iCommunity is back!
This week, we had our first iCommunity meeting for students. Several times a year, I meet with each grade and focus in on success traits for the year. This year, I am also building in some brain science and growth mindset activities. Ask your child what they learned today in iCommunity!
TUTORING FOR GRADES 3-5 AT NO COST TO PARENTS!!
WATER SHOULD BE THE ONLY DRINK SENT TO SCHOOL
Just a reminder that students should only be bringing in water to drink at school. Energy drinks, sodas, coffee, and other beverages should be saved for home use. Thank you!
PIK MY KID: THE WAY YOU NEED TO MAKE DISMISSAL CHANGES
This year, our school will be continuing the PikMyKid program to help organize the school car rider dismissal process and improve safety. This program uses a phone application downloaded onto your smart phone (found in the app store) and will allow you to notify the school of pick-up changes, authorize others to pick-up your child from the car line, and help organize the car line during pick-up. PikMyKid numbers DO NOT CHANGE FROM YEAR TO YEAR so, if you had a car tag last year, you will be able to use it this school year as well.
The registration process is easy and we ask that all parents register with the phone application as soon as possible, even if your child is a bus rider. All dismissal changes must be done through the PikMyKid app. Dismissal changes stop at 3:00 p.m. so we can prepare for a smooth dismissal and ensure that all teachers have been notified of changes. With almost 1100 students to get safely dismissed, there will be no exceptions to this rule. I'm sorry in advance for any inconvenience!
Several resources are included below to help you understand how to use the application and assist you with this transition. Please make sure you register with your personal current mobile phone number or the app will not allow you to access your child’s information for security reasons.
If you do not think the school has your mobile number on file or if your child does not appear in your app’s home page, contact firstname.lastname@example.org mailto:email@example.com after registration, with your child’s name, school, grade, and updated contact information for you.
Anyone who will be picking up your child will need to have your child(ren)'s PikMyKid number displayed on their dash. You will need to provide them with this information prior to them arriving at Wilbur.
