I am very excited to let everyone know that we have reached our fundraising goal of $10,000! Thank you to all for their donations. Please see the bouldering wall page for details. Work has progressed on the bouldering wall construction. Andrew, our contractor, has been busy working and all of the structure and panels have been installed. We are now awaiting the painting to be done by Lucille Knox who has designed a great panorama for the wall. It is going to look fantastic. Everything is on track for a full reveal by closing ceremonies.
I am also pleased to announce that Jason Bowers, teacher in the upper grades program, was successful in his application to become Assistant Principal. Jason has been at the school since 2007, and brings a wealth of knowledge about the school, much leadership background from his days running YMCA camps in Ontario, and a whole slew of world experiences from travelling all areas of the globe.
Our Summer Camp registration has begun. We have camps running from June 17 through to August 16 for
ages 3-9. We also have two amazing camps being put on for 10-12 year olds: June 24-28 and July 8-12. Registration deadline is Monday, June 3, 2013, with payment due at the time of registration. Full details about the camps can be seen in the brochure available for download or at the front desk in the school.
At the end of the school year we normally distribute our school calendar along with the final student report cards. This year we are holding off on sending out the calendar until we are able to sit down as a staff and determine the events for the upcoming school year. It also makes sense to hold off on the calendar until the schedule for Board and PAC meetings has been established. The calendar should go out in the first week of July. A final note on the calendar: in a push to make our school more green, we are looking to reduce our paper usage/printed materials. We are going to be asking parents to try and do with a digital copy of the calendar instead. However, in recognition of the fact that some people still prefer a printed version, we will make one available. A paper slip will be left in family mailboxes where you can indicate your preference: digital or paper.
Have a great week.
West-Mont Montessori maintains an online calendar that shows important dates that occur throughout the year. This calendar will be updated to reflect the 2012-13 school year in the summer months. Additionally we have added a calendar that shows after school activities going on at West-Mont. If you are not sure when an after-school activity is happening or where in the school, this calendar will provide the details. Additionally, if you are considering booking the gym for a birthday party or other activity, this calendar will show availability.
If you are looking for documents such as the Parent Handbook, Board Policies, Fees, etc., these can be found by selecting "Documents" from the navigation to the left. Board meeting notes can be found by selecting "Board" from the same navigation list.
