From the Principal/Welcome Message
Hello Wildcat Parents,
We are well underway in our new Den and the vast majority of the glitches have been worked out. Through it all, our students have been AMAZING. The teaching and learning opportunities in this building are second to none and we are very excited to see what the rest of this 2019/2020 school year brings for our students and staff.
We started Term Two on December 9 and it will now run until March 18, 2020. The Christmas break is fast approaching and students will be welcomed back on Monday, January 6 for the second half of the year. Our Open House, as well as Parent teacher interviews, have come and gone. Thank you to all of the parents who were able to attend one, or both, of the events. If you were unable to make it out, please touch base with your child's teachers to set up a time to meet with them and discuss how things are going. Please stay connected with your child’s progress through PowerSchool, or by staying in contact with their teachers via email, as students can start to become complacent at this time of year. You can also access provincial curriculum through the www.learnalberta.ca website if you happen to be doing work with them at home.
Upcoming in our Den will be the Christmas Band Concert on December 11 from 7-9 pm. We encourage all families to come and take part in this amazing event showcasing our students' talents in our new gymnasium.
Basketball season is well underway with City and Bantam teams having been selected and league play is getting going. We encourage your child to get involved in many of the events our school has to offer.
All of us at Westpark want to ensure your child has an amazing three years here in our Den. Please encourage them to get involved, be active, and most of all to be proud to be a WILDCAT.
