Four Friendly Reminders
Hello Parents and Guardians. I would like to send a note with a few important reminders as we approach the final half of October 2017.
- Tomorrow is October 20 and it is a Professional Activity Day for schools in York Region. Staff members will be engaged in activities around school improvement planning (math, modern learning and well-being) and there is no school for students on this day.
- Tonight Westmount Secondary School is holding the ARTS Westmount Open House for all families who are interested in possibly pursuing an ARTS program for High School. The program starts at 7:00 p.m.
- On Monday, October 23 at 7:00 p.m, we will have our School Council Meeting in the library. The meeting typically runs until approximately 8:20 p.m. All parents and guardians are welcome to attend.
- On October 31 our Touchstone Team will be hosting a special event for The Hospital for Sick Children. This year’s kick off fundraiser is in support of the cardiac unit at Sick Children’s Hospital. We are hosting a dance (and costume parade for JK – Grade 3 students who wish to participate) where classes who raise the most money will have 40 – 100 minutes at a dance event in the gymnasium. Costumes are optional and all students will be reminded about appropriate dress and safe schools (ie. no real or replica weapons allowed on school property). A games room and a reading room will be available for students who prefer these options in place of the dance. A letter regarding donations will come home next week.
As there is no school for students tomorrow, have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing everyone on Monday the 24th.
