Parent Teacher interviews

This Thursday, December 1st are Westmount’s first term parent teacher interviews. There will be no school for students this day. Staff will be engaging in Professional development in the morning. The interviews will be held between 1-4 and 6-8. I have received many forms requesting times and have in turn sent home your interview times. If you haven’t sent back a form please do so ASAP to ensure a time on this day. I will be out sick tomorrow, Tuesday, November 29th. You could email me if you would like to set up a time and receive confirmation ASAP. 

Thank you, 


Scholastic Book fair

This week WSA is hosting a Scholastic book fair in our school library. Students will visit the fair during their regular Library times to peruse the books. The fair will be set up all week. Come stop by on Parent Teacher interview day to take a peek at the selections offered. 

Coding in the Classroom 

O.B and Y.O. were using their problem solving skills this afternoon to help Osmo’s Awbie go on an adventure using coding commands. Osmo’s Coding was given two thumbs up 👍🏽👍🏽. Can’t wait for the rest of the students to get a turn to play and code with Awbie. 

Report cards and Parent Teacher Interviews

First term student reports will be sent home this Thursday, November 24th. There have been changes made to Grades 4-6 reports. A notice went home recently that outlined these changes. 

Parent teacher interviews will be taking place next Thursday, December 1st. They will be 10 minute time slots from 1-4 and then again from 6-8. Notices were sent home Monday to request time preferences. Please send back as soon as possible. I will begin to send home confirmation times to parents tomorrow, Wednesday November 23rd. 

Rocks and Minerals 

We are finishing up our testing and observations with personal rock samples. This time using vinegar. 

One of C.B.’s rocks was fizzing in vinegar. C. B. learned that if gas bubbles form, then the rock contains minerals called carbonates.

Remembrance Day 

We participated in our annual Remembrance Day assembly today. Z.R, M.S and S. C. wore their uniforms. Z.R and M.S. participated in the procession into the gym and laid our wreath up front. Z.R also read a poem aloud. G. A., M.D. and S.M read aloud a poem as well. Several of our students sang songs in the choir. Thank you all for contributing to our assembly!
