Hello everyone. It is hard to believe that I am already in my third month here at Wye Elementary School. It has been such a pleasure to get to know you and your children. If you are in the school for any reason please do not hesitate to stop by the office and say hi. 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.
A big thank-you to Mrs. Ackerman and her parent volunteers, Carol Hiebert and Laraine Zimka, for their help running 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!
EIPS is very excited about the funding recently announced for a new school in Heritage Hills. This will be a new Wye Elementary School. Our first public consultation meeting will take place on May 10 from 7:00 – 8:30 in the school gym. I am sure you will have questions so please stop in and let us share with you what we know at this point in time. Thank you for all your support for Wye Elementary School. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call or stop by for a visit.

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.
