Please keep in mind the following for the week of November 17th thru November 21st:
Bring Your Own Device- In addition to the new technology devices at Wilson Hill, Worthington City Schools is encouraging students to bring their own device (BYOD). There is a flyer about this in eBackpack that gives more information on this initiative.
Volunteer Background Checks- Worthington City Schools has recently changed the vendor for processing background checks. The lead time for processing has increased and will now take between 5-10 days. Please keep this in mind if you will be volunteering within classrooms or attending field trips with students. The Worthington City Schools Human Resource Office can accommodate prospective volunteers daily from 7:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. I.D.’s will arrive 5-10 days after the background check.
Spelling Bee- Classroom spelling bees are taking place this week. The School Bee will take place the week of December 15th the date and time will be determined soon.
Abby Candle Sale- As a reminder, our Wilson Hill PTO Abby Candle Sale began on November 10th. For those families and students that are interested in supporting this fundraiser, thank you. The funds raised will go to Wilson Hill PTO and be used to support students and staff.
Cool Weather- As Winter approaches Wilson Hill will make an effort to take students outside for recess to encourage physical activity. Please make sure that your child has a winter coat, hats and gloves as we head into the winter months. When the conditions are safe and temperatures are above 20 degrees, Wilson Hill students will plan to have outdoor recess.
Student Recognition Assemblies- We will have two assemblies to recognize our students accomplishments that will take place on November 25th and May 8th. At the assembly we will recognize students for their achievements (Example Awards: Perfect Attendance, Circle of Grandparent traits of the month and Honor/Merit Roll for Grades 5/6) . The assembly taking place on November 25th will be at 9:00 for K-3 and at 9:50 for grades 4-6. The time for the assembly May 8th will be in the P.M.(TBD).
