Greetings J.O. Wilson Elementary School Families,

I hope that you’ve had a restful and relaxing summer and you’re preparing for a productive school year focused on educational excellence. Can you believe that in five weeks we will be opening our doors to welcome our students, families, and staff back to school? I continue to be honored and excited to be a member of the J.O. Wilson Family. As your principal, each day I look forward to continue to build and strengthen the relationships that we’ve begun building with all of our wonderful students, families, teachers, and talented staff.

As in previous years, we will continue our commitment to helping all children develop their intellectual capacity, academic skills, and social competence so that they will be prepared to effectively negotiate the demands associated with living in an ever-changing 21st century. By partnering with families, we will promote a healthy transition to school both socially and emotionally. We recognize that some students may be feeling anxious with the start of a new school year, and we will continue to place a strong emphasis on social emotional learning while focusing on building strong classroom communities.

Throughout the remainder of the summer we will be providing procedural, operational, and scheduling updates communicated to you via The Cardinal Connection. To stay abreast of what is taking place here at J.O. Wilson, please be sure to provide us with an updated cell phone number and email address so that you can receive the most up to date information via our Blackboard messaging system as well as our weekly bulletin, The Cardinal Connection. Also, remember to visit our website ( regularly for current news and upcoming events.

Enjoy the remainder of your summer and get ready to S.O.A.R. into an exciting and successful year.

Warm regards,
Mitchell V. Brunson
Principal, J.O. Wilson Elementary
