Wee Read

Brentwood School would like to thank all our wee read volunteers that read with our kindergarten and grade one students. Thank you for bringing the joy of reading to our young students! Our students always looked forward to your visits every week and you truly made a difference in strengthening their foundations for reading and overall school success.

We are hoping to start our next round of wee read the last week of January.  We would love to have you back at our school again if possible.  

Be a wee read volunteer!

We are looking for volunteers who can come to the school for about 30 minutes, once a week, for eight consecutive weeks to read with two children, talk about books, and play games that support literacy skills. This eight-week program was designed by Alberta Reads ( to help Kindergarten and Grade One children strengthen the foundations for reading and school success, and help children develop a love for books.

If you are interested in being part of this fun and meaningful opportunity, or know of someone who might be, there will be a volunteer training session on January 21 at Westboro School (6:30-7:30).  We hope that you will consider partnering with us on this. Please email Tracy Russell if you would like to volunteer.  

Returning Student Registration for 2019-20

Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) will once again conduct an online returning student registration process to confirm student registrations for the 2019-20 school year. Families of all returning students will need to complete this process to confirm the school their children will attend for the 2019-20 school year, and to request to attend a non-designated school, if applicable. Returning student registration will take place at the same time as all registrations for the 2019-20 school year: Feb. 1-28, 2019

Access to the Returning Student Registration Form is provided through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If you don’t have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, you will need to set one up before Feb. 1, 2019

Kindergarten Registration Starts Soon!

Is your child turning five on or before Dec. 31, 2019? If so, it’s almost time to register for kindergarten.

Kindergarten registration opens for the 2019-20 school year on Feb. 1, 2019.

To help families prepare, Elk Island Public Schools has put together an online toolkit—available at—to make the transition as smooth as possible. The kit includes information on registration, important dates, programming options, what to expect, eligibility, how to find your designated school, transportation and more.

Attendance & Safe Arrival

We have had a high # of non-reported absences. One measure of keeping students safe is ensuring students have safely arrived at school. If your child is going to be late or absent for any reason, it is important that you contact the office immediately via email or phone (available 24hours/day) no later than 8:30am and report the reason for the absence/late.

Thank you for your co-operation and support.
