Wilkerson News

MILLAGE: WCS is having a millage vote this spring. For more details, please go to the following link.

CYBER SAFETY: Parents, please make sure that you are monitoring your child's use of apps, websites, and technology. There are lots of apps that are inappropriate for elementary school children.

PERCEPTION SURVEY: As part of our goal to do our very best to help your children learn, we ask for your feedback so we know how we are doing. This is done via a survey. I have attached the survey link below. Thank you to those who already participated. If you have not, you have until end of the day Monday April 24. Your opinions are important to us. As in the past, we will have a drawing for gift cards for all who participate in the survey. Thanks in advance for your support.

LITTLE CAESARS PIZZA KITS: Every year, we try to thank our safety and service patrol students for all that they do. This year, the student volunteers have enjoyed 2 after school events, and we are currently in the process of finalizing plans for the end of year activity. To help defray the cost of this event, we are having a Little Caesars Pizza Kit sale. Our club sponsors (Mrs. Haddad and Mr. Gruca) are running this activity. Order forms are due back April 26th.

TRADITIONS: Wilkerson and WCS take pride in supporting the environment. Wilkerson has participated in the Macomb County Green Schools initiative for many years. During each of my 3 years at Wilkerson, we have received the highest recognition given out, Evergreen Status. Thank you to all who helped make this happen. And a special thank you to Mrs. Steinman, who chairs our Green School activities.

ACTORS: The WCS Performing Arts program is looking for 5 boys, aged 7-11 to be in their production of "Big Fish". The tryouts begin on April 26th at 4pm. If you are interested, please go to the following link and contact one of the teachers.

NEXT YEAR ENROLLMENT: Last week, all WCS schools sent home a letter asking if your child will be attending school in WCS. Please know that this information is very important to us as we plan how many teachers will be in each building. Please return this to school asap. Thank you for your cooperation.

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION: If you have a kindergartener who will be attending school at Wilkerson in September 2017, please make sure that you register at the WCS admin building, and that you let us know in the Wilkerson office.
