From the Office

Thank you to all families that attended our Wilshire Curriculum Night: Meet the Staff evening on Thursday. It was great to open our doors to welcome you back into the school.

A few important details for our week ahead:

  • Cross Country Meet: Good Luck to our Wilshire Cross Country team who will be heading to the meet on Tuesday with their coaches Ms. Rosenbaum and Mr. Rosenfeld. Have fun!
