Welcome to Wildwood School

 
2016-2017 Kindergarten Families

 

Next Thursday, June 2 is our Kindergarten classroom visit for our new students to Wildwood School.  As we continue to look at our numbers in morning and afternoon classes, we would request that you attend the am (9:00 – 10:00) or pm (1:00 – 2:00) that you had checked off on the registration form.

For next year classes, our Kindergarten afternoon numbers are high (27 students) and with the morning numbers we have created two classes with lower numbers (14 and 15 students).  If you have previously checked off (pm) and are able to have your child attend the morning classes, please call our secretary Jeanne Dawson and have her make the change. 

We look forward to seeing you and your child next week for their exploration of Kindergarten at Wildwood School. 

Next Week's Glance At Wildwood | May 27

ARCHIVES

1. Thank you to the Math Fair Club Leaders, Ms. Lall and Ms. Green, and all the students whom helped to coordinate the Math Fair. The Mathematicians did an awesome job presenting the problem and having the participants solve the problems. Thank you for challenging our minds!!

2. Wildwood School Activity Day Volunteers Needed: Wednesday, June 8th. Our annual Wildwood School Activity Day is quickly approaching and as with previous years we are trying to fill some volunteer positions to help run the BBQ portion of the day. As some of you may be aware, we prepare for approximately 700+ students, teachers and volunteers for lunch - it is a big job! Currently, we are seeking volunteers for the BBQ only. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090d48aeab28a3fb6-wildwood Thank you! Tracy Bell and Anne-Marie Hesse - Activity Day Coordinators

3. Thank you to School Council for supporting the Tennis expert, Willie that taught us tennis this past few weeks. We also appreciate being able to go to the Wildwood Community tennis courts and have some outdoor time playing on a real court! The Wildwood Community Association is offering summer tennis camps to interested participants. Please see the following link: http://mywildwood.ca/2016/04/27/wildwood-tennis-program-spring-summer-2016-2/

4. Privilege Day was such a success with a great deal of excitement and money raised for our Grade 6 Farewell and the Calgary Food Bank. Mr. Toews was the butler for Jonah in Grade three and Wren in Grade six during the afternoon. We will have the final amount of money raised in next Friday’s Week at a Glance.

5. Looking forward to having our next year Kindergarten students visit our school on Thursday, June 2 at 9:00 or 1:00. Our Kindergarten children from this year will go and visit a grade one class. The grade ones will share time with the Administration! Oh what fun we have!!!

6. See the messages from David Stevenson our Chief Superintendent of Schools and Our Board of Trustees

7. Have you picked up your Compost dirt! We would like to have all the Compost dirt picked up by the end of this week. Thanks for your support!

8. Please read this important letter from CBE Transportation Services. We are moving to a pre-registration system that will allow you to let us know if you plan to use yellow school bus services for the upcoming school year. Please complete transportation pre-registration online as soon as possible so Transportation can begin planning and communicate routes by the end of July 2016. Your transportation pre-registration is due by Monday, June 6, 2016. Please note: when filling out the Transportation Pre-Registration online for your child, you will need to answer a filter question ‘What school is my child designated to attend for the 2016/2017 school year? For example West Ridge students in grade 5/6 that will attend Wildwood School in Sept 2016 need to put West Ridge as that will be your designated school for 2016/2017 school year. Your start date will be Sept 6 2016.

Pre-Registration for transportation can be completed online through your My CBE Account.

Reading Tip: “Are we there yet?"
Use the time spent in the car or bus for wordplay. Talk about how jam means something you put on toast as well as cars stuck in traffic. How many other homonyms can your child think of? When kids are highly familiar with the meaning of a word, they have less difficulty reading it.

 

Have a great weekend!
Darren and Renée

Donations needed to support people from Fort McMurray

 

Hi Wildwood School Community,

 

Thank you to everyone for the wonderful donations to support the families in Fort McMurray.  At this point they are no longer accepting clothing donations.  We have been asked to donate the clothing items left to the Canadian Diabetes Association.  

They are still accepting food, water and toiletries!  We will deliver these items this week with the collection of items to be completed by this Friday.  If there continues to be a need we will put out the call again. 

 

The Red Cross is also accepting cash donations if you are interested in this.
Click to donate.

 

From all of us at Wildwood School in the Spirit of the Circle, Thank you!!!

Wildwood Grown Dirt

 

Good afternoon Wildwood School families, you once again have the opportunity to buy "Wildwood Grown Dirt"!

 

Our school has composted the most material of any school in CBE!!  We composted 71 603 pounds in one year!!! Our compost (papertowels etc.) has now turned to dirt!!!!  We are doing a fundraiser for families to have the opportunity to buy "Wildwood Grown Dirt"

 

Here is an order form.  Last Tuesday (Kindergarten on Friday), this notice/form was given to the youngest child in each family. All orders are due back to the school Wed. April 13, with the compost being delivered the week of May 18. The compost comes in a convenient 5 kg bag for $10.   

Seeing this final product will really help the students to understand why our composting work is valuable and important.  Go ahead and spread the word to the community, so that they can spread the compost :)

 

Thank you
