Welcome back to West Dalhousie School! To all our new families, we welcome you warmly and hope to see you at our upcoming events or school council meetings. To all of our returning families, we hope you had a wonderful summer and are ready to get back to school!
School council will formally welcome you back on Thursday, September 14 at our annual Muffin Mixer in the gym. Starting at 7:30 a.m., you can join us for breakfast, coffee and a chance to meet the West Dalhousie community. Our first school council meeting of the year will also be on September 14 at 7:00 p.m. in the learning commons. School council meetings are the best way to meet the staff, other parents, and find out about the happenings in the school.
Once you receive your welcome package, please make sure to sign up for volunteering here on the website under the volunteer tab. There are lots of different opportunities to volunteer, from field trips to special events to in-class help. Our greatest need this fall will be for our casino. This is our number one source of fundraising dollars at the school, supporting technology, field trips, the learning commons and more! You can sign up online or email us with any questions. We need 40 volunteers to secure this major source of fundraising dollars.
We will also be selling the ADmazing Coupon Book to support Nature’s Place this fall. This fundraising helps us maintain Nature’s Place and support the students’ learning of our naturalization area. Last year some of the funds were used on professional pruning and weeding as well as the grade 6 legacy gift (look for the 2017 classes’ gift this fall!).
