January 17 is also the first day for Kindergarten Registration for the 2020-2021 school year. Parents of children who were born in 2016 may register for school for September. If you or someone you know has a child that will be starting Kindergarten in September, please register at the Wilshire office between January 17 and February 7. Early registration is important as it helps us to appropriately plan for staffing and class sizes. You will need proof of child’s age (birth certificate or passport), and proof of address in the Wilshire area– two documents, one from each of the categories below showing the home address;
- Category A – notice of tax assessment, current rental/lease agreement, agreement to purchase including proof of purchase provided before the pupil attends the school, or property tax bill, and
- Category B – utility bill, bank statement or other official document.
Information session for Grade 1 entry into the French Immersion (FI) program will take place at Ventura Park P.S. this Thursday January 16, 2020 at 7 p.m.

Parents or guardians of Senior Kindergarten students entering Grade 1 in 2020, and wishing to enrol in the FI Program, who are living in the Wilshire school area, can visit or call the Wilshire office and request an Office Index Card – short version.

Parents or guardians then take this form, along with one piece of identification showing their address to the designated FI program location to register, between January 17 and February 7, 2020. Registration during this period is not first come, first served.
Late registrations are those submitted after February 7, 2020. Late registrations will be treated on a first- come, first-served basis and will be considered subsequent to registrations received during the registration period should overflow be necessary.
This is a reminder that from now until March Break, we will be having a gradual entry starting at 8:40. Students will be able to enter the school and go directly to their classrooms with supervision beginning at 8:40. Before 8:40, there is no supervision and students will not be allowed in the school. Please do not drop off or send your children to school before 8:40.
We have been informed by the City of Vaughan that the crossing guard who no normally monitors the crosswalk on Beverly Glen in front of the school is sick this week and there is no replacement. Please be mindful of this when you are driving to school and sending your children to school.
