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

Spring Concert - Changes & New Instructions
We are looking forward to the Spring Concert, which is taking place on Thursday, April 11th from 6:00 - 7:00 pm in the gym. Please make note of the following changes:

  • The band will not perform at this concert. However, they are hoping to perform at a later date in the year, if possible. We will keep you informed.
  • The concert order has been changed in an attempt to make transitions smoother: Strings will now perform first at the concert, and the ukuleles will perform second. The Orff Ensemble will still perform last at the concert.
  • Strings meeting room changed to Room 6 (Mr. Harry's group).
  • In keeping with our school's platinum eco-school status, we will not be printing programs for the concert. However, we will send out the program in electronic format on Tuesday or Wednesday. Feel free to print your own or to just read it from your own electronic device.

If you have any questions, please email Ms. Levy or visit

Gastroenteritis Outbreak Declared Over
The Enteric Gastroenteritis outbreak at Dandylion daycare has been declared over by Toronto Public Health. Going forward, please remember if your child experiences any symptoms (vomiting, diarrhea), they should be kept home for at least 48 hours from the last signs of illness. This information sheet from Toronto Public Health provides more information on infection control.

Kindergarten Playground Items
If you have gently used pails, shovels or other sandbox toys, you may donate them to the Wilkinson Kindergarten classes. Donated items may be left in the drop-off box in the main office. Thanks from the Kindergarten team!

International Day of Pink
International Day of Pink is on Wednesday, April 10th. Everyone is invited to celebrate diversity by wearing a pink shirt and by organizing activities in their workplaces, schools, and communities. For more information, visit the Day of Pink website.

Movie Night on Friday
Join us on Friday, April 12th for a showing of Sherlock Gnomes. Doors open at 6:30 pm, the movie starts at 7:00.

Lice Squad Visit
Lice Squad will be at the school on April 16th and 17th to provide our final round of lice checks for this school year. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our lice fund this year!  Because of your participation, we were able to provide three lice checks, and the third is being fully paid for by the lice fund!

If your child brings home a class letter about lice, it means that there is an active case of lice in that classroom.  If you aren't sure what to do, information and tips are available on the council website, along with the results of our past lice checks and ways to contribute to the fund – we’re now set-up for e-transfers.  If you do not wish to have your child take part in this screening, please contact the office at 416-393-9575.

Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for updates. Please check the Online Lost & Found for missing items.
