Wiley PTA Meeting

Our last PTA meeting of the school year will be held virtually on Wednesday, 5/15, at 6pm. Click here to join via Google Meet. Thanks for being a part of our meetings this year! If you are not already a member of Wiley PTA, please consider joining!


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

Thank you to everyon who showed  up for yesterday’s International Festival. Our students did amazing and our teachers worked really hard to make  sure that they  were ready to shine.


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.
