April is a busy and educational month for the whole family! In April we are happy to be able to provide our Westminster families two evening events with great opportunities to have fun while learning together with your children. Please put the following dates in your calendar and get ready to come to school with your children of all ages in grades K-8.
April 6th - Family Math Mania Night!
Beginning with an assembly to give you all an overview of our teaching and learning in Math, you will then move to different rooms with lots of fun activities connecting math with different aspects of real life. You will follow a Math Passport to experience different tasks in a type of math scavenger hunt and drop off your completed passport for a chance to win our final prize draw. All events and centers will be run by our teachers and Grade 8 students so you know it will be fun and educational for everyone.
April 20th - Family Literacy Night and Author Visit for "Rock and Roll Literacy Show"
Thanks to a grant acquired by our School Council, we will have Canadian Author Sigmund Brouwer coming to visit our school. He will be coming during the day for an interactive and engaging assembly with our students about literacy and how to be a successful writer. He will then come back in the evening for a fun and exciting Literacy Family Show called Rock and Roll Literacy that include parents/guardians in the learning as well.
Please plan to attend both these special evenings to learn along with your children and help support both their Math and Literacy acquisition. What a great way to spend time while having fun together. Both events will begin at 6:30 p.m. with dinner orders available beginning at 6:00 p.m. Stay tuned for more information to come!
