YSD Stories

  • There is nothing cavalier about our Wilson Cavaliers when it comes to reading!

    Posted by Aletha Thrush on 4/1/2022

    READ 180 students at Wilson Middle School scored top honors in the first annual YSD Middle School READ180 Student Application Award. 


    In a first semester contest between all YSD middle schools, Wilson students logged an impressive 93,888 total minutes on their student application, a computer program designed to increase students’ reading success. Students in grades 6-8 have been deeply engrossed in developing their reading comprehension, vocabulary, and writing skills. Their hard work was celebrated with their teachers, principals, and district administrators in an assembly on March 3rd, and this ambitious group of students are committed to bringing the trophy home to Wilson again in June. 


    Best of luck Wilson Readers!
