Welcome Back Message from Natalie Birch, Principal

    Principal Birch, Dean McKeon, and Wilson Students September 9, 2020

    Dear Wilson Families,

    Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year! I hope that you have had a healthy and safe summer with your friends and family. I have missed the Wilson students and families.

    The Wilson team has been hard at work preparing for this school year.  While I recognize that we are opening school under different circumstances this year, I want to assure you that you can expect the same high quality instruction and commitment that you have experienced over the years at Wilson. 

    Our school mission remains the same:

    To give every student opportunities to learn in an academically challenging, safe, equitable and nurturing school environment.  We pledge to value parents, caregivers and families as partners in educating our students to learn, live and lead in the 21st century and beyond.

    As communicated recently within our district’s reopening plan, the district will be launching the new school year with a six-week period of full remote instruction, through October 16th. Please visit the district website at Christinak12.org/reopening to review the full reopening plan.

    Principal Birch, Dean McKeon, Teacher Montanez, and Wilson students HOME WORKSPACE
    The following are suggested ideas for creating a space conducive to learning within your home:

    • Establish a quiet place designated for the school day
    • Gather supplies such as paper and pencils and store them at the workspace
    • Make sure your child’s device is fully charged and that you have the charger available
    • Make sure that your child gets enough sleep each night
    • Make sure your child has a nutritious breakfast

    If your contact information has changed, please email our Administrative Secretary, Joyce Justison at joyce.justison@christina.k12.de.us.  The primary method of communicating school information and news to families will be through Parent Link emails and phone calls.  These communications are typically sent on Friday evenings.
