Hi Parents,

First off a huge thank you to our amazing PAC and all parents of Westmount! At the PAC Meeting on Monday Nov. 7 th PAC approved the purchase of 42 new Chromebooks for our students. They also approved their 2016-2017 Budget and I was so impressed with the support and intiatives the PAC want to endorse this school year. It means a lot to all the staff and students. THANK YOU! Your fundraising for our school is making a huge difference.

Those parents that park on Collingwood and Driftwood,  please note a complaint has come from residences on that side of the field that the safety of the children is being comprimised and driveways blocked. Please know residents will be calling ByLaw Services so please be mindful where you park. Please always watch out for our students- we do not want a tragedy to occur because everyone is in a rush at drop off and pick up times.

*PARENTS if you have not paid your School Supplies or Performing Arts "Art Starts' fees could you please do so immediately or speak with Mrs. Connelly in the office about a payment plan. If you do not pay your fee the school runs a deficit and there is no budget to cover those parents that do not pay their annual fees. We need your assistance. Thank you.



MILK AND COOKIE DAY IS BACK!  I have asked Blackwell Dairy if we could please get the milk delivered as early as possible so the kids can have the milk and cookies at snack time, but we are at the mercy of the delivery man- so that is why it was lunch time last time we did this. Thanks for your support!
