  • Best-selling Author, Marissa Meyer, is Visiting Wilson Students

    Posted by Ari Vazquez on 1/18/2023

    Wilson Middle School students will get the chance of a lifetime to meet and learn from a best-selling Washington State author from Tacoma, Marissa Meyer, in March!  Marissa Meyer is celebrating the ten year anniversary of her Lunar Chronicles series, beginning with the first novel Cinder. Meyer writes science fiction fantasy novels based on fairy tales.  She donated 30 copies of Cinder for Wilson students to read prior to her coming to visit. A small select number of students will be specially chosen to meet with Meyer in a group setting to get copies of her books signed and to ask more personal questions about what it's like to be a famous author!

  • 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!
