Welcome Wilkerson Wildcats!
I am truly honored and excited to have been selected as the new Principal at Wilkerson School. I am new at Wilkerson but not new to El Monte City School District. As a product, student, teacher, and now Principal of this great district, I am committed to make this school year a successful experience for every student.
Wilkerson School consist of a family of teachers, administrators, parents, students and community members who all share the same mission—to create through education, proficient, confident, motivated individuals who will contribute to society as responsible citizens. Our teachers and staff are committed to doing all it takes to ensure that all our students achieve academic success. Our goal at Wilkerson School is to maintain a tradition of academic excellence in a safe and orderly learning environment. We believe each child is unique and deserving of both a rigorous and a supportive school environment. Wilkerson also offers the opportunity of the after school program, (Aspire) which offers enrichment and remediation services.
At Wilkerson, we believe that family support is a vital part of the educational process. We respect and encourage working together as partners between school and home. We welcome the parent participation and encourage you to contact our Community Liaison, Irma Centeno, for more information about how to volunteer and get information on different types of parent trainings we offer at Wilkerson School. Wilkerson School offers opportunities and invites you to join us at the various events throughout the school year. My hope is have parents support by joining one of organizations such as our School Site Council (SSC) or our English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC). Parents have the opportunity to be involved in bringing new ideas and programs to our school.
We will continue with WWW (Wilkerson Wildcat Winners) Day in which monthly we honor those students to participate at the assembly by their excellent behavior throughout the month. We will honor students throughout the school year recognizing their efforts in the areas of perfect attendance, Student’s of the Month, Reading Achievement based on the SRI growth and celebrate students when they meet their AR (Accelerated Reading) word goal.
Wilkerson has the greatest students, teachers and staff. Again, we welcome you to visit our campus to share and celebrate our continuing successes throughout the 2016-2017 school year!
