Weekly update – March 24

Dear families,

Please mark your calendars for a movie night on Friday, April 28. We are still waiting on the movie, but I promise it will be a great one! More information will be available in the next few weeks.

Thank you to Ms. Charlton for organizing guest athletes from the University of Waterloo. The athletes inspired our students about their keys to success: set goals, work hard, have a positive attitude, have positive role models, and make choices.

Andrea Michelutti, Principal

Kindergarten Registration

We are delighted to welcome your child to Kindergarten. The purpose of Kindergarten is to help build a strong foundation for learning in a safe and caring play-based environment. Kindergarten promotes the social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development of all children. The Kindergarten program is based on the understanding that children develop at their own pace. Children in Kindergarten are provided with a secure, respectful and nurturing environment, where their developmental needs can be supported through varied experiences.

We are asking that all families register their children before March 30 to ensure we have the correct number of classes for the upcoming school year. Please share the registration information with your neighbours.

The online registration is open for students born in 2013 for Junior Kindergarten. Please visit this website https://www.wrdsb.ca/kindergarten/its-time-to-register/#.WJOniNIrJeM.

After you register online, please call the school to book an appointment. Appointments are available between 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. You will need to bring the following documents when you come to the school to complete the registration:
