At HWDSB, we know that parent engagement fosters student success. We want to be as clear as possible about changes to how schools report on learning in Kindergarten.
In the past at HWDSB, family members could attend “observation visits” in Kindergarten. For the 2017-18 school year, we will be using the new, written Kindergarten report provided by the Ministry of Education.
Because every student is unique in their learning, HWDSB staff strive to provide programs that help all students reach their full potential. French Immersion is one such program.
The program is open to all students in Hamilton-Wentworth starting in Grade 1.
