We look forward to seeing you this year!
You soon will be inundated with school forms, the joys of a new year school start-up! You can get a head-start by filling out the Volunteer Form online here: WPS Volunteer Form 2015/2016. Filling out this form online greatly assists our Volunteer Coordinator, who otherwise has to input all of this information herself and assures accuracy. By filling out this form, you will be contacted when volunteer opportunities arise. Also, this is a quick way to communicate timely information to parents. We will never use this information for anything other than school related business.
New Parent Orientation Evening
For parents new to our school, we invite you to join the staff and administration and school council to the New Parent Orientation evening being held Wednesday September 9th from 7:00 - 8:00 pm. This is a quick and informative way to meet the people that spend their days with your children, as well as to learn what happens on a daily basis and other important information.
First School Council Meeting
All parents are welcome to join us at our meetings. Our first meeting is Tuesday September 15th. We generally meet in the Learning Commons (the library) on the second floor. Meetings begin at 7:00 pm and run until 8:30 pm. These are informative meetings where our principal, Dr. Leslie Robertson and assistant principal, Ms. Susan Faulkner, share what is happening at the school. We often have special guests that are of interest to parents. We would love to have you join us!
One of our major fundraisers of the year is our casino. We have been assigned the dates of Thursday October 8th and Friday October 9th this year. More information will be posted about this shortly, but please consider volunteering for this important fundraiser. Last year we received just over $70,000.00 for our casino!
Our other major fundraiser is our magazine sales. This has been a very popular and successful fundraiser for our school for many years. It will be launching also on Thursday October 8th and will run until October 29th. We hope you will support your student in this endeavour.
