We are one day away from the last day of the semester! Congratulations on finishing another year at school.

I hope you all have some fun things to look forward to in the summer and come back to school feeling recharged and refreshed.

Our first day back at school is a short day on Tuesday September 5. Grade 8s are at school from 10:30-11:30am and grade 9 to 12 students are here from 11-11:30am.

Have a safe summer and see you in September!

Grouse Mountain Field Trip

Forms have been handed out for the Grouse Mountain field trip. Students must select either the Grouse Grind option ($18) or the First Nations and nature option ($30).

You must get your forms signed by your teachers as you will be missing a day of classes, and your parent/custodian.

Forms are due back to Ms Ikeda by Thursday May 4.

Upcoming field trips

All ELL classes will be going to Grouse Mountain for a trip to enjoy the Canadian outdoors on Friday May 19th. There will be two program options: the Grouse Grind or the nature and wildlife tour. Permission forms to come!
