Spring Break Meals for Students

Nutrition Services Supervisor, Paula Angelucci often says hunger doesn’t take a vacation and that’s why she pulled out all the stops to make certain Colonial’s students received five breakfast and five lunch meals before Spring Break. Angelucci reached out to a Pennsylvania company that agreed to her request for their pre-assembled boxed meals. On Wednesday at 6 AM district maintenance/custodial, transportation and nutrition services staff worked together to unload a tractor-trailer filled with 28 pallets, containing 3,000 boxed meals.

“This massive emergency feeding effort was truly a “Power of WE” moment,  we could not have successfully pulled off providing 29,340 meals to our community children without it!” Angelucci said.

The Grab and Go Meal distribution will resume on Wednesday, April 15th.

We will continue to follow all CDC guidelines to stay safe and healthy.

Let the Remote Learning Begin!

The first official week of remote learning got underway with teachers eager to reconnect with their students. Keeping students academically engaged is not only vital to their learning process, but it also keeps them occupied in a positive way during this unprecedented time in our country. 

Spirit Days at Wilbur

Since students can’t be at school, Wilbur has a Virtual Spirit Day for every day of the week until the Wilbur Wildcats can return. Teachers, students, staff and families are encouraged to post pictures with the designated theme for the day. On National Zoo Day, zoo animals and favorite pets were shared.
