Clearances and Field Trips
It's spring trip season and your children are likely taking their class trip in the next few weeks. If you are attending a class trip, like Education Day with the Fightins - grades 3 to 5 on Thursday, June 1, you must have clearances to attend with our group.
Please follow this link, complete/print the Criminal History, Child Abuse, and Wilson Volunteer forms, and return to the office. It takes about an hour of your time to finish, but it is valid at Wilson School District for up to 5 years from the date you requested the clearances. There is no cost to you as long as you make sure to select "volunteer" as your reason to request your clearances.
Please contact Mrs. VanOstenbridge at email@example.com with questions.
Fun Run - Friday, May 26
This year’s Cornwall Terrace Fun Run will be held on May 26th with a rain date set for May 30th!! Things will be a little different than in years past. We are looking for 100% student participation. Instead of sending home sponsor sheets, we will be asking each family to donate $5 per child. Once the child’s $5 is received, their name will be entered into a raffle to win Dorney Park or Hershey Park tickets. With 100% participation this gives EVERY child at CT the opportunity to win. Families can also donate additional money if they choose. On May 22-25, we will be selling grade/color coordinated “sneakers” with a lollipop for $.50 . Sneakers will be hung in the cafeteria and we’ll see which grade has the most sneakers!
One class from each group: K-1, 2-3, and 4-5 will win an ice cream party for the most “sponsor” money raised! Class sizes will be taken into account when selecting winners.
Grade level shirt colors are as follows:

Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) Program
We are thrilled to continue Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students), a nationally recognized program that has brought hundreds of thousands of fathers and father figures into our nation's schools. The goals are to provide positive male role models for all students just by being present and active in the school and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.
Success is a result of participation, and we need you! Who are you? You are fathers, step-fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father figure who will volunteer one day of your time during the school year to be a Watch D.O.G.S Dad.
What may I be asked to do?
How Do I Volunteer? Contact our new guidance counselor, Mr. Justin A. Foster at FosJus@share.wilsonsd.org or 610-670-0180 X3057*

Please sign up for CT Cafeteria Volunteers 2016-2017! In an effort to provide more opportunities for you to spend time in school with your children and give a HUGE helping hand to our younger friends during lunch, we invite family members to join us during 1st and 2nd grade recess/lunch from 11:00 a.m. to noon. The success of our Watch DOGS dads program and feedback from other parents led us to extend this wonderful opportunity with more family members! Our little friends need help - a lot of help - reaching food in the lunch line and opening containers/food bags at their lunch table.
