ImagesWelcome back and we hope you had a great break and stayed healthy.  In December, we recognized Gratitude and it was a wonderful month of celebration, recognition of hard work, time together and giving.  Together we enjoyed a virtual assembly with class presentations focussed on the theme Shining Brightly. A special thank you to all of our families who donated to Guelph Food Bank.  As a school community, we donated over 2000 lbs of non perishable food items.  It was the most received from a school or business.  Way to go Wolves!!

Kindergarten registration for the 2021/2022 school year takes place from January 4th – 21st.  All Junior and Senior Kindergarten students new to the UGDSB must pre-register online. (SK students who are attending a UGDSB school for JK do not need to pre-register online).  Pre-registering online starting January 4 will save families time by allowing you to fill out important forms and documentation when it’s convenient for you. 


Next Virtual School Council Meeting:

FOREST OF READING will begin at the end of the month. The Forest of Reading® is Canada’s largest recreational reading program and an initiative of the Ontario Library Association (OLA).
