Watkins Word

Parent Edition for Week of April 11-April 15


“In Wylie ISD we want more than smart kids. We want good kids. There is a sense of community pride that goes beyond the classroom, beyond our schools and even beyond the successes of the Wylie ISD. It truly envelops everything. We call it simply…“the Wylie Way.”

The Wylie Way is a movement in our schools that fosters ethical, responsible and caring young people through an emphasis on the values of our Wylie ISD community. It is built on the foundations of:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Kindness
  • Caring
  • Grit
  • Preparing kids for a prosperous life beyond high school

When we launched The Wylie Way as part of our character education program we wanted to recognize those individuals and groups that make a difference, not just for what they do, but for what they stand for and how they impact others. Since August 2012 we have presented The Wylie Way Award to deserving individuals and organizations who exemplify the Wylie Way.”

Spring Book Fair

It's time to step back in time and feel the grooviness of a good book in your hands and the hands of your children. Watkins Elementary Spring book fair is right around the corner and we want you to come volunteer to be a part of it.

The link below will be a great place to start and become a part of our amazing book fair.


All classes will attend the book fair on their regularly scheduled library day the week of April 25 - April 29.
