  • Incoming Middle School Students Experience Music Options

    Posted by Dr. Andie Webb on 5/22/2023

    As our elementary students prepare to move to middle school, exciting options await them in the music department. As part of a promotion for our middle school band, orchestra and choir, each building hosted a group of fifth grade students from their feeder school and shared instrument types, sounds and a small concert from each section. Our fifth grade students were very excited to travel to their next home and meet the staff in our amazing music departments!

    During the presentations, the music directors, counselors, principals and even Dr. Greene addressed incoming fifth graders and shared their welcome and enthusiasm for the new sixth graders. Thank you to our elementary and middle school administrators for supporting this visit and to our fifth grade and middle school music staff who made the events so successful! We look forward to hearing all the joyful sound's from our sixth graders next year.

  • 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!

    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!
