Accessing June Report Cards

Report cards will be sent out to families via email on Wednesday, June 29th.  You need to enter your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) to access the report card - please remember to include the hyphens when entering the number.  Please look at the November progress report or February report card to see your child’s OEN.  If you have additional questions, visit the OCDSB report card webpage or contact the school office.

Library/Makerspace Renewal Project Update

Thanks to the entire Orleans Wood community for the tremendous support of the Library/Makerspace Renewal Project.  At school, our custodians, Mr. Kelsey and Mr. Pickup, along with our library technician, Ms. Davis, have put in a large number of extra hours to move the project forward at its quick pace. The flooring, painting, Makerspace storage, and Library technician/circulation desk area have been completed ahead of schedule.  The STEM room sink and Library seating area installations will almost certainly be completed over the summer and ready to go for September/October.  Basically, the only thing left to do is for school staff and future school councils to decide how to approach renewing the Library bookshelves.  We can’t wait for everyone to see the “finished” project when the new school year starts!
