School Council News

Welcome back students and families! We all hope you enjoyed a wonderful summer holiday! As in previous years, the School Council will continue to run the snack and hot lunch program.  The snack program is run by parent volunteers on Monday and Wednesday mornings. If you have approximately 1 hour to spare on either of these days anytime throughout the year, please text Heather Cameron at 780.263.1990 or there is also information and a sign-up sheet on the door of the school kitchen. The hot lunch program is offered various times a month throughout the year, this is not a fundraising initiative but rather an option extended to students and parents as an alternative to packed lunches. Hot lunch will start in October and order forms will be sent home with students along with volunteering options.

École Westhaven School will be collecting receipts for the Boston Pizza Team HQ program again this year. Please bring in your Boston Pizza receipts to the office to help our school earn a free pizza party later on in the year (note that the receipts expire after 28 days from issue).

The School Council has chosen to participate in two fundraising initiatives this fall. Please watch for the DHL fundraising packages being sent home with students before Thanksgiving and we will offer an Epicure fundraiser in November. We organize fundraisers throughout the year to help with various programs and costs that the School Council provides and is responsible for, including the snack program, playground maintenance, subsidizing field trips and supplying agendas for all students.

The Halloween Dance will be held near the end of October, watch for our scaretastic notice in your kids backpacks outlining date and details.

The School Council holds a meeting the first (non-holiday) Monday of each month. We welcome and appreciate parent attendance and input. Our next meeting will be on Monday, October 1, 2018 at 7:00pm in the school library.  We are looking forward to sharing a fun year ahead!
