Be a Wee Read Volunteer!
Support Our Students with Reading!
Our school is excited to be implementing Wee Read, an eight week program to foster the love of books and strengthen our ECS and Grade 1 students’ foundations for reading and success at school.
Volunteers are the heart of this program. If you are interested in volunteering an hour of your time a week to read with our ECS and Grade 1 students, please go to Mme Kulmatycki’s eTeacher page “Be a Wee Read Volunteer!” at http://ardrossanelementary.ca/eteachers/4130/wee-read for more information and the sign up form.
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.
