Mrs. Mallory Wilson

Welcome from Mrs. Wilson

Greetings and welcome back to a new school year!  My name is Mallory Wilson and I am so excited to be a part of the Longfellow family this year as the principal.  Even though this is my first year in Marion Unit 2, I have 15 previous years of experience in education.  I am already proud of our teachers and staff who have put a tremendous amount of work into planning for a successful school year and in giving our students the very best educational experiences possible.

I feel that strong relationships are important in the success of a school.  As a mother and educator, I know that supportive relationships built within the schools are invaluable for students.  To develop and foster those relationships, I value my opportunities to spend time with your child, getting to know their personalities and interests.  We always celebrate success and learn to work even harder when we experience failure.  Together, we will continue to grow and learn a lot! 

Communication is the key to ensuring a successful school year for our students.  Please make sure you are checking your phone, email, and any class apps when possible.  We are a “team” at Longfellow and are committed to supporting and enriching our students’ academic, social, and behavioral growth.  I see parents as important team members and welcome you to take on an active role in your child’s education and in our school community.  Let’s work together to ensure your child feels safe and is excited and eager to learn! 

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call (618) 993-3230 or email me at  Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience throughout this school year.  Your support is appreciated!
