Welcome to Ormstown Elementary School!
A place to grow and learn, and where our mission is student success.

Our theme this year is “Heroes & Superheroes”. For the past 8 years, OES has welcomed a real-life hero to its Remembrance Day Ceremony. Unfortunately this year Sergeant Langlois was not able to join us as he is on a mission overseas. The link below will take you to a tribute to Sergeant Langlois from our students. Enjoy!
Home reading support for our families
Focus on fluency
If your child is struggling to read fluently, there are strategies you can use at home to support this critical, lifelong skill. Don’t worry! Any child who struggles with reading fluency can improve with practice, attention, and consistent feedback. Here are a few simple ways to get your kids reading pages and pages of text with absolute confidence.
Supporting good fluency can be summarized by three strategies:
Model fluent reading – Read aloud together – Reread favourite books
