Hi Parents,

Here are the updates for this week at Westmount and a glance at the last week of school too!

SUNDAY JUNE 18th- HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the wonderful Westmount dads and father figures in the childrens' lives.

We hope you liked your thank you cards and #youmatter pen gift that came home Fri. June 16th!

VERY IMPORTANT- Thanks to all of you that ordered for ICECREAM SANDWICH DAY.....our supplier was BLACKWELL DAIRY for the Mint Icecream Sandwiches. As you know, they suffered a disastrous fire this week and therefore can not provide me with the icecream. Please note that my husband and I will go to Costco and get the almost 275 icecream sandwiches that were ordered, but please note that they will be the MEGA VANILLA ICECREAM SANDWICHES. If your child does not like these, please note they can come to the office and we will return the $1.00 to them. Please explain the situation to your child so they understand what is happening prior to Wednesday June 21. Thank you for understanding.



A REMINDER TO RETURN FUN DAY PERMISSION FORMS! Fun Day is June 27. A special thanks to the PAC (and all parents as this is your fundraising money at work!)  for making lunch and giving icecream treats to our kids on this day. Each child will get a hotdog, a bag of chips, a juice box and a frozen treat. Should you want to pack more snacks by all means please do so to supplement this lunch.
