Greetings Orleans Wood Families,


We had a good week of learning at Orleans Wood. I saw some great projects being finished in classrooms, some awesome Math learning tasks, and some tall and creative structures being built in Kindergarten! You will see lots of forts and a few sculptures in the yard at the back of the school, as there was lots of collaborative building happening outside during recess.


Kindergarten Registration is now open for next year:

If you or any families that you know have a child who will be four years old by the end of 2023, please register for Kindergarten on the Kindergarten registration page on the OCDSB website. Our Kindergarten Information Evening is on Wednesday, February 1 at 6:30 pm. We look forward to seeing you!


Happy Lunar New Year

Best wishes to all those families who are celebrating the new year.


Middle French Immersion Registration Period - February 6 - 10:

If your child is in grade 3 in the English program and you would like to consider Middle French Immersion starting in grade 4, we are happy to answer any questions that you might have. The registration period is from February 6 - 10. Students go to Convent Glen E.S. for grades 4 and 5, then to Henry Larsen E.S. for grades 6-8. All students in our catchment area go to Cairine Wilson S.S. for grades 9-12 (all programs: English, Middle French Immersion and Early French Immersion).


Reminder - When your child is arriving late or being picked up early from school:

Please ensure that the adult dropping off or picking up the child comes in to the school office to sign the child in/out of school. This helps us to ensure that your child’s safe arrival and attendance is properly entered into our system. Thank you!
