A note from the Principal...

Monday, October 31 is recognized and celebrated as Halloween


We remind our Wilkshire families that school policy does not permit costumes at any time, and ask that you do not send your child to school with a costume or wearing a costume. If your family celebrates Halloween, we wish you a fun and safe time. I am including Halloween safety tips for your information.

Trick or Trash

Wilkshire students are working hard to help our environment through the National Wildlife Federation's "Trick or Trash" program. Our school is collecting all kinds of candy wrappers to be recycled. Our goal is to fill this box to the very top with candy wrappers! We will be collecting wrappers until Friday November 4th. Please send them to school with your child in a ziploc bag. If you have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. Barrett at barretna@haslett.k12.mi.us. Thank you!

Unlike most of the other children at Miss Hannigan's orphanage, spunky Annie believes that her parents are still alive and will one day return to claim her.
