GREAT START

Wilson Middle School is off to a great start! We are so thankful for all of the students and families who have stopped in, either during open house or to register their children. We are excited to get to know each and every student here and how we can make their middle school years the very best experience.

Mrs. Clemen and Willie

Mrs. Clemen is Wilson's new facilitator - although she is no stranger to Wilson. She has been the computer science teacher here for several years. Mrs. Clemen is also the owner and handler for our therapy dog, Willie. Willie is entering his 2nd full year as a Wilson staff member. Both Mrs. Clemen and Willie are here to assist students during the day, be a friendly face in the halls, and bring a smile to students' faces.

Wilson Students grades 6-8 have the opportunity to audition for Star Elite, our school's show choir. Star Elite practices weekly outside of the school day, performs at concerts and community functions throughout the year, and competes in competitions in February and March. Contact Ms. Mead, vocal music director, with questions.


Wilson annually performs a stage musical. This year we proudly present an original work called "The Alice Files," a combination of Alice in Wonderland and the X Files. Ms. Kimberli Maloy is our theatre director and will lead our students to great heights. Our musical this year is in late October.
