It is quite something to think that we are in the last week of May! Last week was another fabulous one at Wilshire with our Junior and Intermediate Track & Field days, Kindergarten students to Tiny Town, Grade 7s to the Burrlington Outdoor Education Centre and continued planning for upcoming Wilshire End of Year Carnival! Please review important information below for our coming week together.
End of Year Celebration
On June 1, our Wilshire Parent Council will be hosting our End of Year Celebration. All current students and families and future Junior Kindergarten students are invited. Food packages and tickets will be available for purchase via School Cash Online until Monday, May 29th at NOON! In order to make the night a success, our Parent Council is looking for volunteers to help out. It is going to be an evening of family fun and you don’t want to miss out.
Grade 2 & 4 Families Reminder
On Monday our Gr. 4 students and on Tuesday our Gr. 2 students will be heading to the Burrlington Outdoor Education Centre (BORC). They have contacted us to share a reminder to dress for outdoor learning. It is tick and mosquito season: wear a hat, real socks to allow pants to be tucked in (not ankle socks), light coloured, long sleeved shirt/lightweight jacket and pants (avoid leggings, especially black) and no crop tops. The BORC property is beautiful in the spring and it’s best enjoyed when visitors are dressed appropriately. This is going to be a fabulous day for the students.
Bike and Scooter Safety
Bike to School Week is May 29 – June 1st! Join in the fun of being active. We are excited to see our older students enjoying the nice weather and riding their scooters and bikes to school. We would like to remind families that by law in Ontario, anyone 18 years old and younger, must wear a helmet while riding a bike. It is also strongly recommended to prevent head injury that children wear helmets when using scooters.
Class Placement Family Survey
Monday, May 29th is the last day to share any information that you would like considered through the Class Placement Parent Survey 2023 – 2024. Balancing the needs of all students is not an easy task. Placement decisions are made by a team of staff who know your child, their learning strengths and needs, and their peer relationships. Requests for individual teachers should not be made. Please keep in mind that teacher assignments often switch from year to year. We value the input from parents/guardians. This survey allows your voice to be considered in this process. One survey should be completed for each child for whom you wish to provide input. Once you submit the first survey, it will give you a link to submit another response for additional children.
Celebrate your child’s creativity by transforming your child’s art into give cards, calendars and more! Keep your eyes out for the order form that will be coming home last week with artwork from your child. All proceeds will go towards bringing incredible guest speakers and arts programming into Wilshire! Monday, May 29th is the last day to place your order!
