with 8th graders moving on to the high school and graduation around the corner we ask that you cover any fines that your student might have. Unfortunately if fees are not payed for they do follow your student & the school can hold any records, report cards, diplomas etc., please be sure to pay by the end of the school year. If you have any questions about any fees & fines please contact our Registrar, Angela Thomas at 573-2406.


We would like to thank our Wilson Middle School ASB/Leadership for all of the hard work they have done through out this very challenging year! Due to the circumstances coordinating fun ASB activities was quite a challenge but the students did not give up! They worked very hard and brainstormed great ideas to make this a fun year for all of our Wilson Student Body!
