SPRING INTO HEALTH!

On May 1st from 6 – 8 pm we will be hosting a family wellness night for students and parents. Come out, get some great lunch options for your kids! There are also some cool door Prizes!

Some of the topics will be:

  • Build your own Healthy Lunch – students will work with parents to create and take home their own Bento Box lunch for the next day!
  • Sugar Shockers! – Do you know how much sugar is in the drinks you send to school? We will have free water bottles for the first 200 students!
  • Get fit together – participate in a family Yoga session
  • Learn more about mental wellness for your children and talk with our school Social Worker
  • Gather resources about the many community organizations that can support you and your family in your quest for wellness

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

Congratulations to all our young students who celebrate their First Holy Communion this weekend at St Francis Parish. We are so proud of all of you as you continue your faith journey.

 

 

CAT-4 ASSESSMENTS FOR GRADE 7 STUDENTS:

In the period of April 30 – May 4, 2018, all Grade 7 students in the WCDSB will complete the CAT-4 assessment. The CAT-4 is a national standardized achievement test designed to measure achievement in the basic skills commonly taught in schools across Canada.

 

MULTI-YEAR STRATEGIC PLANNING:

The WCDSB Multi Year Strategic Plan (MYSP) 2015-2018 was approved by the Board of Trustees in December 2015.

https://www.wcdsb.ca/wp-content/uploads/sites/36/2017/03/WCDSB-MYSP-2016-18.pdf

We are currently in the process of gathering input to assist both with an updated evaluation of the current MYSP and to help lay the foundation for the creation of our new MYSP. We are inviting all staff, students, parents and community members to complete the MYSP Survey (one per family). Your input is valued and appreciated.

Please take the time to complete the survey by following the link below:

The survey will close this weekend.  We want to hear the voice of our WCDSB Community – this is one of the most important surveys we complete.
