Jump Rope for Heart – Message from Mr. Tallidis (2nd posting)

Did you know it’s time for our entire school to officially kick-off our Jump Rope For Heart program?  Yes, that’s right!  Our school’s event is right around the corner!  It’s time to go WILD about heart health and saving lives.  We are thrilled to participate in this event as we work together to raise lifesaving donations for the American Heart Association as we learn how good nutrition and being active can help us live longer, healthier lives.  

Your child will be telling you about the Zoo Crew animals they can earn, so we wanted to fill you in!  Each zoo animal teaches students a way to protect their heart and avoid risk factors for heart disease and stroke.  Your student can earn all 6! All classes brought home JRFH envelopes that can be used to collect and log all donations until March 8th. Have your child follow directions to create an online login on the AHA website, so I (Mr. Tallidis) can track their progress and give the students all the prizes they earn along the way. During the week of March 8th, the students will be participating in a fun jump rope event during PE class to celebrate our achievements!

What A Busy Week At Wilmot

Wilmot students spent the week spreading kindness throughout our school and community.   Students performed many kind acts at school this week as part of the Kindness Challenge.  Last Thursday Mrs. Dubin took another group of children to Brentwood North where they created art projects with seniors. Everyone enjoyed making Valentine’s Day cards together.  Students continued to demonstrate kindness during our Valentine’s Day parties where all students created cards which were shared with seniors at both Whitehall and Arden Courts. This has become a wonderful Wilmot tradition.

Today 5th graders participated in their Legacy Tile Project.  Mrs. Dubin guided students in creating tiles in chalk that represent themes such as landscapes, colleges and foods.  Check out these awesome creations out next time you visit Wilmot or on our Facebook page.

What A Busy Week At Wilmot

This was a very busy week at Wilmot.  Earlier this week students celebrated the 100th day of school by using reading, counting, building and problem solving skills.  Check out room 9’s 100 favorite books.  On Wednesday several 3rd grade student leaders took on the role of the teacher by leading a training session on the Osmo gaming system, during our early release workshops.  Teachers learned from student leaders how to use the Osmo number, word, coding, drawing and tangram games in their classrooms.  Mr. Craig’s 4th graders created a video message in Spanish to share with their class pen pals from Spain.  The video featured students and staff throughout the school.  Finally, Ms. Kinley’s 5th grade TAP ELA students completed their first newscast as part of an ongoing project they have created:  WESN (Wilmot Elementary School News).  Although students are still working on strategies to shorten the newscast and control the volume, this is a wonderful example of an authentic learning opportunity for our students.  Using the principles of the Wilmot Way (Grit, Perseverance and a Growth Mindset) these students applied for various jobs associated with a newscast, learned to record and at times re-record using video equipment as they identified stories of interest.  Congratulations WESN on your first newscast. 

 

Random Acts of Kindness & the Kindness Challenge (2nd posting)

What a Busy Week at Wilmot

Yesterday our kindergarten students braved the cold weather to go on a field trip to the Heller Nature Center.  On the trip our boys and girls went on a nature hike where they saw deer tracks and other animal footprints. They also learned about the groundhog, hibernation and what happens when the groundhog sees her shadow.  Unfortunately, Gracie the groundhog saw her shadow and we will have six more weeks of winter.

District 113 (Deerfield High School) is considering future changes to their calendar in order to move first semester finals before winter break. Any changes that District 113 chooses to make would not take effect until the start of the 2018-2019 school year; approximately 20 months from now. One of the options District 113 is considering would move the start date of school earlier in August (for the 2018-2019 school year, the exact date would be August 13, 2018). Other options under their review include unbalanced semesters and no change to the traditional calendar. Parents of students at Deerfield High School should have the opportunity to take a survey from District 113 that clearly articulates potential calendar shifts.  

Historically, when the school calendars are created, District 109 closely follows the District 113 calendar, which includes having similar start dates for students. However, given that we do not administer final exams like the high school, we are interested in gathering District 109 opinions on if or how we should adjust our calendar in the event of a significant change in the Deerfield High School calendar.

Please click to take a very short survey about the District 109 calendar. The survey closes February 1.

What a Busy Week at WilmotThe Wilmot Philanthropy club “Team Give” started the new year off by supporting Syd Rocks.  In 2007, Sydney Martin started making and selling rock necklaces to raise money for LCH (Langerhan’s Cell Histiocytosis), after being diagnosed with this rare blood disease.  On Thursday Sydney shared her story with the philanthropy club and inspired students to make a difference by giving back in a way that is meaningful to them. She reminded students that she was just 10 years old when she started Syd Rocks http://www.sydrocks.com/ , which has raised nearly $500,000 for medical research related to LCH.  Our students helped Sydney make over 280 necklaces.

A Happy New Year Message from Wilmot School – click here

What a Busy Week at Wilmot

Today we had our first PAWS assembly, hosted by fifth graders, Hannah and Ethan. All younger students were paired with their buddies to join in a Kahoot game to review our PAWS expectations.  Kahoot is a game-based learning platform that allows users to create quizzes on any topic.  Buddies  used a shared device to answer questions about the PAWS principles (Practice respect, Act responsibly, Work together and Stay safe, CHAMPS and The Wilmot Way (Grit, Perseverance and a Growth Mindset)). We then picked PAWS at random from the PAWS Drum and awarded prizes to winning students.  Everyone had a great time playing the game and cheering on friends and buddies.

Parking Lot Procedures (2nd posting)

We need your cooperation and support of our parking lot, drop off and pick up procedures.  Our procedures and rules apply to everyone and are put into place for the safety of our children.  Students are to be dropped off and picked up in the west lot only.  A staff member will be at the GMA door each day until at least 8:40 (later on severe weather days). All cars must pull as far north (forward) in the west lot as possible.  Children may enter the building through the nearest door, including the front doors, gym doors or GMA doors and walk inside to their lineup location (K-2: GMA and 3-5: Gym).  Our staff will be on hand to assist students.  Stopping along the primary playground fence or near the GMA doors creates a dangerous situation as cars back up onto Wilmot Rd. Our students are aware of these rules.  Disregard for these rules sends a terrible message to our children and creates a potentially unsafe situation. Your patience and support are appreciated!
