Happy 2014!

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break and HAPPY 2014! 

Update:  Due to the low turnout of volunteers, there will not be an all school head lice check tomorrow.
Some simple steps we can take at home to prevent the spread of lice at Wilson is to be sure your child knows the importance of not sharing any items that touch the head or ears. Explain to your child what lice is and that they should avoid touching heads with other children. Also, be sure to inspect your child’s clothes—particularly hats, shirts, scarves, and coats. We hope this helps, thank you!

Wish Stockings

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas will soon be there!

The Teacher Wish Stockings have been hung in the main entrance of the school.  If you are looking for that perfect gift for your child's teacher, be sure to stop by and grab a "wish" (or two) for their classroom!  All stockings will be filled with teacher wishes by December 2. 
We hope this helps with your holiday shopping!

To help make your holiday shopping a bit easier, PTA has put together “Wish Stockings” for all the teachers at Wilson!  The “Wish Stockings” will be hung in the main entrance of the school beginning December 2. Each teacher will have their own “Wish Stocking” filled with ideas of items they need and/or want for their classroom! If you find something from that stocking that you would like to purchase for your child’s teacher this holiday season, simply take that “wish” out of the stocking and you are ready to shop! Feel free to take as many “wishes” as you would like. And don’t forget Wilson’s specialist teachers, they do a lot for our kids too!  We hope this will take some of the stress out of your holiday shopping this season!

Thank you and we hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving!
