Dear Wilson Families-

Greetings!  As we approach colder weather please make sure your child has warm clothing (jackets, hats, gloves/mittens, snow pants, and boots).  It is helpful if these items are labeled as many students lose these things throughout the year. During recess, students are only allowed in the snow if they are dressed for the weather.  If you need these items please contact our social worker Alisha Field ( ). She would be happy to help in any way she can.

We have switched to four quarters this year to become aligned with our middle and high school.  Our first quarter ends on November 1st and we have conferences coming up. We are asking families to sign up for a conference time the same way they did for before school interviews.  Please follow the link below to sign up for a 20-minute conference with your child’s teacher.

Conferences will be held: 

Tuesday, November 12th, 3:00-7:00

Thursday, November 14th, 3:00-7:00

Friday, November 15th, 7:40-11:40

A quick reminder that school is not in session on Monday, November 4 due to teacher workday and staff development day.

As an additional reminder, the high school building bond vote is on, Tuesday, November 5. If you are a resident of our school district, I encourage you to go vote. Polls will be open 7am to 8pm. 

If you don’t want to wait until Tuesday to vote, you can vote early by going to the Steele County Auditor’s Office located at 630 Florence Avenue.  The auditor’s office will be open for early voting:

Friday, November 1 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  

Saturday, November 2 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m

Monday, November 4 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

Election Day voting takes place at your polling location based on where you live. For more information about the referendum and where to vote, please visit our website at www.owatonnaproud.org 

Please save the date on December 3 for our Winter Music Concert.  Details about the concert are included in this newsletter. On December 5, we will be bringing in the RAD Zoo, along with other fun, for our Wilson Family Night.  These evernings are always fun and full of great learning!  

Looking forward to the wonderful winter season! As always if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at anytime.

Best regards, 

 

Melodee Hoffner, Principal
