A Note from the Administration   Beth Hamilton Principal hamiltonel@bsd405.org   Stephanie Mathias Assistant Principal Mathiass@bsd405.org Dear Wilburton Community,   At Wilburton we are committed to our Wilburton Family.  A community group that accepts all, and embraces each person's identity, including race and culture, that make each of us special. We are all important.  We, as a collective group, can make a difference in our world now and for the future.   We, at Wilburton, are committed to racial equity and inclusion of all in our community and world around us.  As administrators, we know we have an amazing staff in our building that love unconditionally and care deeply about each student and family at Wilburton.     This coming week is Black Lives Matter at School across the nation.  This is a week of action that focuses on affirming all black identities by centering black voices, empowering students, and teaching about black experiences beyond slavery.   Our teachers have been provided resources that they may use this week to emphasize social justice and ethnic studies.  Being intentional about recognizing and affirming our students' identities is paramount to their sense of belonging, feeling welcomed, and an important part of our family. These lessons and learning that focuses on black identities not only benefit our black students but can also be transformative for our nonblack students.  The resource,  BLM AT SCHOOL - Home (blacklivesmatteratschool.com),  is a great resource teachers may be using and can be used by you and your family at home, too, if you wish.   Teachers have been provided resources and will use their professional judgement as to the level of use, engagement, and depth of learning for their unique classrooms, ensuring the content is delivered in an inclusive, supportive, and developmentally appropriate way.  For example, in kindergarten, students may discuss, "what makes each of us unique and different from one another?" and creating an "all about me! Poster that shares things about themselves that show how they are unique."  Or maybe in 3rd grade the students might learn and talk about "hurtful words", teasing, or exclusionary behaviors and how they can be more inclusive and kinder to each other.  And finally, maybe a 5th grade class will analyze, discussion, and understand how families are portrayed in media (TV shows, etc.) and compare/contrast that with their own lives.   The theme this year for Black Lives Matter Week is:  a Week of Action. A Year of Purpose. A Lifetime of Practice.  We invite you to join us in listening, learning, and sharing as part of our family.   #WeAreFamily,   Beth and Stephanie

Happy New Year Wilburton Wolves!  I hope that this winter break you have found joy in being with family and friends while staying safe and healthy.   I want to thank all our K-2 families for filling out the Survey for Return to In Person Learning.  Currently we are analyzing that information and making out class lists and AM/PM sessions for students.  More information will be shared with our K-2 Families in a separate email soon!   As we gear up to start school on Monday, please make sure to check the general channel of your students TEAM for their classroom and also their calendar for the newest schedule for specialists (Art, Music, PE, Library).  Across our district we have made changes to our specialists schedules, increasing their time to between 30-40 minutes, which means the schedule needed to change.  Specialists (Art, Music, PE, Library) are now scheduled throughout the day (between 8-2:30pm).  Your classroom teacher will remind students/families of this change and the specialists have created new meeting times and calendar invites for the classes.   Happy New Year All!

 December is here!  Whoa, how did that happen?! I can honestly say that 2020 has gone fast and slow all at the same time. And, I am also looking forward to the new year!  As we finish out 2020 with these last three weeks of school before winter break, we will continue to partner together to support each of our wolves here at Wilburton – that means wolf staff, students, and families!  I feel so fortunate to have each of our Wilburton wolves here as part of our family to partner with in times like these!  The resilience, innovation, flexibility, challenges, and teamwork is commendable for ALL! We have had our bumps along the way (and no doubt we will continue to have them!) but the more and more we communicate and partner together, the more successful we all are!  THANK YOU for being our partners throughout the years and especially in 2020!  I am thankful and grateful for our Wilburton family!

If your child did not get into the club of their choice be on the look-out for more club opportunities sometime in the new year.   Wilbur, our Wilburton Wolf, misses our students in person!  Please see the attached for a few fun activities with Wilbur that your child may enjoy! if your child completes one, I would love to see it!  maybe it will be featured on our website or newsletter.  Send a picture of it to me via email at hamiltonel@bsd405.org! #WeAreFamily #WilburtonWolves
