Thank you! Thank you!

The Westwood Staff have been spoiled this week and we want to say a huge thank you to all the families who sent in food, cards and took the time to reach out and thank us for all of our hard work and dedication.  We think Westwood is a wonderful place to be and this week only highlighted how fortunate we are in this community.  Have an amazing long weekend!  See everyone on Tuesday!

Our progress so far this year…

It is hard to believe, but we are almost half way through the school year!  At Westwood, we are committed to continual professional growth. As educators, we are dedicated and focused on providing quality education for all of our students.  An important part of growth is taking the time to reflect on all the positive things happening at Westwood.  Our school goals team met last week to review all of the work we have completed thus far on our school goals.  Please click on the following to read on all the great things happening at Westwood!

A mountain of LOST and FOUND




Dear Families, 

Our lost and found bins are once again overflowing!  Today, we weeded out items with names, but this is what has been collected since Mid-December (three tables)!!!  Teachers send their students up to check for lost items, but we notice that children don’t often recognize their own things.  If you are missing any clothing, would you please stop by the school and have a look?   These items will be bagged up and sent to charity by the end of next week (January 26th).

Also, please ensure you are labeling ALL of your children’s clothes.  This helps us get things back to their owners!

Desperately Seeking Breakfast Program Volunteers !!

We are in need of volunteers for our Breakfast Program!! Particularly for Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Our Breakfast Program is incredibly busy and an important part of our school day. We simply cannot run it without our amazing volunteers. Volunteering for the program will take a little over an hour of your time in the morning (7:45 – 9:00 a.m. or so). We appreciate the volunteer efforts of parents, grandparents, and community members in keeping this wonderful program going. Please contact Terra at 902-368-6855 if you are interested in volunteering (or need more information).  All volunteers must complete a criminal record check including the vulnerable sector. 

Unfortunately, if we are unable to secure enough volunteers our Breakfast Program is at risk of closing on some days.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Over the last couple of weeks, Christmas spirit has taken over Westwood Primary as each hollow attempted to “out do” each other decorating, showcasing their work and sharing their Christmas joy.  On Friday, Hot 105.5 visited to judge our decorated hollows and chose Yellow Hollow as the winners in the hollow challenge.   Well done, Yellow!  Of course, we think all of our hollows were beautiful and that all of our students and teachers did an amazing job!

Yellow Hollow – Santa’s Workshop Winners
Green Hollow – Land of Sweets – Nutcracker
Blue Hollow – Griswald’s Family Chirstmas
Red Hollow – Winter Wonderland

Wishing all of our Westwood families a wonderful Chirstmas and a very happy New Year! See you in 2018!
