Our motto, Make Your Mark A Good One, is a hallmark of The Wilson School. More than being the topic of numerous class meetings and the inspiration for one of our assemblies each month, MYMAGO permeates what we do. This year students created a permanent outdoor art piece to recognize the 2017-18 theme, Make Your Mark A Good One by being Responsible.
In the book Only One You by Linda Kranz, a mother and father fish pull their child aside to impart wisdom including: always be on the lookout for a new friend; look for beauty wherever you are; find your own way; appreciate art; and make wishes on the stars in the nighttime sky. They end with, “There’s only one you in this great big world. Make it a better place.” Wilson students connected this to the statement, “There is only one you, make your mark a good one by being responsible!” To symbolize this, every student in the school painted their own unique rock that became part of a ‘river’ placed next to our outdoor classroom. The outcome is a stunning and creative artistic reminder of the strong emphasis Wilson places on character education.
