When Can My Child Start Kindergarten?
To register for kindergarten in the 2019-20 school year, your child must be five years old on or before Dec. 31, 2019.
We would like to thank all our wee read volunteers that read with our kindergarten and grade one students since October. Thank you for bringing the joy of reading to our young students! You were such a benefit to the teachers and students and we are thankful for you and the time you devoted to this wonderful program.
Be a wee read volunteer!
If you are interested in being a wee read volunteer, we are starting with new groups of kindergarten and grade one students in January. We are looking for volunteers who can come to the school for about 30 minutes, once a week, for eight consecutive weeks to read with two children, talk about books, and play games that support literacy skills. If you are interested in being part of this fun and meaningful opportunity, or know of someone who might be there will be a volunteer training session held in the library on Monday, January 21st from 6:30 pm-7:30 pm. We hope that you will consider partnering with us on this. Please let Mrs. Tomkins email@example.com or the office know if you can come to the training session or if you have any questions.
If you are not able to attend this volunteer session at Westboro, there will be a community wee read training session on January 8th from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm at Highlands Library, 6710 118 Avenue Edmonton AB T5B 0P3.
If you are interested in volunteering, please register on the Alberta Reads Network website as follows:
- Go to http://albertareadsnetwork.com/get-involved/volunteer/
- Scroll down to “Read to Children”
- Click on “signup to volunteer”
- Please complete the pop-up registration form selecting “wee Read”
- A follow up email will follow with further details on the training.
Families are 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 schools fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
Stand As One
The students of Westboro Elementary School put their hearts into creating this special song and video that pays tribute to survivors of residential schools. We hope to spread the message of hope and love, and above all, encourage others to come together to “Stand as One” in our journey towards reconciliation.
