Information for Grade 8 Students

Welcome Grade 8 Students!

January is registration time for Gr. 8 students in the Thames Valley District School Board.

Mr. Burke will be meeting with students at Dunwich-Dutton Public School and Aldborough Public School in December to help the students prepare for their 2022-2023 course selections.

On December 13th and 14th, Mr. Burke will meet with students to review both the compulsory and elective courses that WESS has to offer.  He will also go over the course selection process on myBlueprint and answer any questions that the students may have. 

On Tuesday January 11th, 2022, Mrs. Saunders and Mr. Burke will be hosting a live info session for parents on Microsoft Teams (click to see joining instructions). The session will begin at 7:00 pm. This session will include an overview of the registration process and an opportunity for parents to ask questions about WESS.

In late January, Mr. Burke will complete the registration with the students to ensure that the process runs smoothly and that any last-minute questions can be addressed.

Any Gr. 8 students joining us from another school board or area of Thames Valley should feel free to attend the parent information session and to contact Dave Burke at (519) 902-1033 or
