Dear Wilshire Parents,
This is a friendly reminder to set-up your Edsby account before Wednesday November 12, 2018.
Families will need to create an Edsby account to access the online appointment scheduler for their child’s teachers for Parent Teacher Interviews on November 22 (pm) and November 23 (am). Only families who create an Edsby account will have access. For help signing up for Parent-Teacher interviews/Student Led Conferences, please visit http://bit.ly/ptifamily.
The server name to associate your Edsby account with is YRDSB.
If you have yet to receive your email invite to join Edsby, please email Ms. Kakish at firstname.lastname@example.org to forward you the invitation so you can get started.
Please note: you will be able to book appointments with your child’s homeroom teacher ONLY. If you would like to meet with a rotary teacher, we ask you to contact the teacher directly via email or note to arrange times.
We encourage you to bring your child(ren) with you to meet with their teacher at your scheduled time.
Parent-Teacher interview schedules open at 4:00 pm on November 14 for booking. An invitation/link will be sent to your Edsby inbox with a notification.
Parents of Junior Kindergarten students will be invited to attend a classroom observation in lieu of a Parent-Teacher interview. Invitations for these observations will be coming home with your child.
In addition to booking Parent-Teacher interviews, please use Edsby for notifying the school of any student absences.
If you have any questions about these processes, please contact our main office.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation
Our Kindergarten classes are looking for the following items. If you have any of these items that are no longer wanted at your home, and they are clean and in good shape, please consider donating them to the school office for our Kindergarten classes:
- Lego / Duplo
- Toy Cash Register
- Crayons or Markers
- Please no stuffed animals
Thank you in advance.

As a School Council, one of our goals this year is to increase the number of mobile technology devices (e.g. Chromebooks) that are available to students in the school. Our goal is to add two more class sets of Chromebooks to the school. Each Chromebook costs approximately $250. Currently, the YRDSB is offering a cost-sharing program for the month of November – for any amount spent on technology by the school, the Board will match the funds. Thank you already to everyone who sent in donations at the beginning of the school year, either in cash or through School Cash Online. We were able to raise approximately $1400 to put towards new Chromebooks. We wanted to send out one last plea just in case people had forgotten during the busy weeks of September. If you would like to make a donation to our School Council Fundraising to support the purchase of Chromebooks, please log into School Cash On Line (SCO), click on the “Donate Now” button, select the school (Wilshire), and indicate the donation amount. An automated tax receipt is sent once the donation is complete online, and is sent directly to the email address provided when you created your account. A receipt is sent regardless of the amount donated. Alternatively, you can send cash or a cheque, made out to Wilshire Elementary School accompanied by a note indicating that it is for the School Council Chromebook fundraiser. Please make any donations by November 12 in order to help us meet our goal. Thank you for your support!
