Principal Welcome Message

I am extremely excited to welcome all our students, teachers, staff, PTA and families to the 2023-2024 school year at Wilcox Elementary School. Our staff and I are ready to help you and your children have a positive and wonderful educational experience. Our first day of school is Monday, August 14, 2023 from 7:45AM - 2:00PM. Our Transitional Kindergarten (TK) students (only) will start with minimum day schedule starting Monday, August 14th -Wednesday, August 30th of school with minimum days. Minimum day dismissal is at 12:45PM. TK students full day starts on Thursday, August 31st.


During the summer, our custodial and main office staff have been busy working on our maintenance projects and welcoming new families and students. Our summer school and after-school programs provided enrichment activities and intervention to our WIE, BVE, and PHE students. We are still accepting TK - 5th students for the 2023-2024 school. Our school district hosted In-person Enrollment Fairs on July 25th - July 27th for new student enrollment support https://bit.ly/3rJpaJU, if you were not able to attend the enrollment fair to enroll a new student we will gladly help you in the main office.


This school year all parents must update all contact information and emergency contact information via PowerSchool Parent Portal along with completing the Alternate Income Form and other school documents. To support everyone with the before the first day of school task, all documents needed with links are listed below in this newsletter.
