News from PSC

Please note that there is no milk on May the 20th and instead we will have it on Friday May 24th.

With the recent passing of our schools name sake Jean Vanier, Parent Council would like to honor this amazing man by raising money for the foundation he founded L’Arche. We will be hosting Loonie for L’Arche on May 16th during last recess. Parent Council will be selling popcorn for a loonie or more and all proceeds will go to L’Arche.

News from BUCPS

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY - UFEST 2019 (May 24/25, 2019 - Borden Park)

We are excited to announce that we will have a booth set up to promote the Ukrainian Bilingual program in Sherwood Park. The UFest Edmonton Ukrainian Festival is a celebration of Ukrainian culture, food, music, visual arts, crafts and dance ( Our booth is located in the Vendor Village which is right in the heart of the festival, so you will have access to the entire event!

We are looking for volunteers to be at our booth - shifts are only 1 hour long (consider taking 2 shifts or more if you can spare the time!) Easy to schedule in if you and your family will be at the event anyways! Plus we will be sharing a booth with our friends at Viter, so each shift will have at least 2 volunteers in the booth at all times.

Email Jennifer Lychak, BUCPS Secretary at or text (780-318-4068) if you can help out!


Please join us for our upcoming BUCPS Meeting next week - Monday, May 13th at 7:00PM - in the St. Theresa School Library.

We look forward to seeing you there!
