AVRCE’s Parent Navigator, Tammy Ring, helps guide families to supports and services. She works with schools, SchoolsPlus, and community agencies to make sure families know how to access services in education, justice, health, community services and more.

The Parent Navigator position is new to Nova Scotia’s education system. Our Parent Navigator can help if you:

  • - Are looking for support and knowledge from someone who knows what resources are out there, and how to access them;
  • - Are wondering who can answer questions about your child’s academic, emotional and/or social well-being;
  • - Want help connecting to services and systems to get your child the right help and support.

If you’re wondering which way to go, ask your Parent Navigator! Contact Tammy Ring by calling 902-844-2816, emailing tammy.ring@avrce.ca, or by speaking with your school administrator.

School Supplies: Teachers will be purchasing all school supplies needed by students.  The fee for Primary students will be $30For grades 1-5 students, we have reduced the fee for this year ONLY due to the lost time from mid March to June.  The fee for grades 1-2 will be $20 per student, and $25 for students in grades 3-5 (includes school agenda).  All you should need to purchase for your child is a pair of indoor sneakers (non-marking soles), a lunch container, and backpack.  It would be appreciated if you could send two boxes of tissues for sharing in the classroom throughout the year.


Newsletters:  Newsletters will be sent home via email ONLY.  We are happy to send a paper copy if you do not have internet access at home. A notice has been sent home providing you with the opportunity to indicate how you would like to receive notices. We will continue to follow these instructions this year. If you wish to receive notices a different way (electronic copy only; paper copy only; or paper and electronic), please contact the office or send a note with your child.


Please refer to the WFDS Parent/Student Handbook for information on school procedures, playground guidelines, etc. There is also a link on this website under the Student/Parent Page. 


WFDS is a “nut smart” school.  We have students with severe allergies to nuts. Therefore we ask that you not send products containing nuts to school.  If you use “wow” butter or other replacements, help us avoid the confusion by sending a note in the lunchbox indicating that it is a nut-free product.  THANK YOU!
