Hi Parents,

7. Also on Wednesday the PAC will be sending home the WESTMOUNT WOLFPACK ATTIRE orders for Westmount Clothing from Hansport. We are so fortunate to have the support of Hansport! Please make cheques payable to WESTMOUNT PAC. All taxes are included in the prices. This is NOT a fundraiser for the PAC. They offer the clothing so that we build a sense of community and school spirit when we have our Blue Westmount Pride Days. Consider getting an item as a Christmas gift and just write on the order that it is a Christmas gift and that you want to be called to pick it up.

8. Mini Cucumbers and Milk for K-5/6 are delivered on Wednesday so that is a special treat this week!
