From the Principal/Welcome Message
Remember a couple newsletters ago when we were talking about how fast time was going...can you believe this is the last newsletter of the year….what a blur. June will also prove to be a busy month for us.
If you have not driven by the new den recently...you ought to. They are making tremendous progress over there and we are still on schedule to open in September 2019.
This Wednesday, June 6, we have our “Westpark Celebrates Learning!” event from 4:00 - 6:00 pm here at the school. It will be an exciting way to cap off an amazing year. Please come out and see what the students have done over the course of the year at our “Catwalk” of student projects in the Gathering Area and classrooms. Face painting, balloon animals, and a hot dog BBQ for our students and their families are also part of the event.
On Thursday, June 7th is our Summer Band Concert. Come and enjoy the wonderful talents of our tremendous Band students. It begins at 7:00 pm in the gym.
June will be a bittersweet month for us as Nancy Crysler will be saying goodbye to us, as she off to new adventures in retirement. Tania Diletzoy will also be leaving us this year. She is going to Glendale where she will be their counselor. Julie Grobe will be taking a year off to welcome a new family member to their home, but will be back for the 2019 school year. They have truly been an inspiration to work with and we wish them well on their new paths. Change is inevitable and as we say farewell to Nancy and Tania, and wish Julie and her husband well in their new life as parents, we say hello to: Lisa Robertson (our new LAT), Ben Hankins (teacher), Ashley Fehr (teacher) Helen Beatty (educational assistant) and Gaylene Mackay (English as a Second Language Coordinator). We also welcome back Rhehlyn Padura (educational assistant) who will be returning from her maternity leave.
Our exams will start the week on June 18 and run all the way to June 26 so please keep posted on the exam schedule in this newsletter and on our school calendar. Our year end field trips are also marked on the calendar:
Our last day of school is Thursday, June 28th. Students are dismissed 1 hour early at 1:37 pm.
We wish all of you the very best summer and great success for you next year. Take care Wildcats...take some time to enjoy what is important.
