2016-17 Back to School Parent Letter

August 15, 2016

July 29, 2016,

Greetings Parent(s)/Guardians and Scholars:

I hope you and your scholar are having a productive and relaxing summer filled with adventure.  In five weeks your scholar will be walking through the doors of Wilder Middle School as a new or returning scholar for the 2016-2017 school year.  From the first to the last day of the school year all faculty and staff will provide your scholars with an excellent educational experience.

During the 2015-2016 school year, we made tremendous progress towards our goal of attaining full accreditation.  Preliminary Spring 2016 SOL data shows that growth was recorded in four out of five of our content areas.  We continue to remain accredited in social studies, and we are 4.9 points away from meeting our accreditation target in the area of science.  Math, reading and writing also showed marginal growth this past school year.  As we will discuss when you return we have made tremendous growth over the past two years in three out of five of our content areas (see link for specific preliminary data).  These higher levels of performance and improved culture are an indication of our renewed commitment to student achievement and a reflection of the hard work of all staff members to reach each child.
