The Wilton Public Library is hosting a theatre workshop in July!  The workshop is designed for students entering grades 3 through 7 and enrollments will be limited to twelve participants.  Students will engage daily in the developments of acting skills, creative drama, and rehearsals.  Participants will create a performance centered on a retelling of fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm.  This production will provide humorous twists on these classic tales.  There will also be two positions open for volunteers to assist with the workshop.  Volunteers must be at least 15 years old.  Dates for the workshop will be July 9th-14th and July 16th-20th from 8:30-11:00am, also July 20th from 4-7pm.  Participants must attend all days.  This workshop will be facilitated by Kim Neal Nofsinger.  The workshop will conclude with a performance on Friday, July 20th, at 6pm.  Applications are available at the library or on the library’s website  Applications must be submitted to the Wilton Library by May 11th.  For additional info on applying, please contact the Wilton Library at or by calling the library at 435-6710.

We will be offering Driver’s Education Class at Brookwood this summer.  Students interested in signing up may do so in the HS Office at this time.  The classroom hours will be held during summer school (July 9th-26th, 8-11:30am) & the behind the wheel w/ Driving Stars LLC will start next fall when school resumes.  Cost is $300.  Students have to be at least 14 & ½ at the time of the class in order to participate.  Class size is limited to 25 students (oldest to youngest). A letter has been sent home, the bottom portion needs to be filled in & sent back to school to ensure your child’s spot in the class. 

The Elementary Track-N-Field Day will be held on Wednesday, May 23rd, on the football field.  Grades 1st-3rd will start at 8:45; Grades 4th-6th will start approximately at 12:15.  Rain date is Tues, May 29th.


The Norwalk-Ontario-Wilton School District is looking into the possibility of doing online registration next school year for students (this would replace filling out multiple forms at the beginning of the year).  Online registration will be done through Family Access in Skyward.  In order for parents to be able to complete online registration they will need their username and password for Family Access.  Mrs. Watters in the high school office has all usernames and passwords.  Please contact her either by email or by phone 337-4401 to get your information.  If we do not have online registration in place, Family Access is still a great way to have access to your child’s grades, lunch account balance and attendance (to name a few).  Please watch for upcoming announcements.
