Today is World Kindness Day. May you find kindness, share kindness and bring a smile to someone’s face!

Please take a moment to review the following information:

REMEMBRANCE DAY ASSEMBLY AT WILSHRE ES

Friday morning, our phenomenal Grade 7 & 8 students from Mr. Rosenfeld’s class hosted our students and staff through a meaningful time of reflection to mark Remembrance Day and Indigenous Veterans Day. A number of students from other classes participated in the assembly by sharing poems, poppy wreaths, and their postcards to veterans. For many of our Wilshire students, Friday marked the first time they’ve ever participated in such a large group gathering.  Thank you students of Wilshire for your excellence.

PARENT/GUARDIAN-TEACHER INTERVIEWS…AND PROGRESS REPORTS

As a follow-up to some questions regarding student progress, please review the following information:

  • Access to EDSBY for interviews close Monday, November 14th at noon (12:00pm). If EDSBY closes before you get to book your time, you will need to contact the HOMEROOM TEACHER directly to set up an interview time
  • Log into EDSBY and select an available slot to meet with the HOMEROOM TEACHER;  When you log in, you’ll either see “book” or “available” for any slots not yet selected, or “blocked” if the slots are not available
  • If for some reason, you cannot make the times available, please connect directly with the HOMEROOM TEACHER for alternate arrangements
  • If your child has 2 teachers and you wish to meet with the non-Homeroom teacher, please connect with the Non-Homeroom teacher via email or phone to coordinate a time.  Unfortunately, there are not enough time slots on the 17th and 18th for non-Homeroom teachers to see all parents/guardians
  • Due to technical issues, Progress Reports will be distributed the week of November 23rd. This will occur after Parent/Guardian-Teacher Interviews).  Homeroom Teachers will be able to speak to your child’s progress to date at the Parent/Teacher interview.
  • Parent/Guardian-Teacher interviews will take place on Thursday November 17 in the evening, and in the morning of Friday November 18.
