Welcome back to Wye School! We had a smooth start to the school year. Students seem to be settling into classes nicely.
We are looking forward to making this year a great success and we invite all parents and students to join us on September 14th from 6:30-7:30 for our Meet the Staff Evening. Parents and students can head directly to the classrooms and say hello and meet your child’s teacher.
Parents, we need your help. Both the fundraising society and the school council did not have parents step up in June to fill the Executive positions that are open. Please mark your calendar our first Fundraising Association meeting which will be Tuesday, September 13th at noon in the new portable. There are a number of executive positions that need to be filled to ensure that the fundraising society can continue their great work. The first Wye School Council organizational meeting will be held after meet the teacher night at 7:30 in the Learning Commons. There is also a number of executive positions available on this council.
Please continue to check our website on a regular basis for updated information as well as your child’s teacher e-page regarding specific class news and events.
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.

School Supply Lists
To assist with the purchasing of school materials, we have compiled a School Supply List.
Families will be invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30-days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay school fees is by using ACORN. Simply login to PowerSchool and go to “Student Fees,” there you will be able to view your fees and pay them online using Visa, MasterCard, or INTERAC—when available from your financial institution.
You can find more information about school fees at www.eips.ca/schools/school-fees.

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.
