From the Principal

WELCOME TO THE GARDENS!
 
On behalf of our faculty and staff, I want to welcome you to our school website and to the friendly and caring staff of education professionals here at Wilkinson Gardens Elementary. Our faculty and staff work hard to make Wilkinson Gardens a place where children love to come to school, where quality learning is our top priority, and where close relationships are maintained with our parents, other caregivers, and community.
 
This should prove to be an exciting and educationally rewarding school year. We look forward to combining our resources and talents into providing a quality instructional program.  We hope to afford every student a comprehensive and rigorous school curriculum in a safe and orderly environment. A key component in the success of our students is the support of care givers. I welcome any assistance that you may offer. Please feel free to communicate any concerns or suggestions that you may have.
 
I am extremely excited about the prospects for a rewarding and successful school year.  I hope this website will convey the excitement and pride that we feel in our school! We are encouraging every Wilkinson Gardens Wildcat to roar with enthusiasm and pride each day!!!
