New Student Registration

Thank you for your interest in Wainwright Elementary School.  Below is our basic registration information, and is the most requested by our families.

To complete registration for your child:

Please fill out both the Student Registration Form and Student Responsible Use Technology Form, for each child you are registering.  Parents can either print the forms to fill them in, or fill them out online.  To fill them out online you have to save the form first, and then proceed filling out your saved version.  If you don't save it first it will erase everything you've entered.  

We also require a copy of each child’s birth certificate.  If you don’t have one, you can still register.  We will have you fill out an Official Verification of Student Identity form for your child that will be placed in their file until a birth certificate is provided.  Email completed forms to



Current year supply lists can be found here.  We will also email a copy to families who have registered with us.  Supply lists are updated in June for the upcoming school year.

Inclusive Learning

For students with special needs or who may require additional support from an Educational Assistant due to physical disabilities we encourage you to reach out to our Inclusive Learning Teacher (and Assistant Principal), Mrs. Martens at  This will help us get things in place prior to your child starting in our school and allows us to give your child the best possible class placement to encourage a smooth transition to their new school.
