    Voluntary Enrollment

    This year parents will be able to enroll their children for this important coverage by logging on to www.bobmccloskey.com.

    We’ve attached a flyer that can be posted to the schools’ websites which will provide parents with the information they need to log-in and enroll. Once on our web-site, the parents will be able to view and print the complete brochure as well as an ID card. Parents may enroll either by printing the enrollment form and mailing it along with a check or money order to Bob McCloskey Insurance, or by paying by credit card on line through our PayPal enrollment form.

    Due to decreasing enrollment and increasing printing/shipping expenses it is important to note that we will no longer be sending individual flyers to be distributed to each student. By making this change we are able to continue to offer the same affordable premium rates to parents.

    2019-2020 Voluntary Rates

    $500,000 School Time Coverage………………………………………$18.00

    $500,000 24 Hour Wrap Around Coverage……………………………$93.50

    New WHS teachers and Administrators in the High School library

    Tuesday, August 20th was the first day of school for the eleven new teachers at the High School. There are twenty-five newly hired teachers across the whole district. Maria Coleman, Director of Human Resources welcomed the group and shared that the newly hired teachers in the room represented ‘The top 5% of our applicant pool of 550 applicants.’ She also shared ‘Sitting among you, valedictorian from Wilton high school, a Fulbright scholar and a professional musician whose music was featured at the Sochi Olympics. You are the best of the best and you should feel very proud to be here. We hope Wilton will become your forever home.’

    Superintendent Dr. Kevin Smith spoke next, he encouraged all new staff to search for the twitter hashtag #WiltonWayCT.  “I challenge and invite you to visit it and post to it, it will make your day.” In what has become an annual tradition in the Smith Family, Dr Smith asked his own children for their advice for the new teachers. Dr Smith’s five children range in ages from 3rd grade to a High School Freshman and their wise words were:

    • We know how hard your jobs as teachers are.
    • Get to know your students.
    • Be creative.
    • Play lots of games, smile and give out lots of candy.

    Chris Finkelstein, Chair of the Wilton Board of Education spoke next:

    ‘As you begin your work, you are joining a community that enthusiastically embraces its teachers and supports it schools. Wilton teachers develop strong relationships with families. In our family, we frequently exchange stories about teachers who mean a lot to us. Our community shows support through schools in many ways – investing in them, supporting them on the football field, attending music and drama performances. This is an exciting time to be starting your tenure, teachers are the center of everything’

    Chuck Smith, Assistant Superintendent of Instruction and Andrea Leonardi, Assistant Superintendent of Special Services also spoke reinforcing the days theme of fostering relationships, increasing student engagement and helping students to take risks to meet their goals.

    ‘Success is when students come in smiling, telling you stories and relating something you taught them to something that happened to them in the world outside of the classroom’ said Leonardi.

    The meeting ended with Dr Smith presenting each new hire with their Class of ’19 Wilton shirt. New teachers then returned to their own school to continue their orientation day.
