Our Core Beliefs

Through the use of research based instructional practices we believe the students will learn and make adequate progress toward meeting or exceeding state standards as evaluated through a variety of assessments. Students must be held accountable to high standards of learning, appropriate behavior and making positive choices.

Quality Professional Development will enhance learning, instruction and assessment.

Each student can become a lifelong learner reaching their full potential through research based instructional practices and encouragement by their teachers.

We believe that parental support is an integral part of the student's academic success and essential to creating a home/school partnership.

We believe through continuous professional development, our staff will enhance their instructional practices to continue to meet our students' educational needs.

Building Mission Statement

We will provide Dickson students with a creative and safe environment, excellent educational experiences that increase intellectual skills, collegiality, and respect for diversity, which will promote resilient and independent lifelong learners. We will promote a positive school culture through communication and collaboration among all key stakeholders.

Welcome to Wilkins Elementary School! I am Mrs. Bloch and very proud to have the privilege of being principal of this school for seven years. We are a Pre- K-6 school and offer a wealth of materials to provide the best beginning for your children to become life-long learners. We are a recipient of the Reading First grant that provides many additional supports in the area of reading for the children. Please invite your family and friends of pre-schoolers to call me and schedule a visit to discuss the curriculum and have a tour of the school.


We at Wilkins Elementary believe in the 3 R 's

Rules - To keep everyone safe and to allow for excellent thinking and learning

Respect - For each other to promote a positive self image and a caring environment for all members of our learning environment.

Responsibility - To help each other to be successful. We as educators have the responsibility to educate the children and guide them to reach their highest potential. We also have the responsibility to install a love of learning in each student and stimulate their curiosity to want to continuously absorb as much knowledge as possible.

We encourage parents to work closely with us to foster a positive image between school and home. Children will learn better when they know that the school and their family share an interest in their education and welfare.

Thank you for choosing Wilkins Elementary School.

Karen E. Bloch
Principal of Wilkins Elementary School
