WLC Family Message

March 19, 2023

Dear Callahan Families,

Families can view their child's report on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, by 3:45 PM. Please reach out to us if you have any issues viewing your child's report card. Please see below for more information.

It is Inclusion week in the Burrillville School Department. A flyer went home early last week. Please see below for each day's theme.

Talent show tickets continue to be on sale. Please see below for more information.

Please consider donating to the weekend backpack program. There is a flyer below explaining what we are collecting for the month of March.

The PTF has a flyer below about ordering a yearbook. Please remember that beginning two years ago, the only way a yearbook can be purchased at WLC is online. We no longer have extra yearbooks in the school that will be for sale. Please see the flyer below for ordering information.

Any changes in dismissal need to be emailed to the office to Mrs. Perreault at perreaults@bsd-ri.net or me at brissetted@bsd-ri.net. These need to be emailed in by 1:45 Daily. We understand that an emergency may happen on occasion. This is all to insure your child's safety. Thank you for your cooperation in advance.

Just a reminder to provide us with your most current phone numbers and email addresses so we can better serve our families. You can update in Skyward, or email either Mrs. Perreault at perreaults@bsd-ri.net or me at brissetted@bsd-ri.net.


Mr. Brissette

Talent Show 2023

We are looking forward to the Callahan Talent Show on March 31st. Ticket forms have gone home to students. All WLC families are welcome to attend. Ticket prices are 5 dollars for adults. Children under 12 are free with a canned good item. All ticket sales benefit WLC PBIS sponsored events throughout the school year. If you need another form, please have your child reach out to Ms. Holly or Mrs. Mikulko.

Students participating in the talent show were given pink permission slips. These slips give permission for your child to take the bus from Callahan to the high school on March 29th for the talent show rehearsal. Please send this in as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ms. Holly at shafferh@bsd-ri.net or Mrs. Mikulko at Mikulkot@bsd-ri.net. Thank you! We hope to see you there!
