Hi Parents!

Here are the updates for this week and a glance at the following week as well for your planning.

Please find attached a WESTMOUNT STAKEHOLDERS PARENT/GUARDIAN SURVEY. This document will come home to you on Monday in paper copy. I am sending it this weekend so you can take a read and be thinking about the questions. We would love to have your input so please make time to complete it and send it back before Friday March 3rd.  There will be a bin at the office for the completed survey- feel free to send back with your child and have them deliver it to the office. If your child is in GR. 3-7 they will also be completing a STUDENT Engagement Survey this coming week at school as well. This information is needed for our SCHOOL LEARNING PLAN we are presently drafting.
