On December 21, 2015, the Wilson Elementary community of teachers, parents, students, and volunteers, had the honor of serving their civic duty by beautifying the surrounding Washington Square neighborhood. This outreach opportunity is part of ongoing gestures, which foster responsibility for their community at large. Dr. Hallstrom, Wilson’s principal, believes that hope is developed when the character of individuals is improved. “Each member of the Wilson Elementary community works daily on improvement, and at the same time, takes ownership in being a force of outreach in a capacity where they can be useful. We are proud to be part of the Washington Square community and are honored to serve it,” said, Dr. Hallstrom.
