Staying in Touch – ¿Qué hay de nuevo? | June 2, 2017

 

Hola familias,
1. Deadline for Yellow Bus Transportation Service Pre-Registration:  Monday, June 5th::
This is a reminder of the importance of pre-registering for bussing services 2017-18 in order to provide route planners with the most accurate information about the bussing needs of our WOM community. Pre-registration must be completed by June 5th in order for your home address to be considered for September.  If there is even a remote chance that your family might require bussing, I advise you to pre-register.  You can cancel your registration, without penalty, should you not require the service (cancellation by October 31, 2017).  Transportation pre-registrations can be completed using My CBE Account New kindergarten students will require their CBE IDs.  Kindly call the main office to get that if you have yet to do so.
2. New Kindergarten/New Student Orientations:  Either June 7 from 2-3pm, or June 8 from 9:30-10:30AM.  New to WOM students are invited to the school during either one of these times to check out their new school!

3. Safety Patroller Picnic:   Thursday, June 8 at Heritage Park.  Thank you patrollers for keeping us safe!!!!!

4. Spuds Fundraiser:  This will be an ongoing fundraiser.  Check things out at spuds.ca!
5. Plants:  Thank you for participating in the fundraiser.  It was a huge success!
6.  Stampede Breakfast:   Be sure to mark your calendars for our end of year Stampede Breakfast, June 16, from 7:30-9:00A<
Have a wonderful weekend!

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.
