Weekly Bulletin May 2-6, 2016



Dear Wilson Teachers,

Thank you for all you do everyday in shaping the minds of our students at Woodrow Wilson Middle School. Your influence is greater than you imagine as students remember that day when the "light bulb" went on and they understood an important concept or the day you noticed they were not there usual self. Particularly as teachers of adolescents, you are to be honored this week and always for the important role your student's life each day. You make the difference. You are the teacher. You are the SUPERHEROS. You educate, innovate, inspire and encourage. Your influence extends far beyond the classroom walls and hallways. Most importantly, you are APPRECIATED!!
