Hi Parents,

Happy Weekend to you all! Please find below the updates for the upcoming week and some reminders for the following week as well.

Just a reminder that if you plan to MOVE over the summer to please let Mrs. Connelly know in the office if your children are not returning to Westmount.

For those of you that have children that work with Mrs. Korpan, our CEA, I am pleased to let you know that she is not leaving our school for the next school year. We had lost one position, but secured our 4th CEA back for 2017-2018 this past Wednesday. Mrs. Dawn Lord is leaving our school as she posted into Arthur Hatton though so that is a change since the newsletter came out.

PAC NEWS: Just a reminder that there is a PAC MEETING MONDAY JUNE 12th at 6:15 pm. We would love to see you there. New faces always welcome.

LAURA's PIES FUNDRAISER- A HUGE THANK YOU FOR ALL THE ORDERS! REMEMBER PIES MUST BE PICKED UP WED. JUNE 14th. They should arrive around 2 pm so please mark your calendars. We have no space to store the frozen pies at the school so parents must make arrangements for pick up.

PAC YEAR END BBQ!  The fun gets under way around 5 pm. The Lions Club will be serving up burgers and there will be a dunk tank again this year and lots of fun games for your children run by WSS volunteeer students. Bring money to get tickets for the amazing baskets that will be given away that night and the kids always love the CAKE WALK (cupcake prizes). FYI~ I will be in the DUNK TANK at 5:15 for anyone that wants to pay a small price to dunk me! I know there are some children out there that want redemption on me........ (le sigh) 

THERE WILL NOT BE A PAC FREEZIE SALE ON FRIDAY JUNE 16 due to the Early Closure.
