Principal's Message


Welcome to the Wildwood Elementary web site. My name is Mark Hamre and I am principal of Wildwood Elementary! I hope you will find the information within this site helpful in learning more about our school.

The 2016-17 school year is going to be an exciting year as we begin our fourth year in our new building. Our academic focus will continue to be on literacy/composition, math, social studies and science/engineering. As a result of our recent language arts curriculum review we are excited to implement a balanced literacy approach using Benchmarks as a curriculum resource. We will also continue our emphasis with creating a community of learners through our approach with Responsive Classroom, the Toolbox Project, and C.A.R.E.S (Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy, Self-control).

The Wildwood staff and community are committed to a strong educational program for all children. We are extremely proud of the hard work and success demonstrated by our students!

Communication and teamwork between families and school are valued at Wildwood! We encourage all parents to subscribe to our weekly electronic announcements which can be done on the home page of our website. I feel Wildwood is a great place for children to receive a quality education, for parents to be involved in their children's school experience, and for staff to partner with families to meet the unique needs of our students.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call or stop in for a visit. We look forward to meeting and working with you as we embark on this journey together!
