Message from the Principal...

Hello Lions,


We had an amazing 1st day back!!!! It was so good to see everyone! We welcomed lots of new Lions into our school and are excited to get to know them.


As I reflected over the break, I was so proud of the work our students and teachers put in and I know they are going to blow the top off this semester.


There is so much to learn and each day is incredibly important. Thank you for getting them here and supporting the learning.


Thank you for entrusting us with your child,

Malinda Stewart

Lion's Den Donations

Our campus is excited to have the Lion's Den! This room is filled with fun activities and is earned as a reward by students. Students have various ways they can earn “den” time.


Our den is full of board games, arts/crafts, puzzles, books, foosball, air hockey, electronics, and more! We continue to add to our den. If you have new or gently used items, we are accepting donations. High request items are school appropriate video games, gaming systems, arcade games, board games, dry erase markers, comfy chairs, paint, paint brushes, fun lighting, books, etc. If you choose to donate, please drop the item/s at the front door and label them “Lion's Den.” We can’t wait for our students to enjoy!!

Counselor's Corner

We are really enjoying our R.O.A.R. Character Education Program! R.O.A.R. stands for Respect, Optimism, Acceptance and Responsibility! This year, we will have a new way to dive deep into our character education at Wilkinson. Each month, we will have a specific “focus” for the month that helps students to dig a little deeper into ways they can show Respect, Optimism, Acceptance and Responsibility.


January's Focus: Courage


Your students will discuss this concept during Guidance Lessons and during Morning Meetings this month. Thank you in advance for taking the time to discuss this with your students.
