Image result for creative commons images back to schoolWe would like to welcome back to all returning families to P.W. and extend a special welcome to all new families to Pilgrim Wood P.S.! We are looking forward to seeing everyone on September 3rd!

The office is open starting August 19, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for new registrations or to answer any questions you may have.

Parents are welcomed to buy any supplies if they like to for the new school year, e.g. binders, duo-tangs, crayons, markers etc. Teachers will provide the list of suggested materials for each class to the students on the first day.

This year, class lists will not be posted on the school website or the doors at school. As per the board’s direction; you will get an e-mail on Friday, August 30th after 3:30 with the information about your child’s classroom placement. 

If you are driving your child to school on the first day, we ask you to park your car on a side street at a spot where it is legal to park and walk to school.
For students safety, there is 
absolutely no parking or stopping at the front of the school.
You may bring your child to the 
back of the school on to blacktop any time after 8:30 am.  Class names will be posted on the school wall and home teachers will be available to welcome students. There will be extra staff available at the front and at the back of the school to help those parents and students who need some help in finding their class. We will be bringing students inside at around 8:50 a.m. If it rains, all students will be asked to gather in the gym, but we will ask parents NOT to come into the gym for safety reasons. Our gym does not have the capacity to accommodate all students and parents.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are looking forward to seeing everyone on September 3rd !!
