Wilson Elementary "Confidence"
Hey, friends! Wilson students are studying about the trait of confidence during the month of March. Confidence means believing in your abilities to succeed. The quote we are learning about confidence is once again by Dr. Seuss:

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who'll decide where to go.
(Dr. Seuss)

Wilson students were chosen from each class this month who exhibit confidence in their daily lives. -- Thanks a bunch!

Logan Shaw (3/11/2013) On Wheelchair Basketball National Championship: The tournament was held at The Lakeshore Foundation in Birmingham, AL. We (UTA) went in number 1 seed and lost by 17 in the finals to number 2 seed the University of Alabama. We were down 14 at one point and got the deficit to 2 a couple times then with about 3 minutes left threw it away a couple times and Alabama went on a run. We started to foul em to put em at the line but they were making them all and ended up losing by 17. It was Alabama's first national title. I couldn't make the trip because I got sick right before they left.
