Happy Monday, Wilkinson! Today is Day 3. Here's your weekly rundown of what's happening at the school.

Facilities Update
We're pleased to announce that the roof replacement project is complete, and the leaks we were experiencing in some classrooms have been addressed. We thank parents, students, staff and anyone else who uses facilities at Wilkinson for their patience. 

International Day of Pink
Wednesday, April 13, 2016, marks the International Day of Pink. It is a day where communities across the country, and across the world, wear a pink shirt to celebrate diversity, raise awareness and put an end to all forms of bullying. Learn more about the event, and please join us by wearing pink on Wednesday. 

Author Visit
Local author/illustrator Barbara Reid is visiting the school on Thursday, April 14, 2016. She will give two presentations, one to the Kindergarten classes and the other to the grade 1 and 2 classes. She is renowned for her artwork using plasticine. Some of her well-known titles include ‘The Party’, ‘Perfect Snow’ and ‘The Subway Mouse’. 

PA Day on Friday
There is no school on Friday, April 15, 2016 because of a board-wide PA Day. We hope our students and their families enjoy their extra-long weekend together!

Is Something Missing From Your Child's Life?
May we suggest you look for it in the school's lost and found bin? There's a good chance it's in there, along with a season's worth of errant mittens, hats, and other long-lost items. 

Reminder: New Website is Live!
Have you had a chance to check out the new school website yet? It's your one-stop shop for all things Wilkinson! Add it to your favourites and check back often to see what's up at the school.
