From the Office

April showers bring May flowers. Mother Nature was definitely playing an April Fool’s trick on us this morning with that snow. We are all looking forward to a little sunshine, spring flowers and warmer weather.

Planning has begun for the upcoming 2022-2023 School Year! Please see the important information below. If you will be leaving Wilshire ES for the next school year, please let the office know as soon as possible!

Elementary Virtual School Registration for the 2022-2023 

While most students are now attending school in-person (face-to-face), we recognize that some families may wish for their child to continue online learning.  The Government of Ontario requires that school boards continue to offer students virtual learning for the 2022-2023 school year.  

For the 2022-2023 school year, our plans do not include hybrid learning next year. 

For more information about the Elementary Virtual School, please see the email sent to families by YRDSB on March 31st, 2022. More information and FAQs are also  available on the virtual schools webpage

Register for Virtual School

A Virtual School Transfer form is being sent to all families through email from YRDSB. If you would like your child to attend the virtual school for the 2022-2023 school year, please complete the Virtual School Transfer form by April 7, 2022! Please contact our school office if you are unable to access the form. 

If you would like your child to remain in face-to-face learning, no action is needed.

Our Active April Challenge begins today. We encourage families to use the prompts in the Action for Happiness calendar to see the value of staying active and have fun as a whole family.

World Autism Day

World Autism Day is April 2nd. Students and staff are encouraged to wear red on April 4th to show your support for those with ASD. On Monday, Ms. Bonura, Ms. McIntosh and Ms. Racioppo will be hosting an assembly for our Wilshire community to help learn more about autism and recognize the beautiful differences that make us incredible. If you wish, please donate today to Autism Ontario in order to bring awareness and develop research for those who have Autism.

Popcorn & Cookies are Back!  

We are pleased to share that we are selling popcorn and cookies for $2 each on Tuesday and Thursday during morning recess. Ingredient lists were shared with families through email. All profits will be supporting our Gr. 8 Graduation.

Kindergarten Registration is well underway for the 2022-2023 school year. Children who turn four or five years old during 2022 and live within our school boundary will be eligible to register for kindergarten. Registration information is available on the YRDSB website at Kindergarten Registration. All new kindergarten registrations will be done online this year. Please see the link or email our school office at wilshire.es@yrdsb.ca for more information.

Have a fabulous weekend.
