SEPTEMBER 8 Wilbur Words
SEPTEMBER 8, 2023
WEAR YOUR RED, WHITE, AND BLUE!
Although it was a short week, it was a really LONG week with our lack of water on Wednesday and emergency early dismissal and then power issues on Thursday. However, all seems to be working well now and I thank everyone for your patience and flexibility as we dealt with these things!
OPEN HOUSE IS NEXT WEEK!
Please plan on being a part of our Open House and Curriculum Night next week! This is a parent-only event so that parents can get all the information that they need to help their child start the year off right. Kindgergarten, First, and Second grades will be on Wednesday, 9/13 and grades 3, 4, and 5 will be on Thursday, 9/14. If you have multiple students, you can divide your time among the classrooms if needed. We look forward to seeing everyone here!
WILBUR INSPIRED FAMILIES
We are launching our new parent group - Wilbur Inspired Families! This is an all-inclusive group and will have no dues or fees for families to be a part of, unlike a PTA. There are four areas that we will be looking for volunteers to assist with after the year gets fully up and running. Mrs. Angel Cassetta, one of our fabulous teachers, is taking the lead on organizing the group and getting events and activities up and running. If you are interested in helping out, reach out to her at firstname.lastname@example.org. See below for two upcoming fun events!
GET A SWEET TREAT!
We will have a SweetFrong fundraiser on September 21st from 4:30-8:30 pm. Come and enjoy a delicious treat at Sweet Frog! (1225 Quintilio Drive Bear, DE 19701)
Mention Wilbur Elementary when checking out and Wilbur will receive a portion of the proceeds to fund student activities and events.
We will have arranged for a skating night for Wilbur families only on October 18th from 6:00-8:00 at Christiana Skating Center. (801 Christiana Road Newark, DE 19713)
Join us for a fun night of skating with Wilbur friends!
Admission for skaters is $5.00 at the door and skate rentals are available for $4.00.
NOTE: Students must be supervised by their parents, this is not a drop off event, and all skaters do so at their own risk. Some Wilbur staff may attend, but will not be supervising the event.
