Thank You Volunteers
Volunteers make a difference at Whitby Shores Public School. Without the time and effort of our volunteers, there are many programs which would not be possible.
Thank you to our volunteers for: routinely driving students to events, cheering from the sidelines, helping in the classrooms with Scientists in the Schools, listening to our students read, collating worksheets for teachers, accompanying students on class trips, attending S.C.C. meetings, skiing the slopes, counting and collecting money, ordering, organizing and delivering pizzas, and helping students with work or crafts.
Volunteers make the impossible possible at Whitby Shores. A very big thank you is extended to each and every volunteer. You are valued and needed at WSPS. Our success is the measure of your gift to us. We greatly appreciate all you do!

Oshawa Civic Goes WILD for Whitby Shores!
Once again, the Whitby Shores Track and Field Team put forth an amazing effort at the Durham Regional Championships this month! The day was looking grim with all the rain, but our athletes persevered and the sun came out! As always, the competition was amazing and all of our athletes made us very proud. We are looking forward to next season! Special mention to our athletes who won ribbons and are the top 8 in all of Durham are attached below.
S. O. S. Save Our Subscriptions!
The QSP family reading magazine fundraiser is coming this Fall! Over the next few months, please ignore any publisher reminders and wait to renew your subscriptions through our school. If you order directly from the publisher, the school does not benefit. Also, save those publisher coupons, as QSP accepts all price discount offers. If you can’t wait until then or wish to order a gift subscription, you can lend support to our school any time of the year by ordering online at www.qsp.ca. Remember, if you have a question regarding your QSP magazine orders, please call QSP Customer Service at 1-800-667-2536. Thank you for your continued support!
