It is hard to believe that the month of May is upon us. Teachers and students are continuing to work hard to ensure all of the learning outcomes are covered by year’s end. The staff appreciates your continued support at home to ensure that homework, studying and reading programs are being completed. Our grade six students will be starting to write their Provincial Achievement Exams in May.
There are a number of activities happening in May. I would like to thank all of our parent volunteers that have given their time to help out the Wye School Community this year. Your support has been phenomenal and is much appreciated. The Wye School Council will host its regular meeting on May 24th at 10:30 in the new portable. Immediately after, at 11:30, the Annual General Meeting will occur. Elections will be held at this time and we encourage all parents to come out to this meeting. The next WSPSA meeting will be May 17th at noon in the new portable. Please feel free to come out and hear what the fundraising society is working on. The Carnival takes place on Friday, May 27th from 5-8pm. This will be a great evening and we hope your family can join us.
I hope everyone enjoys the May long weekend and you have the opportunity to rest and relax with family and friends.

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.
