2017-18 EIPS Parent Survey: We Want to Hear from You
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is committed to ensuring all parents and guardians of students within the Division have a chance to share their thoughts on the overall performance of their school and the Division. One of the ways EIPS ensures its parents’ voices are heard is by conducting an annual parent survey.
Wes Hosford School encourages all parents and guardians to take a few minutes to complete the brief online survey. It will only take a few minutes and will help to supplement the Division’s Accountability Pillar Survey data.
Survey closes March 23
The feedback gathered will help the Division measure its progress towards meeting the goals and priorities outlined in the EIPS 2015–2018 Three-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve its students and the wider community.
NOTE: The survey is anonymous and only takes a few minutes to complete. If you want to share the experience of more than one child attending an EIPS school, simply complete the survey again.
Thank you for your participation.
Hair Massacure Update
We are thrilled to announce that the Hair Massacure has found new partnerships with the Alberta Cancer Society and The Children's Wish Foundation. The big head shave event will take place at the beginning of Spring Break at West Edmonton Mall on March 23 from 9:00AM - 9:00PM.
Due to the short notice and timing, Wes Hosford isn’t able to host a head shave event at the school this year, but we encourage our Wes Hosford participants to go to the event at West Edmonton Mall. We will be creating a Wes Hosford Team on the Hair Massacure website. If you would like to join the Wes Hosford team, go to Hair Massacure Registration. Mrs. Elgie will be shaving her head and appreciates any support. A collection box for our Wes Hosford Team will be set up in the office and donations will be accepted until March 22. Go Team Wes Hosford!
