Wilson Elementary Gives Back while offering family fun!!

Wilson Elementary and Wilson PTA have teamed up to give back to students in need at their school this Christmas Season.  They are sponsoring the first ever “Wilson Tree of Giving”.    And they are inviting the community of Payson to come along.

“We usually all see or know someone in need during the Christmas season” say’s Jennie, a PTA member at Wilson “But with the sluggish economy, the need is greater than ever before”

Wilson 4th Grade Visits our State Capitol

The 4th grade students at Wilson Elementary got a special treat this year, a field trip to our State Capitol.  The field trip was arranged and hosted by our legislative representative Patrick Painter and was a fun educational and experience for the students, teachers and parent helpers who attended.  The children were able to learn the process of presenting a bill and passing laws while sitting in the seats of the House of Representatives!  Next was a tour of the capitol building where the kids learned the history of the building as well as changes made since the re-modeling of the capitol.

Veterans' Day at Wilson Elementary

Students at Wilson Elementary celebrated the service of our Veterans in many different ways on Veterans' Day. Second-grade students celebrated by making festive wreaths and talking about the important things Veterans have done to keep our country free.  Pictured are Brindyn Johnson, Soledad Vera, Ryan Penrod, and Kamdyn Penrod showing off their red, white and blue wreaths.
