A weekly update from your principal, Mr. Schulte

Wilkerson Happenings

Our next (and final) PTO meeting will be held on Thursday May 5th. Thank you to all who have attended the meetings, and thank you to the board members for all you do. As we prepare for next year, thank you to all who have already offered to help the PTO in a leadership position for next year.

As part of our annual school report, we are asked to get input from families. If you haven't already done so, please take some time to help us continue to improve by participating in the survey. The survey will be available until the end of the day Monday April 18. We will have a gift card drawing for all who participate. Please make sure to return the participation flyer by Tuesday April 19 to be eligible for the gift card.

The Macomb County Intermediate School District sponsors a "Green Schools" campaign. Schools are awarded a recognition of Green, Emerald, or Evergreen. Thanks to the leadership of Mrs. Steinman and the participation of our staff and students, Wilkerson has once again earned "Evergreen" status. This is described as "a school that goes above and beyond" in its efforts to be energy efficient and recycle.

I have heard great things about a program that encourages dads to volunteer for a day in elementary schools. The program is called Watch DOGS. I have attached a link to a recent article from the Macomb Daily that talks about this program. a recent article about this in the Macomb Daily. Dads, please let me know if you would be interested in volunteering 1 day a year.
