WELCOME TO WESTMOUNT J.S.

Westmount's Newsletter

Our entire school participated in "The Hour Of Code". The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Ask you child what their favourite game was. We played Scratch, Lightbot, Scratch, Daisy the Dinosaur, The Foos, and Hopscotch. 
The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. Computer Science Education Week was December 7-13, 2015.

Greetings Westmount Families, Unfortunately, we cannot send home Progress Report cards until December 10. Because of previous job action, the central board reporting system will not be updated until December 10 so that all schools will send reports home at the same time. The Progress reporting period is September 8 – October 29, 2015. Your child’s teacher has completed the report card and will be meeting with parents by appointment only to share concerns at this time. All other students will receive their Progress Report card on December 10, 2015.

Westmount Assembly

Westmount celebrated its Fairness Assembly on February 27, 2014.  The theme for this year, Voices of Fairness, showcased quotes from different personalities like Martin Luther King, Bob Marley, Rick Riordan and our very own Ms. Lawrence.  Students who have shown fairness were also acknowledged during the assembly.  Here is the PREZI for Voices of Fairness:
Voices of Fairness
During the assembly Grade 3s also showed stories of fairness using simple animated videos they have been working on.  Here is a sample of  what they have come up with (two others are in the Voices of Fairness link above):



Westmount celebrated Asian Heritage Month together with the Integrity assembly on May 26. The event started with a gamelan (traditional musical percussion instruments from Indonesia) ensemble  and a shadow puppet performance by the grade 5 classes.  Students who have shown integrity in the school were also acknowledged. What is integrity anyway? Here is the video shown during the assembly starring Westmount students and staff:
 

Westmount's Got Talent!

Westmount students and teachers are talented!

This year, we had two concerts, the first one was held in December.  On its second year, it was titled "Westmount's Got Talent Season 2".  Here's a sneak peek of the acts:

Family Potluck Dinner, Open House and Spring Concert

May 7 is a night to remember! Families came to share their food with the entire Westmount community. Parents got to sit down with their children on picnic blankets enjoying good food, siblings got to play on the lawn in front of the school, friends got to chat and bask in the good weather. The potluck, which was oranized by the Parent Council, was then proceeded with an Open House where students got to show off their work in their classrooms. The day was capped off by a concert produced by the Music Department in coordination with the entire staff. Students played different instruments and got to show their singing chops!

Canada Food Guide Radio Ads

As part of their Media Literacy class, students in the Primary Classes create simple media forms.  For example, the Grade 1/2 class created radio ads about the Canada Food Guide.  Here are the radio ads:

Dance A Thon for Tech

As we strive for teaching excellence and learning in the 21st century, we at Westmount come up with creative ways to meet those goals.  This year, we chose to dance our hearts away while raising funds for the technology we use in our classrooms.  With the Parent Council, teachers and students got together to support the technology development program for our school. This year's theme, Wild Thing, indeed brought out different wild things: a student came out wild wild, overgrown sunglasses, Miss Yee and Ms. Bojeczko came out as Thing One and Thing Two, Mr. Shih was Backwards Mr. Shih and some grade ones and twos came their wildest attires!  We now have 20 iPads and 30 netbooks that complement our desktops in the library.
