School Wide Reading Program
Wishart’s school wide reading program begins on October 1st. Students are encouraged to read for 10 minutes each night (with or without parent/guardian) and track their reading progress. Every 25 nights, students hand in a completed reading sheet and receive a prize for having reached a reading milestone. Your child’s first reading sheet and corresponding instructions will be coming home next week in preparation for the program’s start date.
The first spirit day of the year takes place on September 29th. Students and staff will be participating in Jersey Day, which will coincide nicely with the Terry Fox Run that afternoon. This is a great opportunity to have fun at school around a different theme each month. These days were highly anticipated last year.
Wishart Elementary School will be holding the Terry Fox Run on Thursday, September 29th. The run will be preceded by an assembly, where we will talk of Terry’s dream to find a cure for cancer, and the positive impact he has had on the world. With that in mind, our goal is to raise $1000. Donations will be collected at the office.
Cross Country is beginning for students in Grade 1- 5. the two races are scheduled for September 28th and October 5th at Juan de Fuca. Encourage your child to participate; thanks to Mrs. Telford, Ms. DeJongh, Mrs. Agnew and Mrs. Gill for providing this opportunity to students. Permission forms are required to be completed prior to the races.
Lifetouch Studios will be here September 30th to take student photos. Information regarding individual photos should have been received, and more will come home with the proofs (various packages and prices). Remember to wear your best smile!
School Information forms came home with your child this week. Please ensure all information is correct, that it is signed and returned to the school by September 23rd. This information is to ensure we have all the up to date information for student contacts and emergency information.
As per last year-any parents volunteering to chaperone any field trips please note that a Criminal Record Check needs to have been completed and on file at the school office. If you are driving any students in your private vehicle you will need to complete the Criminal Records Check as well as a driver’s abstract and provide a copy of your valid driver’s license and insurance. These are now required for all volunteers when driving for field trips. Please see the attached information. Thank you again for volunteering your time so our children can have the best educational opportunities.
Important reminder to please inform the school of any medical issues and/or allergies. We strive to provide a safe, healthy environment.
If your student will be absent from school please call the office at 250-478-9528 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to notify of their absence.
