Dear Wilson Hill Families,
It seems different to have two full weeks of school in before Labor Day! The first two weeks have been good weeks thanks to our students! We hope that all students and families enjoy some extra time together on Monday, September 1st with no school in honor of Labor Day.
Wilson Hill Back to School Party- Fun, Food, Crafts and Music will all be a part of the fun as we kick off another school year. Sponsored by the wonderful Wilson Hill PTO taking place Friday September 5th!!! Please view the flier in eBackpack for more information on this event.
New Family Orientation- For those families that are new to Wilson Hill, there will be an informal orientation before the 1st PTO meeting on September 9th at 6:30 in the Wilson Hill Library. Families can learn more information about Wilson Hill, connect with other families and ask questions about the school.
Curriculum Night (SAVE THE DATE)- Wilson Hill will have a curriculum night for grades 1st-6th Grade on Thursday, September 18th starting at 6:00 PM. There will be 3 opportunities to hear about each grade levels curriculum, standards and expectations. The sessions will begin at 6:00, 6:40, and 7:20 in grade level classrooms. More Information to follow soon. We hope that 3 sessions accomodates schedules for families and those families that have multiple students at Wilson Hill.
Market Day- This week your child should have brought home our first Market Day flier for the year. If you are new to the school, or just Market Day in general, once a month Wilson Hill families have the opportunity to order food online and have it delivered to our school for pick up. Market Day sells items similar to Costco, Sam's Club, GFS, etc.. . Please take a look at the flier, or better yet, go to the website,www.marketday.com and look around! Online reviews of items, recipes and sales can all be found on the website. Our school account # is 18333. Please make sure and enter this number on the website if placing an order for the first time. That way, we can make sure Wilson Hill gets credit! Our school can earn up to a 20% profit of all sales each month! Last day to order from the website is 9/5. You may also turn in the paper order form that came in the September flier, by 9/2. Pickup for Market Day will be in the school gym from 6:00-7:00pm on September 10th. Any questions, please call Nicole McLean at 746-2600.
Website Quicklinks- On the left hand side of our webpage are some quicklinks that may be useful to our families. There are links for Common Core Standards, PARCC Assessments, Wilson Hill Google Calendar, recently added the Wilson Hill Hanover Survey Results from last school year and more. Please take some time to look at this information if you have not already. We hope that this is useful for our Wilson Hill School Community.
6th Grade Fundraiser- Our 6th Grade students have “kicked off” the Mumkin Fundraiser for Wilson Hill. The money raised for this will go directly to supporting our 6th Grade class Camp Trip in May. If you are interested in ordering Mumkins and do not know a 6th grade student/family, please view the flier in eBackpack for more information to order. The sale runs ends on September 15th.
