MONDAY Sept 22nd START UP
We, at École Westridge Elementary School, are excited to get started with your children. This is to inform you that your child is to report to the gym @ 9:00am. It would be very helpful if everyone arrived 5 minutes early and we were ready to start our Welcome Assembly right at 9:00am sharp. Parents are more than welcome to join us in the gym for this assembly.
After a brief welcome, our school community will be introduced to our awesome 2014/2015 staff and then students will be accompanied to their last year’s class. There have been a number of teacher changes and room changes which requires that we first meet in the gym so we can match up students with their teachers. As each class is asked to leave the gym, the room that they will be going to will be announced so that parents will know where to pick up their child.
At this time parents are asked to wait outside for their children to be dismissed at 10am.
Each child will be assigned to a “FAMILY GROUP” for Tuesday and Wednesday. It is our hope that we will be able to assign your child to their 2014/2015 academic classroom by Thursday morning. We are happy to report that we have had an influx in student registration. However, as a result, until we have an accurate count of student attendance, we will not be able to finalize our class organization. If this is the case, students will continue to report to their family groups until we are able to finalize the class organization. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work hard to ensure that much thought and care is put into your child’s classroom assignment.
École Westridge Elementary School is part of a vibrant community and we are thrilled to be back doing what we love to do. As always please get involved with your child’s education. Our doors are always open and we encourage parents to volunteer in any capacity that they can. Stay tuned for news from our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) for opportunities to get involved.
