Safety Reminders

We have a very friendly Wild Rose community, which we love, but each individual needs to buzz into the main office. Please do not hold the door open for someone behind you. The safety of our Staff and Students is our top priority, therefore everyone needs to ring the bell and state who they are and their reason for coming.

Thank you for your understanding & cooperation with this.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Conferences will be October 6th and 7th.

The Pick-a-Time window for parents to sign-up for Fall Conferences closes Monday, October 3rd at midnight. If you have not yet signed up for conferences, please make sure to do so this weekend.

Scholastic Book Fair

The Fall Scholastic Book Fair will be on October 17-20 in the ALC and online. Students will be able to browse and make purchases during school hours and with their parents at the Family Event on October 20.


  • Go cashless with eWallet! Fund your child's eWallet on the book fair website, print the confirmation for your child to bring to school and don't worry about sending your child with cash. You can also share your child's eWallet with family members so they can help your child get even more books.
  • We can't run a book fair without volunteers; set-up, tear down, help kids choose books and help our school earn hundreds of books for classrooms and the library. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e44afab2fa2fcc16-wild

Changes to the District Website

Please be aware that the District 303 website will undergo construction during the week of October 3 to reflect recent changes to names and titles within the Department of Learning & Teaching. These changes have been made to better align with the work and responsibilities of the department. The most notable changes are:
  • The Department of Instructional Interventions will now be the Department of Student Services
  • Staff, Family & Student Services will now be Student Programs
Page names and links will update to reflect these new titles, and other changes may occur. Thank you for your understanding.
