Parents and Students of Westmount,
The staff and I hope you had a wonderful summer break and are anxious to return to class and our fantastic school!
Any families new to our area should ensure they come to register at the school starting August 29th. Please bring two pieces of identification to show your address(bc hydro bill and driver's license for example) and please bring your child's care card and birth certificate. Please come anytime after 10:30 am.
The first day of school is TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 6th. Doors will open at 10:20 and classes will resume at 10:30. All children should report to their LAST YEAR's teacher's classroom. ALL NEW STUDENTS will report to the LIBRARY and then will be placed into a grade grouping as soon as possible. There will be an assembly at 11:20 on Tuesday Sept. 6 and parents are welcome to attend and hear about our exciting new school year. Dismissal is 12:00 on Tuesday.
On WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 7th, all children will report back to their last year's teacher's classroom again and then we will spend Wednesday reviewing school beliefs, reminding children about our school Code of Conduct A.I.R. (accountability, integrity and respect) and introducing the children to THE VIRTUES PROJECT which is new to all our student body this year.
Our hope as a staff is to finalize class placements as soon as we can in the first few days. Enrollment truly dictates whether we can go ahead and post the classes or we need to wait for more staffing if enrollment has increased over the summer months and we can no longer accommodate the demand with the present number of classrooms. Attendance on Tuesday Sept. 6 and Wednesday Sept. 7 is SO SO SO important for us.
I will be in touch via synrevoice so all will know when the new class lists will be posted during the first week and when we can start in our new divisions.
