Staying in Touch – ¿Qué hay de nuevo? | Oct. 13, 2017
Thank you “Numero Uno”- To all our students and parents, thank you for your participation in our student/parent/teacher conferences!!! Please remember that conference time is not the only time that your child’s teacher is available to discuss student achievement. Please contact them at any time to arrange a mutually convenient time. We value you as partners in learning, and appreciate our relationships based on reciprocity of communication, and in support of your child’s success!
Thank you “Numero Dos”- To the parents who fed us over conferences, thank you for the amazing meals and treats…we are overwhelmed by your generosity!
No School: Monday is the Civic Election, and our system has set a system-wide PD day on this day. Many of our schools are polling stations, and are therefore open to the public all day. Summit Kids will use the library for programming. Many of our teachers, are accessing off-site PD opportunities on this day, and will not be at the school.
Fun Lunch- TUESDAY, October 17 (the first day after the long weekend): If you ordered lunch for your child(ren) you don’t need to pack a lunch!!!!! Thank you to Mrs. Batchelor, and her team of amazing volunteers for making this possible for children!
Congratulations Mrs Miles! Mrs Miles was the successful applicant to our Lead Lunchroom position, made vacant due to Mrs Backus’ increase in hours as our school secretary. We are confident that our lunchroom program will continue to be awesome under her leadership.
¡ Que tengan un fin de semana maravilloso!
P.S. Don't forget our School Council Meeting and Picture Day are both coming up...and are on the same day! October 23

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.
Kindergarten Registration for the 2017-18 school year is ongoing. Children must be at least four years old on or before March 1 to start kindergarten in September of the same calendar year. You have to register in person at your school with proof of residence, your child's name, date of birth and citizenship. Visit the CBE Registration page for more information and for the forms you'll need. More information is available on the CBE Kindergarten page.
