Connections Wall
Two components of the strategic plan at Wildwood Elementary School are to build relationships and a sense of belonging. In order to build a sense of belonging we feel that it is important to get to know each other as the Wildwood School Family. We know that a sense of belonging is a key element in our building blocks to building learner agency. At Wildwood, we have a “Connections Wall” at the front of our school with a new theme each month. During the month of November, in honor of our veterans and service members, we've invited students and staff to share photos and information about the veterans and service members in their families. The Connections Wall has created a space for students and classes to stop by, have conversations, and often, the conversation goes deeper in the classroom.

Interactive Science Notebooks
Each year our first-grade students at Wildwood Elementary School study Meal Worms in their insect science unit. Students care and observe their Meal Worms and traditionally the lesson has been via paper and pencil. This year because each of our Wildwood students received an iPad through the district’s Device for Every Learner program, students kept a digital scientific notebook through the Seesaw app. Students used their iPads to add photos, voice recordings, and text labels. The engaging notebooks, allow our teachers to quickly assess their students’ learning. Teachers can check students’ work and give feedback to adjust their work as needed. Using the SeeSaw app also allows families to stay connected with their child’s learning because families can view the scientific notebooks via the parent component of the app.

Class Writes Biography About Principal

Erika Anderson, a second-grade teacher at Wildwood Elementary School wanted her students to get a deeper understanding of biographies so they decided to write one as a class! The class decided to write a biography about Principal Briske and took turns interviewing him and writing sections of the biography. The book includes stories about his family, military service, and hobbies. The stories were all assembled into a printed book and given to Mr. Briske. You can click here to view Google Slides with the pages of the book!

Our School
 
At Wildwood Elementary School, we honor the whole child and teach future-ready skills of inspiring curiosity, embracing change, and turning ideas into action. Our talented teachers and staff members work with students in small class sizes and nurture a culture of excellence that has become the expectation and norm. Our students learn social-emotional skills alongside academic core areas in order to gain the foundation for academic success. In addition, they have the opportunity to engage in learning with specialists in gym, art, media, music, and STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) classes. Our elementary school is surrounded by green space and our students enjoy recess at our natural playground and attend classes in our outdoor classroom. We have an engaged and supportive parent community who volunteers and supports the school with academic opportunities and tools. Our District is a leader in engineering and science and we value academic areas that will spark curiosity, fuel creativity, and instill a lifelong passion for innovation in our students.
