Please find updates below for the week of Dec. 12-16 for familes of Westmount.


BE A HUNGER HERO CAMPAIGN CONTINUES- please bring in food donations for the Salvation Army and please bring an item for the Intermediate Christmas concert.


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! If you can assist a morning or two a week down in the drop off, the parents that run this could really use some extra help since Christein Paradis is expecting a baby very soon! Please email me if this is something you could do between 8 and 8:30 in the New Year and I will let Sandy Haddock know. THANK YOU!

BASKETBALL SIGN UP is now underway at Westmount. Children in Gr. 5/6/7 should be adding their name to the sign up sheets in classrooms to show interest to try out in January. Any boys hoping to try out should come to a meeting Tues. Dec. 13 at lunch in the library with parent coach Brad Watson.

For those of you that ordered a lot, please ensure you have a plan to get your product. WE ARE SO GRATEFUL for all your support of this fundraiser for the school~
