During these challenging times, it is important that we, as a community, support one another and let each other know that we are all in this together. So, in that spirit, the Village of Thornton and Wolcott School are asking our residents and businesses to join us in displaying encouraging posters/signs/banners in windows to promote the safety and health of all. It's also a fun way to add some cheer and share some smiles!
So, get out those art supplies and let's see your creative side. We can't wait to see what you come up with!
Dear Wolcott Families,
As you may be aware, Governor Pritzker has extended the stay-at-home order through April 30th. This means that Wolcott School will remain closed during this time. Students are expected to continue to do the remote learning activities assigned by the teacher. Considering the length of time students have been out of the classroom, it is imperative that they complete the assigned work. If they do not complete the work then they will be assigned an incomplete until the work is done. I encourage you and your child to contact the teacher if they have any questions or concerns.The Wolcott Office is open Monday-Friday from 10:00 - 1:00 to pick up any packets that your teacher has prepared for you.
Meals are also available Monday-Friday from 11:00 - 12:30 at Wolcott School or the parking lot of the Thornton Recreation Center. You are able to get lunch for that day and breakfast for the next day. On Friday, you are able to get meals for Saturday.
Estimadas familias de Wolcott:
Como ya sabrá, el gobernador Pritzker ha extendido la orden de quedarse en casa hasta el 30 de abril. Esto significa que la Escuela Wolcott permanecerá cerrada durante este tiempo. Se espera que los estudiantes continúen haciendo las actividades de aprendizaje remoto asignadas por el maestro. Teniendo en cuenta el tiempo que los estudiantes han estado fuera del aula, es imperativo que completen el trabajo asignado. Si no completan el trabajo, se les asignará un incompleto hasta que el trabajo esté terminado. Le recomiendo a usted y a su hijo que se comuniquen con el maestro si tienen alguna pregunta o inquietud. La oficina de Wolcott está abierta de lunes a viernes de 10:00 a 1:00 para recoger cualquier paquete que su maestro haya preparado para usted.
Las comidas también están disponibles de lunes a viernes de 11:00 a 12:30 en Wolcott School o en el estacionamiento del Centro de Recreación Thornton. Puede almorzar ese día y desayunar al día siguiente. El vie.rnes, puede obtener comidas para el sábado.

The 7th Grade Class worked on a performance arts piece of "Theme for English B" by Langston Hughes in their Communication Arts Class for Black History Month. They did a wonderful job representing Langston Hughes work and their interpretation put a lot of meaning to the words. The 7th grade shared their work with the school by putting on performances for each class and for parents that came in to see it. Great job 7th Grade and thank you to Mrs. Wyman for the instruction that inspired them.
