Thank you to all the K - 2 families who came out to our mystery themed literacy evening on Tuesday, February 26th. Because research shows that parent involvement in school can improve academic achievement, reading performance, attendance, and behavior, we were thrilled that 100 parents and children that came out to the event and travelled to a variety of stations. We trust that it was time well spent as you collected strategies that can help support your child’s literacy growth at home. A big thank you to all our volunteers who generously gave of their time to make for an enjoyable evening. We really appreciate that Confetti Sweets supplied us with delicious cookies at a significant discount to help make our evening extra special. If you were not able to attend this event, please stay tuned for another family night in the future. A special thank you to Westboro’s Parents’ Group for supporting this event financially.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30 days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
Stand As One
The students of Westboro Elementary School put their hearts into creating this special song and video that pays tribute to survivors of residential schools. We hope to spread the message of hope and love, and above all, encourage others to come together to “Stand as One” in our journey towards reconciliation.
