Westmount Casa parent-child visit

Our Westmount Casa  parent-child class visit last week was buzzing with excitement!  This is an excellent opportunity for the adults to spend some time in their child’s environment in hopes of gaining a better understanding of what their child’s working on each day.  We would like to thank all families for respecting the rules of the classroom and happily engaging with your children while visiting.   We look forward to our next visit.

Oxford Casa Olympic Games!

The Winter Olympic Games at Oxford Casa were so much fun. A big thank you goes out to Bethany for organizing the event, and to our Junior High students for running the stations.
