Multicultural Night 2019

posted Feb 5, 2019, 2:52 PM by Natasha Crompton-Dunn   [ updated Feb 5, 2019, 2:52 PM ]


Thursday March 7th, 2019 from 5:30 to 8:00pm


This event is a fun and interactive experience at Pilgrim Wood where students, staff and families set up stands showcasing all of the different cultures at Pilgrim Wood. The stands represent their heritage and include the community in the fun. There are games, food, books, and so much more! If allergies are a concern for you, an ingredients list will be provided for every food or drink. All foods will be nut-free. There is no need to bring money along with you, as this year’s Multicultural Night is complementary!


If you would like to participate and run a stand please complete the form below before Friday February 15th, 2019. If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact Mrs. Arndt (

Currently the students in Mrs. Arndt’s grade 5/6 class are working on planning the events for Pilgrim Wood’s 4th annual Multicultural Night (mark your Image result for multicultural flag buntingcalendars for March 7th). We have taken inventory of all the flags that currently hung in the front hall of our school. A group of students have created a survey to find out what flags are missing. The survey lists the current flags and will only need to be completed if your flag is not there. Please click on the survey link below.

PW Updates

posted Jan 24, 2019, 11:11 AM by Natasha Crompton-Dunn   [ updated Jan 29, 2019, 2:43 PM ]

Dear Pilgrim Wood Families:

Our Vice Principal Mrs. Limanni has extended her medical leave until the end of March. We have Mrs. McCauley with us until March 30th. Mrs. McCauley is a retired Principal from our board and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our PW Team!  We would like to welcome her to PW!

We have noticed that with the snow we have a large number of students arriving late at school. We understand that at times it is difficult in the morning

to get everyone to school by the bell at 8:50AM, and the parking lot situation does not help. The students who are late unfortunately miss an important part of the lesson in the morning. We would like all of our students to respect the time so they can start their classes promptly, don’t miss essential information and also do not disrupt their peers. Please give yourself a few extra minutes in the morning so we can reduce the classroom disruptions. We appreciate your support.

Another reminder, please NO DOGS on school property. Some students are fearful of dogs and in order to keep our students feeling safe all dogs must remain off school property.

Please make sure that your child/children have appropriate clothes for the cold weather and please consider packing some spare socks, mittens and pants in your child’s bag. Also, we have a large collection of unclaimed items so if your child is missing something please visit the school in the morning or after school to check the lost and found.

Important Dates:

  • PW Annual Winter Carnaval January 31st

  • PA Days (2 this month)  -  Feb 1st (assessment and Reporting)  &  Feb 15th (SIPSA)

  • Family Day Feb 18th

  • Grade 8 Trip Feb 20th to 22nd

  • Report Cards Going Home Feb 25th

  • Student Recognition Assembly Feb 27th

  • Pink Shirt Day Feb 27th

Carnaval Request

posted Jan 22, 2019, 2:35 PM by Natasha Crompton-Dunn   [ updated Jan 29, 2019, 2:43 PM ]

Carnaval excitement is building at Pilgrim Wood!

We are looking for donations of recyclable materials! Before you put out your blue bins tomorrow take a look for anything the Grade 5 classes can use

in building their castles. Especially helpful are materials made of thinner cardboard like cereal and cracker boxes, tubes of any size, and items that have interesting shapes. Please ensure items are clean and safe for the children to handle.

Please drop off your recyclable materials starting today in the bins in the front hall.

We need YOUR help! There are numerous volunteer opportunities available, both indoor and outdoor:

Thanks so much for your help
