Staying in Touch – ¿Qué hay de nuevo? | June 26, 2017


Hello Families,


1. Last Day of School: The last day of school for students is Wednesday, June 28.  Students will be dismissed for the summer holiday at 3:27PM.


2. Report Cards:  Will be distributed in the afternoon of Wednesday, June 28th.  If your child will not be here on Wednesday, until the end of day, please leave a self-addressed stamped envelop with Mrs. Backus.  Report cards will be mailed to you.


3. Appeals Day:  Thursday, June 29 is our official “Appeals” day.  Teachers will be available to answer questions regarding report cards between 9:00AM and 2:00PM.  Our main office will be closed at 2:00PM on Thursday.  If you have questions about your child’s report card, but cannot come to school on that day, please contact your child’s teacher.


4. Organizational Day: Friday, June 30 is an organizational day for staff.  While the office will be open during regular office hours (8:30AM -4:30PM), staff will be involved in meetings and readying the school for September.  Only through a pre-arranged appointment will they be available to parents and students.


5. Lost and Found:  All unclaimed items, by Friday, June 30 @ 12:00NOON will be packaged and donated to charity.  The lost and found is overflowing…please check it out if you are in the school.


6. Farewell Assembly:  Our final gathering for the 2016-17 School Year will be in the afternoon Tuesday, June 27.  The assembly will start at 1:30PM.  Special focus will be directed to our grade 6 students as we say good-bye to them, as well as to staff who will not be returning to WOM in September.  Following the assembly, parents of Grade 6 students are invited to a ‘farewell reception’, which will allow for lots and lots of photos!


7. Not returning to WOM next September?:  We would appreciate knowing this information ASAP.  Student numbers affect how we organize for learning.  Also, if you advise us that your child will not be returning in September now, we can help with transfer processes so that your child’s new start in his/her new school will be as smooth as possible.


And the final countdown begins!  I hope to see you over the next couple of days!

Kindergarten Registration 2017-18


Spanish Bilingual Kindergarten-Grade 1

Application to our Spanish bilingual program, kindergarten and grade 1 is now closed.  A lottery for all available spaces was held on February 15th.  Applicants will be contacted the week of February 21 as to the status of their application.


Applicants for this program who apply after February 15th will be placed on our contact list.


Regular Program Kindergarten, Grade 1, and 2 (and grade 3, 2017-18)

While we currently do not offer these grades at WO Mitchell, due to lack of interest from designated families, we continue to accept registrations for all these grades for the upcoming school year.  While registration for our regular program is ongoing, we have, in the past, made decisions regarding feasibility of these regular program classes by Spring Break.  If you live within our regular program catchment area, kindly advise us of your intent to register for these grades by March 22, 2017 so that we are able to make decisions with the best information possible.


Open House:  May 25th, 2017 at 7:00PM

An Open House will be held on May 25th, at 7:00PM for parents of successful applicants, where parents will have opportunities to participate in a school presentation focused on transitions for success, as well as meet our amazing instructional staff and members of our vibrant School Council.  Parents will also have opportunities to have a guided tour of our school at this time.  This will be an adult only evening.


New students will have opportunities to visit their new school, and see their new classrooms in June.
