The Elementary State Chess Championship will be held at BYU this year. On March 18, young chess players from all over the state of Utah will join together to challenge each other. Several hundred players are expected from nearly one hundred schools. Dozens will bring home trophies, after playing six games with others in their own grade. Registration is open to all K-6 students--no qualifying meet is required. To register, go to utahchess.com and click on Tournaments.
We're MAD about reading here at Wilson! Our version of March Madness starts tomorrow, March 1st, and it's a reading competition! From March 1-28, track the minutes you read at home and turn them in to earn points for your team! One point will be awarded for every 10 minutes you read! Here are the teams:
Students (all 460 at Wilson): Turn in your reading minutes to your teacher or into the student box at the office.
Recently, our very own Valerie Massey, Skills coach here at Wilson, received an award for her excellence in working with our students and helping them succeed. Mrs. Massey is a valuable part of our faculty, and we are grateful to have her! Congratulations, Mrs. Massey!
