Wiley Updates

Missing Eyeglasses? 
We have quite a few pairs of found eyeglasses looking for their owners. Please come in to see Ms. Vargo before Thursday if your child is missing their glasses. 

Until Our Paths Cross Again…
The Wiley family has made a lasting, positive impact on me as a professional and as a person. I cannot thank you enough. This really is an amazing village for the Wiley children. I hope this is 'see you later' instead of goodbye. My email will stay the same- please stay in touch, keep me updated with your children's amazing feats, and join me at Centennial for middle school! 

Don't forget, if you would like to provide input into what qualities you would like in the next principal please plan to attend the parent input session in the media center today, June 9th at 6pm, conducted by Wiley's area superintendent Rose Anne Gonzalez. 

Thank You from the Wiley PTA
The PTA would like to thank all of the volunteers who have done so much to make this year at Wiley a success. The success of PTA programs--from cultural arts to staff celebrations to tutoring to our multiple fundraisers depend on you as a group, and we can't thank you enough for your effort this year. Big milestones were the addition of a new fundraiser which resulted in almost $25,000 of new technology that will land in Wiley classrooms in the fall, the start of a clubs program, and a great variety of traditional PTA events that enrich the lives of our students. We'd especially like to thank our parents who are leaving Wiley as children move onto other schools for all they have done for the school over the years.
We look forward to seeing you all at the end of the summer at the back to school picnic. In the meantime, if you have any PTA-related questions over the summer or would like to volunteer to help with preparation for next year, reach out to or Teresa Jones (2014-2015 President) at Have a wonderful summer!
