The 250-voice Wilson Choir will perform at 6:30 pm, directed by Dr. Shapiro and Mrs. McAnally. In addition to developing their performance skills, our student musicians have been very busy learning to read and write music notation, create their own compositions, analyze and describe what they hear, and connect their learning to other subject areas. We are very proud of their achievements! Please join us for this free performance on January 31, 2013.
WILSON MIDDLE SCHOOL PROCLAIMS ‘WHIRLED PEACE”
Peace needs to be more than just a word. On September 21st, Woodrow Wilson Middle School took part in Pinwheels for Peace, an international art and literacy project, by ‘planting’ pinwheels with messages of peace in their school park.
Pinwheels for Peace is an art installation project that began in 2005 as a way for students to express their feelings about personal and world events. The movement has spread worldwide to now include over four million pinwheels in 3,500 locations in countries on every continent.
Art teacher, Janice Hill, sponsored the project this year among students in her classes at Wilson. The sixth through eighth graders created pinwheels and wrote their thoughts about peace and war, tolerance, and living in harmony with others on one side. On the opposite side of the pinwheels, students drew colorful designs, visually expressing their thoughts, experiences, and feelings. Students then assembled their pinwheels and displayed them on International Peace Day, September 21st, in the school’s campus park for all to see and imagine....”Whirled Peace”.

Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Staff,
It is a privilege to be your principal. WILSON is a special place! We are fortunate to have various backgrounds of race, gender and heritage attending our school. Wilson maintains a long history of academic success for its children due to a dedicated staff, our community stakeholders and a close relationship with families of the children we serve. As educators and parents our challenge is to help all students view school as an unlimited opportunity for achievement. Together, we can enable our children to reach for and to attain success.
As a parent of an eighteen year old daughter and a twenty-two year old son, I understand the stress of being a parent. My commitment to you as a parent is to work as partners in educating your child. With your help we will create new and varied experiences for our students. As parents you are your child's first and most important teacher. We are dedicated to student success and hope that you will take every opportunity to become part of your child's education and an active member of our Wilson family.
Students, plan now to make a difference in our school. Study to the best of your ability and prepare yourselves wisely for your future. Think about your career goals and remain focused on them, as you further understand the importance of your education. A student’s role in education is to be active participants rather than passive. It is also very important to read ahead of your teacher and participate in class activities.
I look forward to helping the Wilson staff grow professionally as we work together to serve our children. I am committed to a shared and collegial leadership in our school, where all grow professionally and learn to view themselves as a member of a team working toward the same goal: a better school"
In closing, my door is always open to all and I hope that you stop by even for a quick hello. Should you have any questions or concerns you can reach me any time at email@example.com or by phone at 215.728.5015.
With warmest regards,
Are You READY???

Wilson is a Litter Free School
From September to June, section 722 at Woodrow Wilson Middle School researched recycling and hosted events to teach their peers about the importance of respecting our environment. In December, the section hosted three locker clean-outs - one for each grade . In May the students conducted a recycling fair in the lunchroom. The fair consisted of educational games and centers for students to learn how to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Throughout the year, students collected tee-shirts and made bags along with collecting soda can tabs for bracelets and empty Capri-Sun pouches for pencil cases. Section 722 also hosted an Earth Day event in April in which the International Baccalaureate program cleaned up the campus park and planted flowers. On May 31st, a representative from Keep Philadelphia Beautiful proclaimed the school a Litter Free School. Congratulations to Mrs. Lucera and her class.
WOODROW WILSON MIDDLE SCHOOL BECOMES A INTERNATIONAL BACCALUARETE WORLD SCHOOL
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) was founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1968 as a non-profit educational foundation.
A group of talented, forward-thinking teachers at the International School of Geneva, with assistance from several other international schools, created the IB Diploma Programme. What started life as a single programme for internationally mobile students preparing for university, has today grown into three programmes for students aged 3 to 19.
The programme in the early days consisted of a common pre-university curriculum and a common set of external examinations for students in schools throughout the world, seeking to provide students with a truly international education. Although the first IB schools were predominantly private international schools, they included a very small number of private national institutions and schools belonging to state education departments. This has changed over the years and today over half of all IB World Schools (authorized to offer one or more of our programmes) are state schools.
Although the first IB schools were predominantly private international schools, today over half of all IB World Schools are state schools.
Carrying forward the ideals and dreams of the IB founders, the organization exists to provide high quality education for a better world, as expressed in our mission statement.
