Amazing Response to Fundraiser

Thank you for all the pizza orders that came in to support our spring fundraiser. In total we sold 2,410 pizzas and 221 pizza screens! The funds raised have been given to the school to subsidize the cost of the spring field trips and activity days.


The following classes had top sales and won a class pizza party:

Grade 5 - 5MK - sold 175 pizzas

Grade 7 - 7KW - sold 156 pizzas

Grade 8 - 8MG - sold 173 pizzas

Grade 6 - there were 2 classes that were so close in sales that we decided to give them both a party! 6YB sold 433 pizzas and 6KB sold 441 pizzas.


The top three sellers from the school:

1st - Karly D - won a hoverboard and helmet

2nd - Ezra L - won a family night at the movies and snacks

3rd - Sara D - won a family swim at the Aquatic Center


Thank you for your amazing support and hope you enjoy your pizzas!

Reminders for Students in June

2022-2023 Registration Forms

Attention All Parents!

In May, registration forms were sent/emailed home for next year's Grade 6-8 students. If you did not receive a registration form for your student, or have misplaced it, please contact the school office and we will send home another package.


If your child will not be returning to our school next year, please call the school to advise, as we are currently in the process of preparing our class lists for next year and we want to ensure that our enrolment information is correct.


Thank you for your attention to this matter!

End of Year Report Cards

Sign up for Parent Portal!

Final Report Cards for this year will be available on the Parent Portal only (no paper copies will be mailed out). If you have not yet signed up for your Parent Portal Account, please contact the school and we can send the directions and access codes you will need to set up your account.


There are many advantages to having a Parent Portal Account!

* A great communication tool between home and school

* Secure online access to your student information

--- Make sure school has correct contact information

--- Send attendance notes to school instead of emailing or phoning

--- Make payment on account for school fees, field trips, sports fees, etc.

--- Sign consent forms

--- Easy access to report cards and High School credit information


STAY CONNECTED AND INFORMED - PARTNERS IN EDUCATION

Keep Collecting!

Over the years, our school has always encouraged students to keep their can tabs and add them to our "stockpile" at school. A local representative for Tabs for Wheelchairs has come regularly to pick up these tabs and we have been proud to have been part of presenting wheelchairs to young people who need specialized equipment.


Thanks to everyone who has supported this worthwhile program.
