My school of choice is Wilson elementary school in davenport. We bought a house in that are so my daughter could attend wilson. There are so many great teachers and a wonderful principal. We also have the Watch D.O.G program of volunteer men to help in any way we're needed. We also are an extra set of eyes and ears keeping our school safe. The staff makes an effort daily to express their appreciation for the volunteers. N finally the most important part of the school is the kids. In my 4 years volunteering I have seen kids standing up to bullys and helping out the disadvantaged kids. The kids show empathy and respect on a daily basis. Wilson is the greatest school in the Quad Cities because of all of the help each and every person gives.

Wilson has a wonderful staff that is caring and focused on the education, safety and well being of all of the students in the school. All of the staff at Wilson believe that the students come first. This year Wilson is piloting a new reading program that is proving to be focused and very meaningful. It is getting back to the basics of reading and adding back in the components of phonics. Wilson staff is 100% against bullying and is quick to take action if and when bullying takes place. Wilson is a Title 1 school that benefits in monies from the federal government to provide a Liaison to help families with their students academic success. The Liaison is available to answer questions, provide tools to use at home with studies and provides monthly family activities for families at school. Wilson also has a very active PTA that organizes monthly family gatherings as well as an active Dad's Club that supports the athletics. Wilson is a great school to learn at, to work at, and to volunteer in.

As a former teacher and current School Administration Manager at Wilson Elementary, I am proud of the staff and students that we have at our school! Parents and community members are the est and highly involved in the school through volunteering, watch dogs, PTA, Dads club an so much more! Surrounded by a safe neighborhood with highly qualified teachers, Wilson Elemntary is amazing! I am fortunate to have spent over 8 years at Wilson working with such an incredible community of staff, students, administration and families. Wilson staff embraces diversity and strives each and every day to meet the needs of every child! Wilson students experience top-notch technology integration and are preparing to become the leaders of our future!
