Principal's Message 9-19-22


Happy Hispanic Heritage Month. Each year, We honor the contributions of American citizens whose ancestors come from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 to October 15.


Thank you to everyone who volunteered for carpool this week. Your presence was greatly appreciated. We welcome volunteers to assist with our morning carpool line on Wednesdays and Fridays, in addition to Friday afternoons. If you are interested in volunteering for 30 minutes please reach out to our  Wiley PTA. 


Military-Connected Families 


In an effort to ensure that the unique needs of military-connected students are met, state law requires that we collect information on military-connected students. The goal is to help accommodate these students by providing them with support and consistency when their parents are deployed, when they are transitioning between schools, and at other pivotal times during their academic career.  

If you are a military-connected family, please:

  • Download this attached fillable form.

  • Complete one form for each of your children.

  • Return to our school data manager, Sharon Barr, (  

The deadline is Nov. 11. You may also print and return a hard copy of the form to your child’s school if you prefer.
