The Wilmot Word: 9-2-22

Reminder - There is no School on Monday due to Labor Day

This Week at Wilmot

This was a great week. For the first time in over two years we welcomed parents/guardians into the building during our primary and intermediate open house events! It was such a pleasure to see parents in the building interacting with our teachers. Thank you to our wonderful teaching staff for an informative open house! I am looking forward to hosting more in-person events throughout the school year.
