REFLECTIONS ART

The PTA Reflections program encourages students across the nation to explore their creativity. Wylie students were invited to create and submit works of art based on this year's theme - Let Your Imagination Fly. Submissions were judged by professionals who selected the art that reflected this year's theme while also exemplifying creativity and technical skill. All entries selected for the council level are on display at the Smith Library through Thursday, January 7th.

Story Time is Back Starting January 12th!

Wagging Tales Tuesdays 3:30-4:15pm

You read. We'll listen.

Tickets are free and required - pick them up beginning at 2:00 pm at the Children's Desk on the day of the program. Abby and Mason follow the W.I.S.D. school calendar, so if school is out, there is no Wagging Tales that day.
