I'm sending my sincere gratitude for making our Book Fair an outstanding success! All of our volunteers for this event deserve my special thanks! The Book Fair would not be possible without you! To all of our Wilkshire families, I hope to see you and your child(ren) at our next Book Fair in March - Monday, March 27 through Friday, March 3. Until then, happy reading!

Gratefully, Mrs. Montgomery

Clothes, Clothes and More Clothes

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.

As a reminder, we ask families to please pack an extra set of clothes for your child - underwear, socks, pants and shirt - for when accidents happen. It's so nice for a student to put on clothes that are their own.

Wilkshire Fall Festival Dates

The Wilkshire Fall Festival dates are:

DK and Kindergarten classrooms - Thursday, October 27

First Grade classrooms - Friday, October 28

Teachers will communicate the time for each classroom. To minimize the number of people in the building during school hours, each classroom can have a limited number of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the classroom teacher, and complete a background check (banner below) unless you have already completed one for this school year.

Please note, school policy does not permit costumes at any time.

Interested in Volunteering?

We love volunteers! All volunteers must complete the necessary paperwork. Once completed and approved, you're good to go for the entire school year! Click on the banner above to register.
