The Youth Literature Festival, sponsored by the University of Illinois, brought a number of children’s authors to Urbana-Champaign. One author, Barb Rosenstock, visited with the students at Wiley and helped bring to life the story of of a camping trip historical figures John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt (yes, that Teddy Roosevelt) embarked on. Ms. Rosenstock had help from two Wiley fifth graders. The News-Gazette had a nice write-up on the event. You can read it here: Young fans provide children’s author’s best reward.

Wiley 5th grade students recently made a visit to Krannert Center, where they collaborated with members of The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Consilience Project, which is part of the University’s I-STEM Education Initiative. I-STEM published a great story about the visit and the students’ work with this group. The story can be found here: http://www.istem.illinois.edu/news/consilience.html

Kindergarten Connection at the Urbana Civic Center on April 8th was a success! We had 184 families attend this first step into kindergarten!
If you missed the Kindergarten Connection and your child will be entering Kindergarten at Wiley Elementary school this fall, you are encouraged to go to the school to begin the sign-up process.
At the school, you, the parent or legal guardian, will complete the registration forms, sign-up your student for an August kindergarten screening, and receive a handbook with information about Urbana’s kindergarten classes and how to ensure success for your child.
Each neighborhood elementary school has set aside time between now and the end of the school year (June 4th) for parents who missed Kindergarten Connection but still need to start the registration process. Dates and times for Wiley Elementary is listed below. Starting the process now will help you to avoid the long “New Student” lines at Centralized Registration on July 29th – July 31st.
Kindergarten Connection/registration times for Wiley Elementary school is:
