Young Choristers Limestone:  This LDSB children’s choir performed for several classes at Welborne last week.  The group rehearses at Cataraqui Woods Elementary School on Tuesdays from 4:30 and 5:30.  Interested students in grades 3-8 (in the fall) are invited to audition in September.  Dates and contact info. below.   
Moving this summer?  We are looking ahead to the fall.  If your family is moving this summer, please let us know.  Unless we hear from you, we’ll assume that all students are returning.  If you move without informing us, that will leave gaps in our classes in September and may necessitate a re-organization.  
Out of Area?  Forms will be going home soon with all students who currently live outside of the Welborne catchment area.  Although students are expected to go to school in the area where they live, we understand there are sometimes extenuating and special circumstances.  All students who are currently attending Welborne will be welcomed back in September 2017.   
Kindergarten Registrations:   If your child will be 4 or 5 by the end of December, please register. You will need a birth certificate, health card and immunization record.  If you are missing one of the documents, please register anyway.  Our ‘Discover Kindergarten’ open house will take place on June 22 at 4:30.  
Welborne Showcase:  The dress rehearsal will take place on Monday, June 5 during the day.  The show will take place Tuesday, June 6 afternoon as well as early evening.
