Students will be registering for their 2018-2019 courses in April, and to make that task a bit easier, we are asking that parents/guardians become involved as well. The online system that we are continuing to use is called MyBlueprint and can be accessed at https://myblueprint.ca/. There is a powerpoint attachment on the Westisle Parents Facebook page that provides a step-by-step approach to accessing this program as well as things to keep in mind as your child is thinking about next year’s courses.
A big thank you to Mr. Doucette for creating this resource for parents/guardians. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact the school.
Last week Student Council planned many lunchtime activities celebrating the Olympics. Some of the activities included: tape to the wall challenge, mini-stick tournament, Jersey Day, sled-dog races, and a polar-bear dip.
Westisle would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in bringing in food in for Staff Appreciation last week. It was all so delicious and very much appreciated. A special thank you to Kelly Herget for organizing and getting volunteers for the week.
