Some Final Updates for the Year!

Once again this year has flown by for staff and students alike! Before we wish everyone a happy and restful summer holidays there is quite a bit to finish off at Woodhaven Middle School.   Please read on to learn more about our upcoming school events for the final few weeks.

Provincial Achievement Tests… are underway!

If you have a child in grade 6 or 9, you are very likely aware that your child has been completing the Provincial Achievement Tests (PAT’s) this week and into early next week. You can find the entire PAT schedule on our school calendar.

PAT’s provide valuable information to students, parents and our school staff. They provide one more piece of assessment evidence that is used in determining students marks. Additionally, teachers and administration examine the data from these exams in the fall to determine areas of strength as well as areas that we can continue to focus our efforts on within our teaching and learning.

If you have any questions about these tests, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or Ms. Enders or myself in the school office.

Awards Celebration

You should have recently received an email reminding you that our Annual Awards Celebration will be happening on the final day of the school year, Thursday, June 27th from 10:30 a.m. to approximately 12:00 noon.

While we are happy to have the opportunity to recognize our students throughout the year through programs such as our Pack Pride and Athlete of the Month, to name just a few, this final celebration provides one last opportunity to acknowledge the efforts of our kids.

Students who will be receiving an award will be provided with a letter to be taken home at the end of the week. All parents and community members are welcome to join us for this celebration. Should you have any questions, please reach out to us at the school.

Grade 9 Farewell

If you have a child in Grade 9, you have certainly heard about our fast approaching Grade 9 Farewell Celebration. At this time you should have purchased your tickets for this event, which will be coming home soon with your child.

We are excited to celebrate with our students and families and look forward to seeing you there on Tuesday, June 25th from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. in our school gymnasium.

Joint Chapel

We are eagerly anticipating our final joint chapel of the school year as one more opportunity to celebrate and worship with our fellow MCP students at Brookwood School.

Please consider joining us on Friday, June 21st at 9:00 a.m. in the Woodhaven Middle School gymnasium.

While these are a few of the big events coming our way, we are excited about the many field trips, National Indigenous Day and several other events that are helping us to wind up the current school year.

Until next time,

Shaye Patras
