Welcome back Westminster!

On behalf of the staff here at Westminster P.S. we welcome back our returning families and extend a warm welcome to the new families joining our school community.  We hope that everyone’s summer has been safe and enjoyable and that you are all looking forward to the year ahead. We invite you to our annual Curriculum Night on September 14th when you will be able to meet your child’s teachers and hear about their curriculum. So save the date!

Westminster P.S. enjoys strong community support and the efforts of our school council are to be commended. We want to thank you in advance for your support in making Westminster an outstanding and safe learning environment for all. An excellent way to make your contributions to the education of your children is to come out to our monthly School Council meetings to hear about school initiatives and get to know other community members. We hope to see many of our parents at the School Council meeting scheduled September 27th at 7:00 p.m. Please come out to meet with me, teacher liaisons and other parents.  

I would like to thank our dedicated teachers many of whom continued their own education over the summer and spent countless hours preparing for the new school year. The school itself had renovations again over the summer and we now have new ceiling tiles and lights to further brighten our school. We thank our caretaking staff with new lead caretaker, Mr. Stuart Poole, along with Tom and Brad, for their work over the summer to prepare our building as well. In the office, we thank Mrs. Moliterni and Mrs. Ebidia who continue to work tirelessly to make sure everything runs smoothly.

We have had some changes in staff over the summer. We want to wish those staff who have moved much luck in their new endeavours. 

We would like to congratulate Ms. Parekh on her promotion to Vice Principal of Bakersfield P.S. 

We also wish Mrs. Schwartz well on her maternity leave with her new baby girl, and Ms. Manimanakis who has moved away. 

We are pleased to welcome new staff who have joined our team; Ms. Michael teaching 5/6, Ms. Shani as SERT and Ms. Sentheyvale in FDK.

Oshogatsu (January 1-3) is an important festival for many Japanese people. Some gather with friends and families to say good-bye to the old year at forgetting parties.
