Congratulations Graduates and School Organization Information

Our graduation last night was a very special event.  The graduating class of 2016 enjoyed an evening ceremony at The Stephen Leacock Theatre and a celebration dinner and dance back at W.J. Watson.  Thank you to all the parents who worked many hours volunteering to make our graduation night a huge success!   All the best is extended to our 50 graduating students as they leave Elementary School and transition to Secondary School in September.   We will miss their smiling faces at W.J. Watson every day.

We wish the following staff members the very best as they transition to new roles at York Region Schools.   It is hard to say goodbye to this highly professional and dedicated group of educators.  We will miss all of you!

Welcome to the following new staff members:

Mrs. Krystal White – Teacher


We are already looking forward to and are planning for the 2016-2017 School Year!  The following organization is tentative and is based on current enrollment numbers:

JK/SK Grade 3/4
JK/SK Grade 4
SK/1 Grade 5
Grade 1 Grade 5/6
Grade 1/2 Grade 6
Grade 2 Grade 7/8
Grade 2/3 Grade 7/8


Our student enrollment has continued to decline somewhat and as a result, we will have two less homeroom classes next year based on student enrollment and staffing allocations.

If student enrollment increases or decreases there may be a change in the school organization in the summer months and/or in the month of September.  Due to changes that may occur over the summer, we do not share class placements or teacher names until the first day of school.  Families are asked to bring their children to the back of the school on Tuesday, September 6th, 2016 between 8:45 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.  When the bell rings, all students will be brought into the school and students will be assigned their homeroom classes.

Wishing all of the W.J. Watson P.S. families a wonderful safe and happy summer!

As always, please do not hesitate to contact the office with any questions, feedback, comments or concerns.




Mrs. L. Crossley                                              Ms. M. Murray

Principal                                                          Vice-Principal
