Wiley Student Artists on Display

Congratulations to Nehemiyah, Ruth, Madeline M, Catie, and Aline for having your art selected to represent Wiley in the North Carolina State Fair Art Exhibit!! The art work is on display in the Kerr Scott Building during the NC State Fair, October 17-27.

Lost and Found

Please check the Lost and Found closet for missing clothes, books, hats, etc. The closet is located on the top floor in the 1923 building. Just remember to sign in to the office before heading up. You may consider writing your child's name on the tag of sweatshirts, jackets, and hats so clothing can be returned to the rightful owner. Thanks!

International Book Fair Starts Today!

The International Book Fair starts today! A few key items to note:

·         Your child will come home with a wish list in their folder with details on how / when to purchase

·         The fair is open late on Tuesday until 6:30 p.m. We’ll have two food trucks (Chirba Chirba Dumplings and Joe’s Ice cream) there to provide dinner and dessert options.

·         If you can’t make the fair, shop online at or in the store. Mention Wiley at checkout (or in the notes section) and Wiley will get 20% of your purchase!

We look forward to seeing you at the fair!

Stay Warm while Being Cool!

Classroom Cleanup a Success
Wiley Goes Green would like to thank all the parents and students who came to help clean classrooms on October 3rd. We had 56 volunteers participate in this event and cleaned 28 classrooms! This is a wonderful turnout. I have heard from one teacher that she was thrilled with how nice her classroom looked the next day.
