Welcome to our new blog!

Welcome to our new school blog!  By using the technology available to us, Westminster Public School is using a variety of ways to reach out to our school community. Our goal is to encourage ongoing communication between home and school and build a true sense of community. We hope that this will serve as another way to let you know what is going on in your child's school and how you can help your child succeed. 

We know that students are more engaged with their learning when their families are involved with their school and show interest in their education. Along with our School Newsletters, School Website and new Twitter account, the WPS blog will provide you with information about school events, dates, curriculum implementation and much more.   

Our blog can send out up-to-date information bits and reminders straight to your computer or phone. Please take a moment to subscribe by providing your email to ensure that you receive these blogs as they come out. 

Thank you for your partnership in the education of your children. Their academic, emotional and social well-being and progress is our first priority.  Together, we hope to create a positive and caring environment for them to learn and grow at Westminster Public School. 

Sincerely, 
Micheline Joseph
Principal
