Spring Book Fair


Wiley PTA has partnered with Scholastic for our annual Spring Book Fair, which will be held in the Media Center from Monday - Friday, 4/22 - 4/26. It takes many helping hands to make the Book Fair run smoothly, so please consider signing up for a volunteer slot here.


Wiley PTA is immensely proud of our Book Fairy program, which ensures that every student who desires a new book at the Book Fair receives one. Through this initiative, we distribute Book Fairy tickets to nearly 100 Wiley students at each Book Fair. The success of this program is due entirely to the generous donations from our Wiley community. Help us nurture lifetime readers by donating to the Book Fairy program!


International Night


Our annual International Night will be held on Thursday, 4/25 at 5pm on the Wiley soccer field. Enjoy performances by our foreign language classes, music groups, and two incredible community performance groups, Elite Fire Taekwondo and St. Mary’s SuperSonic Dance Crew. Dang Good Dogs, Poblano’s Tacos, Kona Ice, and pay-what-you-can pizza will be available. Volunteers are needed throughout the event. Please sign up here.

Lost and Found


Items that have been in the Lost and Found since 3/22 will be donated next Friday, 4/26. Please check out the current Lost and Found inventory. You may claim your item(s) in the Lost and Found Room in the cafeteria.


Dreambox Usage


Students are expected to complete at least 5 lessons a week in Dreambox. A Harvard University study has shown that just 60 minutes of DreamBox lessons per week can fast-track your students up to two grade levels in a year. We recommend that students complete five or more lessons per week with DreamBox Learning because students who complete five lessons each week show more math growth than those who complete fewer lessons. One lesson takes about 15 minutes. Dreambox is adaptive and constantly responding to the skills and understanding of your child. Having your child complete at least one Dreambox lesson a week can help your child’s teacher better understand their need, extend their learning, and/or address learning gaps.
