Welcome Back to School!

Welcome back to school! Its amazing how quickly the summer has gone bye. I hope you all had a great vacation and your children are excited about starting school again and seeing their friends and teachers. I, along with my teachers and staff are looking forward to seeing everyone and having another terrific year at Westminster P.S.

I want to thank you for subscribing and viewing this blog which we began last year and are planning to expand this year. On this blog we will continue to post quick and current information about school events and reminders. We ask that you please encourage your friends and community neighbours to subscribe to our blog which we hope will be an effective and convenient method of communicaton.

Our office is open this week between 8:30-4:00. School starts on Tuesday, September 8th at 8:35 a.m. As class lists continue to be revised, we cannot share class placements until Tuesday. Teachers and staff will welcome our students in the back of the school at 8:20 a.m. where they will be divided into their homerooms.  Kindergarten children will meet in the kindergarten enclosures. Parents are asked to say goodbye outside. If it rains, this will be done in the gym.

Suggestions for school supplies, besides the basics which are supplied by the school, will be shared by the teachers. Otherwise, please send your child with a healthy lunch and snacks. Order forms for hot lunches and milk will be provided in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the upcoming long weekend with your family and friends.  See you next week!

Mrs. Joseph
