Mme. Deidre's Teacher Page!
I would like to welcome all the new kindergarten and returning students to École Westhaven School. I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your child this year in French Immersion Kindergarten!
Grande Yellowhead Public School Division offers an Expanded Full-Day Kindergarten Program. It will be introduced gradually so that your child will have an opportunity to adjust to being at school all day. The first week of school will be staggered entry. What this means is that ½ of the class will attend school all day Tuesday, September 4th, while the other ½ of the class will attend all day Wednesday, September 5th. This allows your child the opportunity to attend their first day of Kindergarten in a smaller group, giving them an opportunity to become familiar with me and their new classroom in a smaller group setting. For the remainder of September, all Kindergarten students will attend school on a weekly basis; Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 3:11 p.m.
During the first week of school, your will receive our first classroom newsletter for the month of September. This is an information reference for you to be aware of important dates and activities happening in our classroom and around the school.
