Red Ribbon Week

Nov 3, 2011 We had a very exciting month in October. The last week of October is Red Ribbon Week, where schools all across the United States teach students about being healthy and the dangers of substance abuse. In SSL lessons, we talked about the dangers of alcohol, drugs and cigarettes. We also stressed the importance of taking medication correctly, which means only taking medicine that is prescribed for us and letting an adult administer the correct dose. READ MORE

5th Grade Research Reports

May 18, 2011 The 5th grade students in Mrs. Burton and Mr. Ruyle’s classes completed research projects this week about a famous person. The project began with choosing a person to research and then gathering information using books and the internet. The next step was to use the facts that were gathered to write a first draft of their essay. They used editing and proofreading skills to make their first draft ready for publishing. READ MORE

Thanks AT&T!

Dec 13, 2010 Seven of our students were chosen to participate in a special field trip to Shoe Carnival, which was funded by AT&T. These students traveled to Shoe Carnival to pick out a new pair of shoes. The students were very well behaved and appreciative. Back at Wilcox, our students wrote thank you notes to AT&T for this wonderful field trip. See our pictures of the students who attended the field trip, writing thank you notes, and a close up of their new shoes. Thanks AT&T!!
