West Island of Montreal, 22 June 2021
We would like to inform you of the situation of the school opening following the latest developments regarding the pandemic.
During the past School year (2020-2021), our Pythagoras School continued to operate successfully with a limited number of students (24-25) in our church basement hall.
There were 3 groups: Kindergarden, Grades 1-2-3, and Grades 4,5,6 with three teachers.
For the next school year 2021-2022, since we are not sure how many parents are willing to register their kids in our school, we will keep all options open, until we have a better view of the situation.
If the number of students are below 30, we will continue operating in the church basement. If the number of students are more, we will have to look for rental in public schools.
Knowing that even the school boards have not yet decided on the conditions regarding the operation of the schools, and not having any concrete information about the rental availabilities of schools in our area, and having carefully weighed in all possible options, the Community Council after consultation with the representative of the Parents’ Committee and the school Principal, have decided to leave all options open and proceed with the pre-registration of the students of our Saturday school Pythagoras.
Naturally, this would depend on our being offered a school premises, on the number of students registered, and on the new measures that would have to be implemented in order to assure the safety of the children.
Our community school “Pythagoras” is very important to us as we are sure it is important to you.
It is the only place that allows us to teach our children about their Greek identity, the language of their parents and grant parents, the Orthodox religion and culture
It is imperative that parents preregister their children so that we are in a position to know whether to proceed with our Saturday school classes or not. In order to operate the school we need a definite number of 50 + students to ensure the financial viability of the school.
The parents who would like to preregister are kindly requested to fill the registration form attached herewith, include a check to the amount of $50.00 (part of the student fee) and mail it to the Greek Community of West Island (20 Blvd. Brunswick, Dollard-des-Ormeaux., P.Q, H9B 2N8, or they may pass by the office and deposit the above, or make the registration (by emailing it at email@example.com. subject SCHOOL) and payment online through PAYPAL using your PAYPAL account (if you have one) or using a credit card. Follow the instructions below.
If you need any further information, please contact Christina Kamperidis at (514) 488-8082 or Irene Kafiri at (438) 498-7360
In the event of cancellation of the classes the deposit will be returned.
