Happy Thanksgiving!

What a wonderful time of the year! It certainly has been challenging, but each and every day I am grateful for our Wild Rose Community! We had a great spirit week and a fun day remembering and honoring Dr. Allison. I hope you all take time to relax this next week, rejuvenate, and just enjoy your time together. It is truly a gift if you have the opportunity to spend this time with those you love and care for. I will be hosting Thanksgiving for my family and just so happy to have everyone home. We plan to reconnect, watch movies, play games, and laugh~!

E-Learning Plan and Emergency Days

The School Board has approved an E-Learning plan that gives the district the option to offer remote learning in place of emergency days. Currently, our last day of school is Tuesday, May 24, which is the week before Memorial Day. As we move into the winter months, we want to update you on the plan for how the district will manage emergency days and e-learning days.

  • If we experience inclement weather, the first three days will be “snow days” that will be made up at the end of the school year on May 25, 26, and 27 as needed.

  • Subsequent emergency days will be remote days so the last attendance day will still be before Memorial Day.

  • If there is a long stretch of inclement weather (blizzard, polar vortex, etc.), we may split the days into “snow days” and e-learning days so as to not have too many non-attendance days in a row.

St. Charles Education Foundation

Over the past 30 years, the STC Ed Foundation has donated almost $1.4 million to support D303 students. Last year, at Wild Rose, we received a grant that funded mobile bookcases. The foundation also gave $10,000 to improve internet connectivity in school neighborhoods, and funded four scholarships for high school seniors. Please consider supporting this important organization by donating, giving teacher tributes, attending the spring event at Pollyanna Brewing - or all of the above! More information can be found here.

Please see the link for a grant received by Michelle Tykal here in the Wild Rose LRC.
