Wilson Elementary celebrating 100 years of artistic history
Throughout its 100-year history, Wilson Elementary has woven art into the fabric of its legacy.
Emphasis on the arts has inspired the lessons taught in classrooms, the images decorating school walls and music ringing through the hallways.
The school’s arts integration curriculum blends music, visual arts and drama into its classes, regardless of the subject matter. As the school reflects on its 100th anniversary this weekend, the influence of artistic expression shines unmistakably through its history.
Wilson, 501 NW 21, will invite alumni, families and community members back for an assembly Friday and a cake-cutting ceremony Saturday to commemorate its centennial.
“Wilson is not just the students and the staff and the parents and the community we have now,” Principal Margaret Simpson said. “It’s all the ones that built that solid foundation in arts integration, beginning even way before we became an arts integration school.”
