Be Nice Bucket Assembly

The theme of the first Wilkshire Bucket Assembly was BE NICE, BE KIND, BE YOU! This theme is the spirit behind Wilkshire. It's our commitment to each other, and an important concept we like to practice and teach at Wilkshire. Students also learn the Wilkshire wave, which is holding up three fingers and waving. The Wilkshire three fingers wave signifies BE NICE, BE KIND, BE YOU!

Temperatures Are Dropping

It's that time of year, where temperatures are dropping. Wilkshire students have a recess in the morning when temperatures are still cold, so please send your child to school with a jacket or sweatshirt to wear for colder temperatures.
