Recently the 4th grade classes spent some time learning a Virginia reel dance (an English folk dance) with Mrs. Holly Markgraf-Mayne. The students really enjoyed it and had a good time learning about that piece of history! Thanks once again to Ms. Holly for coming to help our students learn to enjoy dance and movement in all its forms.

When you think of someone at our school who is always positive, energetic, and greets you with a smile, you definitely think of Shamayne Cram. Shamayne has worked in Nebo School District for 13 years, first as a technician and then as a 1st grade teacher at Wilson Elementary for 7 years. She is always bubbly and upbeat. She is willing to take on extra tasks and assignments for our school. She has been a Nebo Teacher representative and is currently over charitable donations at our school. She is adventurous and an avid skier.

Here are some great things her colleagues have to say:

Wilson School Spell-Off Winners

Last Thursday the top three winners from the 3rd-4th grade spelling bee and the top three winners from the 5th-6th grade spelling bee matched off in an overall competition. They were required to spell uncommon, difficult words, which made for an exciting event to watch. While all the students did a tremendous job, Savannah Stinson of 5th grade came out as the first place winner, with Luke Dalley of 6th grade in second place. Good job to all who participated in our spelling bees this year, and thank you to the PTA for organizing it all! Go Lions!
