What a beautiful new campus we have! Come check it out!
The main building was completely re-done, there is a new three story building by the pool, both gyms and locker rooms got a facelift, and the S-Wing (Now called the M and N wing) has great state of the art equipment for our arts and electives. The quad looks fabulous with the old, dead trees replaced by new ones, which will be great once they grow enough to give us some shade! The cafeteria is amazing and all of our productions have moved to the theater, so the extra back stage space that was there before is now a state of the art fitness room. Our library is gorgeous and loaded with technology, as are all of our computer labs and classrooms. We've come a long way! Thanks so much to all who helped to make this happen!
Creighton Lane, beloved coach, staff member, and friend to so many, passed in February. I will add the link to the amazing foundation created to honor his memory soon.
In July of 2013, we lost a dedicated, loving, and brilliant teacher, Ms. Joan Owen.
We are sad to announce the passing on May 7, 2013 of Ms. Diane Di Bari, Wilcox's school psychologist for the last 20 years.
We are sad to announce the passing of Mr. Foster Lopes. He taught in the district from 1962-1986.
We are saddened by Mr. Lopes' recent passing. His funeral will be held Tuesday Feb. 12th at 11:30am at the Lima Family Mortuary in Santa Clara. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Santa Clara Schools Foundation, or one of several other charities to which Foster felt a closeness.
This is a link to a very nice online obituary:
