Dear Westmount Parents and Guardians,

Last week we published the following message in the weekly newsletter:

Potential School Fee Increase of an Additional $10 per Student for the 2018/19 School Year

In the coming weeks, administration will determine whether or not to recommend an increase of $10/student to the instructional resource fee to cover the cost of the PowerLearn module. If an increase is recommended, the change will be presented at May’s School Council meeting.

I am pleased to announce that there will be no increases to school fees for the 2018/19 school year. After a second round of budget preparation discussions, we have the capacity to absorb the costs for the first year of implementation of the Powerlearn modules.

Joe Frank
