What's Right in the School District of Janesville?

What’s Right in the School District of Janesville (SDJ) is a forum to recognize outstanding performances and achievements by SDJ employees, students and schools. Each week, between now and the end of the school year, SDJ will focus on positive achievements from a specific school.

Wilson Elementary School Receives Two Grants!

Wilson Elementary has received two grants. The first grant was in the amount of $5,000 from the Cronin Foundation. The money will be used to purchase warm winter outerwear for students in need. Mrs. Norton and Mr. DeSormeau are working on purchasing the coats, boots, and snow pants from Blain’s Farm and Fleet. The second grant was in the amount of $125.00 from the JTAG Board. Mrs. Farmer applied for this grant through the Connecting with Nature program in the spring.

Thank you Mrs. Lee!

Mrs. Jeanne Lee is the Wilson Elementary school secretary.  She goes above and beyond in her job every day.  Jeanne is very kind, patient, and helpful with parents, teachers, students, and support staff.  Wilson students adore Mrs. Lee because she takes time to get to know each and every student.  Mrs. Lee has lunch with students on a regular basis and has a Rock Club each week.  Students write Mrs. Lee a paragraph stating why they should belong in Rock Club.  Mrs. Lee then rewards the students with a rock box that she makes to put all of their rocks in that she gives them for rock club.  Mrs. Lee and her husband also organized another very successful Holiday Shoppe event at Wilson that brought in more than $1,100 for the Wilson Student Activity account.  Mrs. Lee and her husband, Mark, organize the shop, contact the donors and volunteers for the shop, and secure many wonderful items from local churches and auctions.   The Holiday Shoppe at Wilson allows families to purchase quality holiday gifts at an affordable price, all items are marked at $1.00, to share with loved ones during the holiday season.
