Wylie Way Award Nominations

If you could choose the values you would like for your child to possess as an adult, what would that list include? If you chose the values you would like for folks in your community to show you, would they be the same? Five years ago, community leaders created this list with a goal that Wylie ISD would do their best to raise future citizens to possess these values and raise our kids, the Wylie Way.

Below is the list of those values:

  • Caring and Giving
  • Respect and Responsibility
  • Grit and Preparation for the Future
  • Gratitude and Celebration

Here is your chance to recognize someone making a positive difference, the Wylie Way! We need lots of folks to consider.

Students may bring cell phones to school; however, they are to be turned off during the instructional part of the day unless the teachers asks that they be used to support student learning and instruction. Students should not be placing calls, receiving texts or calls, texting during the school day unless asked to do so by an adult in the building. If your child is ill, he or she is to report to the clinic and Nurse Melissa will call parents accordingly.
