As the school year begins we are happy to have many returning and new staff members with us. We have had a smooth start to the school year. Our enrollment has stayed about the same as last year so once again the school is very full.
A big welcome goes out to the new staff members that are joining us this year. Mrs. MacNutt is our new school counsellor. She will be at Wye school every day in the morning. Ms. McTurk is teaching a grade 5 class and joins us from Winn Ferguson School in Fort Saskatchewan. Mrs. Drury is teaching grade 1 and previously taught at Lakeland Ridge School. Mrs. Kent is teaching grade 6 and joins us from Colchester Elementary. Ms. Israelson is also teaching grade 6 with Mrs. Kent. She will be teaching during the afternoon on Day 1 and all day on day 4. Ms. Wildeman is returning from Maternity leave and will be teaching mornings with the grade 3’s.
We are looking forward to making this year a great success and we invite all parents and students to join us on September 10th for our Meet the Staff Evening. We will gather at 7:00 p.m. in the gymnasium for an introduction of staff and then students and parents will have an opportunity to go to classrooms and meet your child’s teacher.
Please mark your calendar our first Parent Council organizational meeting will be Wednesday, September 24th at 6:30. We are still looking for a Parent Council chair and vice chair for the upcoming school year. The Parent Council plays an important role in the life of our school and we strongly encourage parents to come out and become involved. On the 24th we will also be asking parent’s input on the 2015-2016 school calendar. A calendar consultation presentation will occur at this meeting.
Please continue to check our website on a regular basis for updated information as well as your child’s teacher Epage regarding his or her specific class news.
We are looking forward to a successful school year. We hope to have an opportunity to meet everyone at the Meet the Teacher evening. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teachers or administration.
