Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Families and Friends,

Welcome to Weledeh Catholic School.  We are proud of our dedicated and experienced staff as well as our enthusiastic learners!

As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their potential.  We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for all our students.  We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.

With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Weledeh School.  Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the Parent Advisory Council (PAC), special event participation, or member of one of our school communities, you are encouraged to be involved!  Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.

It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school.  Up-to-date and additional information will be sent to you though the monthly newsletter and will appear on our school web page, as well as follow us on our social media sites ( see below for details).  If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call.  I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.

Website: ​Visit us at ​http://www.weledeh.nt.ca/ to stay informed of school events. This is a quick and easy way to get to our website directly.

Facebook: Weledeh Facebook.  ​This tool allows parents and students to connect directly with school and classroom teachers regarding assignments, grades and notices.

Twitter: ​Social media is not just for kids! Twitter is a great way to receive quick reminders about school events, hear of exciting classroom experiences and see pictures of key events. Here is our twitter handles to follow ​@weledeh

 

Additionally, the school Parent Portal is available to all parents and guardians. This will allow you to see attendance and grades for your students at anytime.


 

At Weledeh we strive to meet the needs of our students. In an effort to increase our attendance during period one each day, we have adjusted our start time to allow more time for students to arrive at school and be present for period one. Below is the schedule that will be implemented starting September 1, 2017. As you can see, we have adjusted our start time to 8:40 a.m. with supervision beginning at 8:25 a.m., so students can be dropped off at that time.
