Dear Wilson School Families,


Welcome to Wilson Elementary School. We are so glad you are visiting our web site, and we hope it will help you get to know our school.

With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, dedicated teachers, and a rich tapestry of cultures representative of our community, Wilson School is a wonderful place to teach and to learn.

"Our mission is to use compassion and motivation to challenge students to achieve excellence. Together we can help each student to reach their maximum potential." At Wilson School we pride ourselves on providing students with a nurturing environment that promotes lifelong learning. Our school community promotes positive development for all students academically and socio-emotionally by actively collaborating with stakeholders to create an equitable educational environment. We strive to encourage student achievement through positive behavior intervention strategies. Our school community inspires students to practice respect and skills including character education, social emotional learning and leadership. Always remember, at Wilson School our Panthers have "P.A.W.S". - Positive, Accountable, Well-Behaved, and Scholarly. A bright future starts here!

In the Lodi community we believe in leading by example. When parents attend school functions, they demonstrate to their children that they value school and education. We provide a variety of events that families can get involved in such as Back-to-School Night, parent/teacher conferences, and attending PTO Zoom meetings. Click on our PTO page to see how you can get involved today!

Best Regards,

Dr. Christie A. Vanderhook, Principal
