Who do our kids turn to when things are not right? Who is always there to
help through the tough situations that happen in some students lives? Who
is always willing to help any teacher in any way she can? Vicki Lyons -
that's who!

Sending a note to a loved one in heaven on a balloon, helping a child know
how to make friends, being DoSo the dolphin or helping overcome a child's
fears are just a few of the things that our school counselor does.

Wilson Elementary students have been going crazy for reading this year! Wednesday, January 27 was “Crazy for Reading” day, and students were able to wear crazy hair to school, and had a read-a-thon for part of the day. Students had been working hard to meet reading goals for term 2 as well. Students who reached their term 2 reading goal were able to attend an assembly where American Beauty Academy students gave eight Wilson teachers, and Principal Ron Penrod a crazy hairstyle. Fun was had by all. Keep up the reading Wilson Lions!

On Friday, January 22, 2010 Dr. Merle Keller came to Wilson Elementary School and presented the sixth-grade students with dictionaries. “I want you students to have the brightest possible future.” Dr. Keller said. When asked about the dictionaries, sixth–grade student Brittney Nielsen said, “I think that they are great! I found that there is a really long word that takes up most of a page.” From the sixth-grade teachers and students, THANK YOU Dr. Keller! Dr. Keller is a Payson native, and practices primarily out of Canyon View Medical Group’s new Santaquin office.
