Westmount Parent Weekly Update April 3-7th, 2017
by Carol DeFehr - Saturday, 1 April 2017, 9:23 AM

Hi Parents!

I hope you had a wonderful Spring Break with your children and that everyone in your house is ready to get back to routines and school life. Happy April's Fool's Day today! So strange that this is on the weekend this year. The kids and I love to play a few trickster moves usually when it falls during the week. I have missed seeing all your terrific kids and look forward to seeing them all on Monday.

Please remember to send back all inside shoes, gymstrip, blankets in Kindergarten and signed REPORT CARD Envelopes. Please ensure your child comes to school dressed for outside play daily- whether that is rain gear or  appropriate jackets.

Watch for permission slips for those students interested in playing FLAG FOOTBALL this season (Gr. 6/7) and those students who want to participate in RELAY FEST/PARLOFF should see Mrs. Caputo if you missed the sign up prior to Spring Break. Permission slips will go home for all three events shortly after we return.

Parents a reminder again that at NO TIME is the STAFF PARKING LOT accessible for parents at drop off or pick up times. This parking lot is completely out of bounds to parents. Please be respectful of this.

APRIL IS CANUCKS AUTISM MONTH. Westmount is an inclusive school and we believe strongly in acceptance and education about this cause. All month teachers will be giving talks, lessons, showing youtube clips to educate our students about autism.
