Wilson Hill Update-March 3rd thru 7th
Recently, I was able to experience a field trip with a group of our students. After spending some time with our students and seeing their excitement for this career, it reminded me how all professions require 21st Century Learning Skills. These skills are: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking,and Creativity. Our students have opportunities at school,within all classrooms, that allow each student to develop these 21st Century Learning Skills. At Wilson Hill we feel that developing these skills within our students will allow each individual to be productive members of society within their chosen career.

Please keep in mind the following for the week:
