A Fond Farewell

Wilmington School District 209-U administration, staff members, students, and families would like to share their genuine thanks to staff members that are retiring. We will truly miss Sherry Shelley, Kathy Daniels, and Joel Brownlee for everything they have done over their years of service to our schools. We wish them years of relaxation, adventure, and happiness!

Summer Reminders

Here are a few items to make sure you leave the 2018 school year prepared for the summer and 2018-2019 school year:

  • Register your student online for the 2018-2019 school term. Do you need your student’s snapcode? Call your building secretary or the district office.
  • Make your student’s doctor appointments for immunizations, physicals, dentist, or eyes early to avoid the last minute rush.
  • Refer to the Wilmington Free Press Advocate throughout the summer regarding athletics try-outs.
  • Send in your summer camp sign-ups along with payment to the WHS front office by Friday, May 25.
Get Involved

Believe it or not, our kids really do grow up right before our eyes! Make the most of the time you have with them while they are still living under your roof. Plan ahead for next year, and find ways to get involved with your child’s school. The benefits are numerous as you will get to know the students, faculty, and staff that surround your child daily. You can help raise funds to improve our schools, send our students on field trips, or for any number of charitable causes our schools donate to each year. You can also help spread school spirit. Consider looking into the following volunteer opportunities for the 2018-2019 school year:

  • Book fairs 
  • WE PTO
  • Music boosters 
  • Athletic boosters 
  • Volley for a Cure 
  • Set and costume design for WMS and WHS plays
