Thank you for all of your support in helping your child with their technology this year.   If you have borrowed a WCW school device, we will be collecting school Chromebook/Devices Thursday, June 30th 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. and July 4th 9:00-2:00   Please label the device with your child’s first and last name.  


Tuesday night, we enjoyed a Grade 8 Celebration at the school.  It was wonderful to bring together students, families and staff.  We are very proud of all of our graduates and excited as they enter high school.  We wish you the best in all of your future endeavours. 


The end of a school year is a time to celebrate accomplishments, share our appreciation and also a time for best wishes. This year we will be saying thank you and best wishes to: Courtney Drewry, Marlese Cunaj, Janna Tuckwell, Elizabeth Fraresso, Jayson Sy, Danielle Legros, Jamie Barnes, Darcy Schneider, Jenna Boyle and Mark Pettipiere.  They have all played an important role this year at our school.  We are sending out our well wishes to Holly Masters as she begins her new position at JD Hogarth Public School and Ryan Meunier as he begins his retirement.  From all of us at William C. Winegard Public School, we wish you all the best!

At the same time, we would like to welcome back Becky Cambell who will be returning from the Elementary Remote School. Joining the Wolf Pack will be Steve Rane, Sarah Rossier, Alice Foley, Marcia Piquette, Jesse Morris, Marie Dunkel, Robyn Whiteside, and Gayton Fairfield.  Welcome to the Wolf Pack! 

Tentative Organization

A tentative organization for the 2022/2023 school year is included in this newsletter.  The organization is based on our enrollment in February and subject to change. Should there be further changes in enrollment, particularly in September, we may be directed to undergo a school reorganization.

Congratulations to Mr.Hopkins class who were our participation winners for our last Domino’s Pizza night of the year. Our pizza night in May raised $258. (If you experienced issues when ordering, thank you for persevering.) We introduced a new fundraising program this Spring with Plantables. Thank you to all that ordered seedlings and shared our link with family and friends. Your plant orders raised $348.80 towards our bottle refill station.

Do you have an idea for future fundraising? We are always interested in new ideas for our Winegard community. Please send a quick email to [email protected]

A big thank you to all who have supported our ventures this past year. We couldn’t do it without you! Have a safe and happy summer and we’ll see you in September.
