Wilcox-Hildreth has a phenomenal team and we would like to help highlight the moments our team members shine the brightest.
FORK! Falcons Observed Radiating Kindness!
Nominations are submitted by staff members. Each week, a nominated staff member will be selected, presented with the honorary fork, and recognized district-wide. The staff member will be able to keep the fork for the week as an interesting conversation piece to help them share their wisdom with others or maybe just as tasteful decor.
Congratulations to Mr. Patterson!
Our district is so lucky to have Justin Patterson! He embodies what it truly means to be a team player. There is never a job that is too big or too small that he takes on. From driving a bus route to helping set-up events, leading a cheer (or high kick) at a pep rally, or supervising students, Justin is there to lend a hand and help our district run smoothly. He truly has school pride and always thinks about what is best for kids.
Congratulations to Gladys!
Gladys has done an exceptional job stepping into her new role. Taking on leadership responsibilities has gone smoothly and seems like a natural fit for her. She worked hard to be ready for the start of the year and has provided delicious and nutritious meals for our students and staff.

You do a wonderful job!!!

Congratulations to Lyndsay Robinson!
Lyndsay has been a blessing to the FFA chapter for the past few years! She has been the best chaperone, judge and "co-advisor" whenever asked. While Mrs. Faimon is on maternity leave, Lyndsay has taken on a huge role helping the chapter continue with all of their events. She has helped set up and arrange the concession stands for the demolition derby, chaperoned numerous activities, hauled members to events, collected dues and membership information, as well as helped run and organize chapter meetings. Lyndsay not only helps with the FFA chapter, but is dedicated to our school and students. She devotes a lot of time as the cheer sponsor, booster club member, and a school paraprofessional. I could not think of a more deserving person for this recognition! Thank you Lyndsay for EVERYTHING that you do!
