WOM is Fundraising with Fundscrip
With Fundscrip, Shopping is Fundraising!!
Pay with gift cards instead of cash and help support WOM students!
Shop for everyday items, such as groceries and gas, or stock up on gift cards for birthday's, holidays or even teacher appreciation. A percentage of the cards purchased is donated back to WOM and used to enhance learning throughout the school. With over 190 retailers to choose from, you'll have plenty of variety with FUNDSCRIP.
Lost and Found Items
If your child is missing a water bottle or a clothing item, there's a good chance it's in one of the two Lost and Found bins!
The JK/SK bin is located in the foyer at the entrance to the JK cubby area. The second bin is located between the library and gymnasium doors.
Each item is marked with a small piece of ribbon stapled to a tag. If a tag is not available, the ribbon is stapled in an inconspicuous location such as a seam. Hard items such as Tupperware and water bottles are marked with a piece of electrical tape.
Please check out the WOM School Council Facebook page for photos of the Lost and Found items in the two bins. Please note that photos of the two bins are uploaded separately in two Facebook posts.
OCDSB Speaker Series
From the OCDSB: The OCDSB Speaker Series offers free presentations to the community and seeks to provide parents and educators with access to leading ideas in education that will allow us to work collaboratively to better support student learning.
OCDSB School Council Newsletter
The school board sends a weekly newsletter, with news to share with school councils across the city. We keep a link for it in the "Links" section in the left of this page and you can also subscribe to receive the newsletter. This newsletter will help keep you up-to-date on news and events at other schools in the Board and at the Board level.
The library also needs volunteers to help with book shelving on Tuesdays, at 12:30 pm for an hour or two, depending on the amount of books and volunteers. If you can help, please drop by the library, on Tuesdays or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
