I hope that everyone had a restful and relaxing spring break. I have enjoyed hearing from the students about all of their adventures since their return. Thank you to all who were able to attend parent-student-teacher conferences that were held just before the break. We appreciate you joining us to discuss your child’s progress to date.
Thank-you to Mrs. Ackerman and our parent volunteer, Mrs. Bos, for their help run the book fair. I would also like to thank all of our families that stopped by the book fair and supported this event. It is great to see so many families excited about reading. Proceeds from the book fair are used to enrich our own collection at Wye Elementary School. Thank-you for your wonderful support!
We had the opportunity this year to participate in the pilot report card project. Parents have the opportunity to provide feedback on the new report card one more time before the end of the year. We have posted a link on our school’s main webpage to a survey that will provide you an opportunity to share your thoughts. Please take the time to share your reflections with us.
Wye School had the good fortune of being part of the Oil King’s Adopt-a-School program again this year. Mr. Grant King and Mr. Lube generously provided our schools with tickets to the Oil Kings home games. Throughout the school year, student names were drawn to attend an Oil King game. It was great to see the excitement and enthusiasm when student names were drawn. For some students, this was their first opportunity to watch the Oil Kings in action. The staff and students of Wye School would like to thank Mr. Lube and Mr. King for this fabulous opportunity.
Just a quick reminder the next Wye School Parent Association meeting will on Friday, April 29th at noon in the new portable. We invite all interested parents to join us for these meetings.

Parent Survey Results
2015–2016 Parent Survey
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is committed to ensuring all parents and guardians of students within the Division have a chance to share their thoughts on the overall performance of their school and the Division. One of the ways EIPS ensure its parent’s voices are heard is by conducting regular surveys.
In November, the Division invited parents and guardians to participate in an online parent survey. They were asked 15 questions about the quality of teaching, school leadership, parent engagement, and more. The online survey received an impressive 19 per cent response rate, with more than 3,170 responses from parents and guardians across the Division. Throughout the coming months, we will use the results of the parent survey to help inform its school and Division planning.
The complete results report, including summaries of participation and responses by question, is now available.
