Volunteer Appreciation Event May 29th

Please join us for our Volunteer Appreciation Event on Monday May 29th at 7:00 p.m.-8:00 pm. Our staff and students would like to thank all our volunteers for your commitment to our school and school community. This year, we are offering this opportunity to say thank you in the evening as part of our last School Council meeting of the year. All our precious volunteers are invited to come out to join us for yummy goodies, special surprises from our students and good conversation as we wrap up the year. 

Westminster is a small but mighty school with many amazing events and activities going on throughout the year thanks to the efforts of parents from School Council and other volunteers. This year we have had many opportunities for our families to come to our school to meet and have fun together at events such as:
  • Community BBQ and Fun Fair
  • Family Games Night
  • Family Movie Night
  • Family Autumn Ball 
  • Rock 'n Roll Literacy Author Visit Night 
Volunteers have worked hard to support fundraising initiatives such as:
  • Hot Lunches 
  • Community Cookbook
Volunteers have also come into the school to help our students practice their reading and math skills, and help out wherever they are needed such as field trip supervisors and Scientist in the School helpers and art projects.  

It is clear that our school has been enriched by the engagement and support of our volunteers. We want to THANK YOU!  We hope you can come out to our Volunteer Appreciation Event on May 29th and we hope you will continue to give of your precious time towards enhancing this wonderful school for our children. We couldn't do it without you!
