Kindergarten Update November 3

Friday was a cold, windy day.  Students stayed indoors for both recesses, and we cancelled our nature walk.  Hopefully next week is a bit warmer!  We had library with Ms. Elo.  We did a nature walk inside instead of outside, and saw surprising amount of flora and fauna inside the school.  We spent some time with our grade 4 buddies, and our the grade fours traced the outline of each kindergarten student, to get ready for our project for "I Am Unique".  

Book order forms for November went home today.  There are two separate order forms, once for our regular See Saw program, and one for special Christmas books.  Both forms are due back next Thursday, November 9.  Payments can be made through Scholastic online, or by cash or cheque at school.  If you are ordering books for Christmas that you would not like your child to see, please let me know and I will make sure when the order comes in that the books are wrapped and not visible.  There should be one more book order before Christmas.

Parent-teacher interviews are Wednesday, November 8 and Thursday, November 9 from 4:00-8:00.  You can still go to the website below to sign up for a time slot to discuss your child's learning.  If your family is new to Westmount, you will need to register your student to be able to sign up. The sign up will be available on Wednesday October 25 at 9:00 AM and it will not close until end of the day on Thursday November 9.
