    Wilton: Leadership Day
    Wilton Elementary School celebrated their 5th annual Leadership Day today, April 26th! Wilton is a Stephen Covey “Leader in Me” school and has achieved Lighthouse certification. The event was attended by family and community members. It was led by their Student Lighthouse Team and included special performances by Wilton’s Show Choir, a Family Feud game with the Student Lighthouse Team and special presentations by a speaker from each grade level. Attendees were also invited to visit classrooms as students got to demonstrate their leadership skills in the classroom. Guests could also visit the media center where students shared about all the different extracurricular opportunities at Wilton such as Show Choir, Student Lighthouse Team, Girls on the Run, Clubs, PAW Patrol, Spelling Bee, Battle of the Books, and CLAWS. Guests then met back in the gym for the grand finale in which all students in the school came together to sing for their guests. The event was enjoyed by all and Wilton greatly appreciates all the parent and community support!

  • Students Honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
    Students Honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
    While learning watercolor painting techniques, each student was given a piece of a larger image to paint using their new skills. The students realized that each piece belonged to a larger whole, but had to wait until all pieces were painted and unified to see the solution. When those painted squares came together from diverse hands, the students saw how their efforts came together to honor Martin Luther King Jr., the most important voice of the American civil rights movement, which worked for equal rights for all.
