  • Consignment - Toonie Sale

    Our Consignment Store is overflowing with uniform pieces.  As you watch your children grow and outgrow their clothes, or as you begin to anticipate the next school year, this is the time for a Consignment Blow Out Toonie Sale!  Any and all uniform pieces that have been donated to the school will be on sale for $2 per item.  This sale will take place on Monday, June 7th and Tuesday, June 8th from 1:30 – 3:00pm in front of the school.  We will follow all COVID protocols, and more information about the sale will come out soon.

    As we prepare for this sale, if you have uniform pieces that you would like to donate for another family to use, you may drop off your items at the school from May 17th – June 4th.  The items must only be uniform pieces, they must be in good condition, and they must be clean.  Please place your items in a bag and drop them off inside the front door of the school.

    If you have previously given the school uniform pieces that you want sold for a particular price, these items will not be included in our Consignment Blow Out Toonie Sale.

  • School Calendar - Updates and Changes

    St. John Brebeuf has made a change to their school calendar, which has a ripple effect on our school.  Please note the following:

    • May 27th – this is a new early dismissal day at SJB only.  Please note that their students will be dismissed at 12:00pm, but we will be in session the full day

    We have made a change to our school calendar.  Please note that our Planning Day will now be on Monday, June 14th, so there is no school for students.  We will now have a regular school day on Monday, June 21st.

  • Lost and Found

    Once again our Lost and Found bin is overflowing.  Items have been placed on a table in the school hallway for students to look through, but very few items have been claimed.  The table will be brought outside on Tuesday, May 25th near the end of the school day for parents to take a look at, and then placed outside the YMCA Kids Club for parents who pick up there to also look through.  Any items not claimed by the end of the week will be donated to charity.

  • Victoria Day - No School

    Monday, May 24th is Victoria Day.  Please note that the school will be closed on May 24th for the long weekend.

  • Zumbathon 2021 Update

    Thank you very much to all those families who have brought in their pledge form and money collected so far.  We look forward to sharing our total money raised with the school community very soon.

    It is amazing to see that every pledge counts, no matter the dollar value.  All students who have submitted their pledge sheets by yesterday are eligible to earn Prize Raffle Tickets which many can’t wait to use for the Zumbathon Prize Rally in early June.  To keep the Zumbathon “momentum” going, please hand in your pledge sheets and money collected as soon as possible.  Please note that pledging online is now closed; however, we are still collecting pledge sheets and money in the office.

    Thank you for your support of our great school!

  • Daily Health Check App

    The Province of BC has created a new Daily Health Check App for parents to use each morning to assess the health of their child before they head off to school.  This is a fun and interactive way to find out if you should stay home until you feel better, or get further health information by calling 811.  To use the Daily Health Check App on your desktop computer, please click here.  To download the app on your mobile device, please click here.

  • Daily Health Check

    Parents are asked to complete a Daily Health Check of their children each morning before they come to school.  Please assess your child for the following symptoms:

    • Fever
    • Chills
    • Cough or worsening of chronic cough
    • Shortness of breath
    • Loss of sense of smell or taste
    • Diarrhea
    • Nausea and vomiting

    If your child has one of those symptoms, excluding fever, they should stay home for 24 hours from when the symptom started.  If the symptom improves, they may return to school when they feel well enough.  If the symptom persists or worsens, seek a health assessment.  If your child has two or more of the symptoms, or they have a fever, you should seek a health assessment for them.
