Happy Mother's Day to all of our wonderful Westmount Mom's. I hope your weekend is a lovely one.

Here are the updates for this week at Westmount, plus a look ahead to the following week for your planning:

VIRTUE OF THE WEEK: FORGIVENESS

NO SCHOOL MONDAY MAY 15- This is a DISTRICT NON INSTRUCTIONAL DAY.

PLEASE FIND ATTACHED THE PAC NEWSLETTER FOR MAY. Please take a read.

PAC LAURA'S PIE FUNDRAISER- PIE ORDERS DUE BACK  by MAY 29th.

GR. 7 Parents- PLEASE SEND IN A BABY PICTURE by  the end of the week- either hard copy or digitally to Mrs. Edstrom  kedstrom@sd73.bc.ca

SCHOOL FUNDRAISER PILOT PROGRAM
I am excited to announce our latest fundraising initiative with School Spirit Vending! In the coming weeks, you will notice a shiny new sticker vending machine placed outside Mrs. Connelly's office area.  The sales of these stickers will boost our school's fundraising profits in a way that is hassle-free, requires no volunteers and will be in place year-round. Please take a minute to check out the following video for a brief introduction to the School Spirit Vending program and its benefits to you, your kids and the school.

Let's get the kids excited by throwing a loonie in their lunch box so they can help support their school!

PLEASE NOTE- WESTMOUNT is piloting this for the school district. As the principal, separate from the PAC, I am always looking at ways to create revenue so that I can do fun rewards for the students. Thanks for considering sending a $1 if your child shows an interest in getting the Westmount Wolfpack Stickers.
