Are you looking for learning and fun for your child before or after school hours?  We will have two programs that will be ONSITE at Wilburton Elementary!  Learn more below and also click on Titles for website links that will give you more information about the programs including costs and registration details!  Please note: Right At School and/or Boys & Girls Club will contact families directly if there are any changes/cancellations.

Right At School

Bellevue Boys and Girls Club

Right At School, is a provider of extended day enrichment programs in Washington and across the nation, and a long-time partner of many Districts in Washington– including Puyallup, Edmonds, Federal Way, Renton, Bethel, and Auburn – with significant experience serving diverse communities including: hiring and managing multilingual staff, providing informational materials in multiple languages, employing multilingual customer service representatives, and tailoring curriculum and program activities to local priorities in culture, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

In alignment with BSD’s strategic priorities, Right At School is committed to providing equitable access to their programs in the following ways. Right at School will:

  • provide all families on the free and reduced lunch program with a 50% discount on tuition. Furthermore, Right At School accepts state childcare subsidies and the military Childcare Aware subsidy, and even has a dedicated team and online resource to help parents understand how to apply for subsidies and fill out the correct forms.
  • work with BSD to facilitate grants for students in families experiencing financial inability to pay tuition.
  • provide all BSD staff with a 75% tuition discount.
  • ensure there are no enrollment caps or location restrictions, space permitting, meaning our families will be able to sign up for Right At School in their child’s school building without having to worry about busing, transportation to another school, or wait lists.
  • be able to offer rates in line with our current childcare options and provide flexibility for our parents with 1,2,3,4 or 5-day enrollment options and no change or cancellation fees.
  • help us offer more students opportunities to benefit from extended social emotional learning aligned with our core competencies by leveraging daily SEL activities. Right At School has been recognized as an inaugural member of AASA’s SEL Cohort.
  • help us better accommodate and support special needs students in our childcare programming. Right At School employs a Master’s-level therapist who will work with our staff to develop and accommodate plans for our special needs students.

Project Learn

Project Learn reinforces the skills and knowledge young people learn throughout the school day.  Project Learn includes POWER HOUR, a comprehensive homework assistance program.  Each day, programs are offered in the 3 Priority Outcomes:  Academic Success, Good Character & Citizenship and Healthy Lifestyles. 

The Boys & Girls Club is also open for Bellevue School District’s Schools Out Days and closed for most Federal Holidays. 

 

Parent Representatives on Leadership Teams

To ensure we are working collaboratively in an efficient and effective manner, Wilburton Elementary will have three leadership teams that are made up of staff and community stakeholders so that our collective voice is heard and acted upon to provide a relevant, adaptive, rigorous learning experience for ALL students.

The Three Teams are as follows:

  • Equity and Inclusion Leadership Team
  • PBIS (positive behavior interventions and supports) Leadership Team
  • Community Engagement and Outreach Leadership team

Family Newsletter: May 2018

April Showers bring May flowers… and boy did we have enough showers for multiple bouquets of flowers this past month!  I am hoping for a lot of sun and flowers blooming this May in my garden!  We continue to work every day as we move closer to our opening in late August.  As of late, you probably have seen the outside of the building, including siding and windows get installed.  Inside they are continuing to work on finishing out the classrooms and hallways!  I have to say, my favorite part thus far is the colored glass that is being put in along side the regular windows!

 

Wilburton Elementary School PTA

On April 3 our community voted to have a Parent Teacher Association at Wilburton Elementary School!  We are excited about this partnership and the ways we can work together to support our students and community.

Next up is the PTA Planning Meeting.  The Wilburton PTA Planning meeting will be on May 3 at International School (in the library) from 6-7pm.  ALL are welcome to come and learn more about the forming of our Wilburton PTA.  We hope to see you there!

Questions?  Contact the Bellevue PTSA Council at bellevueptsacouncil@gmail.com.
