Updates for the Week

Hello Wilkesboro families! Last week was a great week, and we are excited for the upcoming one. Here are some quick updates for the week of April 26-30.

We’d like to thank you for your generous donations to our playground fundraiser. It has been a successful campaign, and we will send home receipts tomorrow from Friday’s donations. We ask that students return those receipts to donors. Please note that receipts for single donations of $100 or more were mailed directly to donors. We’ve had some requests for late donations, so please send any remaining donations this week. We will announce our final totals and hold our drawings on Friday. We are enormously grateful for your support of this fundraiser.

On Tuesday, we will send home progress reports for the fourth quarter. This is the last progress report for the year and will include some information regarding upcoming school events. Please make time to review the report with your child and reach out to your teacher with questions.

Finally, on Friday, we will have a special green and gold spirit day to celebrate our WE spirit! Please wear your Wilkesboro gear and your green and gold! The class with the most participants earns a special treat.

You can learn more about what’s happening in your child’s classroom on our weekly #WE Rise page here: https://www.smore.com/54hq89

It’s a busy time, but we are proud of our students, teachers, and families and the hard work you’ve done this year. We appreciate all of your support and encouragement from home. Thank you and have a great evening!

About Attendance

Parents, please note that since we have moved to Plan A, students who are participating in Plan A will be marked PRESENT or ABSENT. If your child is not in school, you will need to send in absence notes as usual and it will be coded as excused or unexcused. If your child is officially quarantined or excluded by the health department and/or the school nurse, your teacher will offer remote learning. If your child participates and submits work each day, the student will be marked PRESENT OFF SITE (1R). If not, the quarantine absences would be excused. If your child needs to be out, we will work with you to make sure your child doesn't get behind.

For students who continue with remote learning note that in order for us to count your child in attendance off site, we must on a daily basis verify that the student is engaged (completing and submitting assignments), on pace (participating in the virtual classroom), or receiving academic/emotional support (directly from the teacher). If this isn't happening, your child will be counted absent. Please make sure that your child is submitting work and that you are communicating with the teacher daily. Thanks in advance for your help!
