Principal's Message

It is hard to believe that we are now beginning the last month of the school year. Once again, we have had a busy school year. It is amazing to see how much our students have grown and we are proud of their ongoing academic achievement. June still brings us our PAT examinations for our grade six students as well as final assessments. All of our students will be working very hard in their studies until the end of June to achieve their goals. In addition, we are also looking forward to several fun culminating events including field trips, year-end picnics as well as the Leadership Celebration.

We concluded our Oodles of Noodles project with a huge domino effect outside in our front parking lot. I was extremely proud of our students, staff and community as the Noodle project was a total team effort. Everyone participated from the bringing in the boxes to setting them up outside. Thank you to all students, staff, parents and community for your support. We are an incredible team!

A big thank-you to the organizing committee for the carnival this year. We always have such positive feedback from the students about how much they enjoy carnival and it would not have been possible without the support of the committee and the all of the parent volunteers who manned booths during the event. Thank-you for such a great Wye School community event.

We would like to thank all of our parents for their tremendous support during the school year. You have generously helped us by volunteering in our classrooms, supporting our fundraiser, volunteering your time to help with School Council and their committees, Wye School Support Parent Association and their committees and most important working with your children every day to support their learning.

A couple of reminders that the Leadership Celebration is occurring on Tuesday, June 26th for all K-6 students at Wye School. Further information will be shared by classroom teachers. The Wye School Fundraising Association will be holding its annual general meeting on June 8th from 2:00 – 3:00 pm. All parents are welcome to attend this meeting.

Enjoy a great summer break everyone!!!

Parent Survey Results

2016–2017 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.

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. 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.
