This Week at Wilshire

Hello Wilshire Families,

Here are some reminders and notices about upcoming events at Wilshire.

  1. Thank you to everyone who submitted a donation online to support our purchasing of technology for student use in the classroom. We are still accepting donations. Tax receipts will be given for any donation of $25 or over. If you are interested in supporting the school and have not had a chance yet, please go to https://yrdsb.schoolcashonline.com and click on “Make a Donation”. You will require your child’s student number to log in. Thank you for your continued support!

2. The Scheduler for Parent-Teacher Interviews will be closed on the morning of Wednesday, November 11. If you have not already booked an interview, please be sure to log in to Edsby and select a 15 minute block of time to meet with your child’s homeroom teacher. All meetings will be done virtually on the evening of November 12 and morning of November 13. Teachers will share their Google Meet link directly with parents. Parents must use their child’s YRDSB Google account to log in.

3. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, this year’s Remembrance Day ceremony will be conducted virtually in classrooms rather than full school assembly. Students will still be learning about Remembrance Day and honouring those Canadians who fought for our freedoms. Thank you to Mrs. Byrne and Mrs. Raso for organizing our virtual presentation.

4. Does your child have a special talent? Are they musical, funny, athletic? Can they do magic or solve a Rubik’s Cube? We are looking for talented Wilshire students to be part of our first ever Virtual Talent Showcase. Students can submit a video of one minute or less demonstrating their talent (with parental permission). All of the videos will be shared at our Virtual Talent Showcase on Thursday, December 10 at 7:00. More details will be coming!
