    Dear Families,

    Kindergarten Registration occurs this week at Arthur Stevenson Elementary. If you are planning on having your child attend kindergarten at our school next year, please be sure to register him/her this week. At the end of the week we will be sending in our registration numbers to our District Office. These numbers will be used to help plan for the number of teachers our school will have next school year.

    1. Kindergarten Registration starts Tuesday morning and runs until Friday at 3:00.  

    2. Basketball on Tuesday: Tier 1 Boys host Dallas in our gym. Tier 2 Boys travel to Arthur Hatton.

    3. Wednesday is Valentine’s Day. There will be a K-3 dance at recess and a 4-7 dance after lunch. The theme of both dances is Love Your Pet/Pet Appreciation. Students are encouraged to bring in cleaning supplies to be donated to the SPCA. As well, students are also encouraged to bring in a picture of their pet, for display in the gym for the dances.

    4. Students in Mr. Dhaliwal’s and Mrs. Bertoncini’s classes go skating Friday morning.  

    Upcoming Events:

    A reminder that there are two professional development days next week. The school will be closed to students on both Thursday, February 22nd and Friday, February 23rd. These days will be used by teachers to learn more about how to implement the new curriculum effectively.

    Have a wonderful week!

    Mr. Reilly

    Your Support is Needed - Please read the message below regarding the BC Winter Games

    I am the Dorm Captain for WSS during the upcoming BC Winter Games, and I am hoping you can pass this along to your staff, PAC and community.

    As part of the BC Winter Games (Feb 22-25) we are hosting athletes at local high schools - including Westsyde Secondary.  We are extremely low on volunteer dorm hosts for our accommodations team at WSS!  We need dorm host volunteers at all hours of the day.  Teens can volunteer, but parent needs to sign an underage volunteer form - teens would be assigned to work with a responsible adult.

    Duties are general in nature and include maintaining a warm, welcoming and health accommodation site, assist participants with signing in and out, provide general assistance to participants and coaches, as well as general supervision. (Coaches are responsible to monitor participant behaviour.)

    Volunteers can register at the link below.

    IMPORTANT: Under "Volunteer Information", select your 1st choice as "Accommodations - Dorm Management".  When you are called by the volunteer coordinator, you would then request Westsyde Secondary.

    https://www.bcgames.net/kam2018w/VolunteerModule/register.aspx

    Please feel free to pass this along to any groups/individuals that can help us at WSS.

    Thank you!

    Mark McVittie
