WRAL Teacher of the Week
Please join us in recognizing Mrs. Dianne Jones as this week's WRAL Teacher of the Week! Reporter Gerald Owens surprised Mrs. Jones this morning as she taught writing. She will be featured on air Wednesday on the hour from 5:00 am to 8:00 am and again at 5:00pm. As you know Mrs. Jones is Wiley's Teacher of the Year and a semi-finalist for the WCPSS Teacher of the Year award. We are proud she calls Wiley home!

Before and After School Safety and Grounds Maintenance
To maintain safe play on campus before and after school hours we need your help in the following:

*No dogs are allowed on campus during, before, or after school.
*Trees and plants are planted on our campus for many special reasons. Help them remain so by expecting your child to follow the Savannah Garden expectations (posted at the garden), to not pull on any plants or trees, and to not climb on trees.
*Please make sure your children are in your eye sight. We have had instances of injuries, dog bites, strangers, and accidental property damage during after dismissal play. We do not want any of this to affect you or your children.
*Please refrain from using the 3-5 playground after school. The YMCA is contractually responsible for that space while their program uses it. They cannot have non-YMCA students on the playground with their program.

Your support in safety and supervision matters tremendously in preserving the ability to maintain a child friendly space. This is a huge help to the entire Wiley community, so thank you in advance for meeting the needs of the community while here.

We'll See You Tuesday Night!
Science/Curriculum Night is tomorrow night. If you are willing to brave this odd March weather, the front lawn is open for picnics from 5-6. We will all meet in the media center from 6-6:30 for a brief overview of the new curriculum for all students. From 6:30 to 7:30, all families will head to all classrooms and enjoy family friendly, hands-on activities.
