What A Busy Week Celebrating differences is an important part of Wilmot School. This week we kicked off our new Wilmot Cultural Collections Celebration! Mrs. Simon has arranged for two Wilmot families will present their heritage collections in the display windows located in our inside foyer. For October, our displays showcase the cultures of Pakistan and Zimbabwe/South Africa. Thank you to the Junaid and Drayton families for sharing their cultural collections with our Wilmot Family.
Kindness Corner #wilmotkindnessrocks Today our fourth graders had a special field trip to Bernie’s Book Bank. Students had an opportunity to volunteer at Bernie’s, by packing boxes of books for children who do not have access to books. Giving to others through volunteer projects is an amazing way for our students to demonstrate kindness. Earlier this week Mrs. Santella snapped a photo of Vincent (a second grader) greeting kindergarteners with a hug as they exited the bus. They were very excited to see each other at school.
Fire Prevention Week Next week is National Fire Prevention Week. The Deerfield Fire Department will visit with classes briefly next week to encourage fire prevention and safety at school and at home. I encourage families to think about fire safety at home.
Disabilities Awareness Week October 21 - 25 is our annual Disability Awareness Week. We have a very exciting program planned this year. Look for more information to come.
