A new website and mobile app will be available in the very near future.
Schools Cannot Do It Alone is a new community education campaign designed to give everyone a better understanding of the importance of public education to the health and well being of the entire community. The video series is informative, entertaining, and inspiring. We know you will enjoy it.
There can be no doubt that we are living through a difficult time. But the need to prepare all children to thrive and prosper has never been more important. As the title of the new campaign suggests, we – the teachers, administrators, support staff, and Board – cannot succeed without your understanding, trust, and support.
Attached below is a link to the first video in the series. This twelve-minute clip provides a review of the challenges we face, old and new.
In the months to come, you will find that the overall message is that we all have a vested interest in increasing student success whether or not we have children in school.
To whom it may concern,
My name is Julissa Melendez and am currently a senior. I have just been accepted to hold, the title of a Page at our state legislature. The given position of being a Page requires strong-willingness, integrity, and lots of determination. As well, self-envision. This opportunity checked off everything on my list. It was related and beneficial to my career, I would work alongside experts in the politics field, and most importantly the skills and connections I would build along the way. It is a Page’s duty to: set up/take down meetings for our senators, deliver messages, and run errands. Be on the sidelines of our senators. This honorable position, gives us Pages the inside look on how our laws are created, and how the voices of our community are heard. Granted or not, but heard. I believe, I will truly succeed at this position, and let it be beneficial to my political science destiny. Anyone can do this job, but to have the mentality and skills are a must. If one is to be in my shoes; I highly advise to build as much connections one can. To have self-trust, and accept help from others. I believe this experience will change my perspective on our community needs, as well. And let it be that just as much as others, I seek change too. I will proudly be a Hispanic representative of Wilder School District.
Congratulations to our very own senior, Jolee Lopez. Jolee was awarded 2nd Team All- Conference Selection for the Western Idaho Conference and Senior All- Star team. Jolee is being recognized for her hard-work and determination. She led her team as number one in digs, attacks, serves, and ace’s per game. In a number of games demonstrated 100% serving accuracy and over 90% digs and attack rates. Not only her stats were recognized but also her dedication and passion for the game and her team. Jolee was given the position of captain by her teammates and coach for her knowledge and expertise for the game. During warm-ups in our practices, Jolee would pair up the underclassman to help them with their passing. Sitting on the bus to and from games, Jolee would be on her phone going over her previous games, learning from any mistakes to make herself a better player. On her off time she would watch videos of other teams and bring that knowledge to practice for the team. This dedicated time demonstrated those leadership qualities that made her captain and love for the game. We are so proud of our Wildcat!!!! Bring that fire and passion with you wherever life takes you. We will miss you next season, but we are so excited to see the person you will become.
