Boxes are now in each classroom to collect your donations for your class basket for the silent auction.  Donations don’t need to be expensive, but they need to be new.  Be creative!  If you have a business – promote it.  Help make the basket auction a success by donating to your classroom basket!  Donations are due May 17. 

(note we are not doing Luck of the Draw this year, nor is there themes for the baskets)

We still need LOTS of volunteers to help with the games and generally help make this event great. To sign up for a one-hour shift, please visit https://volunteersignup.org/DQ8PB

School District Office




To enhance the level of emergency preparedness for all schools, the District will be implementing Standard Emergency Reunification Procedures to ensure the safety and well-being of all students in the aftermath of a disaster.  This process includes staff training, parent education, and an emergency reunification drill for staff, students, parents, and authorized guardians at all schools.  Lakewood Elementary will be practicing this Emergency Reunification Drill on Thursday April 18th.  Parents and all authorized guardians listed on a Students Release Form are asked to participate.  This will be an opportunity for parents to exercise their family’s emergency plan in conjunction with the school’s emergency plan.  Parent information will be shared on the evening of April 9th in conjunction with the PAC meeting.  The parent information session will be held from 6:30 – 7:30 pm in the library and/or gym depending on numbers.  This workshop will explain the District’s post-disaster emergency student release procedures, and what to expect during the school’s reunification drill.  All participants will receive an emergency planning package and will be given a list of considerations when writing your families emergency plan. 


Please RSVP by this Wednesday, April 3rd if you will be attending the Parent Reunification Information Evening next Tuesday, April 9th at 6:30PM.  Please indicate how many will be attending, send your response to Ms. Willner at rwillner@sd62.bc.ca 

Thanks in advance and we hope to see everyone next Tuesday.

Family Dance Feb 28



Good morning families, 

It is great to see everyone this morning and our students are excited to be back and engaged in Valentine’s activities.  Thanks to Ms. Bouvier, the Book Fair has been held over!  It is open all day today until 3:15PM.  If you can’t make it today, it will also be open all day next Tuesday until 3:15PM.  

If you are able to volunteer at the book fair either today or next Tuesday, Ms. Bouvier would really appreciate the help.  You can just stop by the library.  


Thanks and have a great day.

Thank you to those of you who have taken the time to register for Cash on Line, or have already made a PAC Donation.

Here are a few hints for those that may be having troubles completing the process:

  • The consent must be completed to register your student;
  • After competing the consent you need to wait 2 or 3 days, to give our IT Department time to upload the information;
  • You must use the same email address that you have registered with the school’s student information system (you will already be getting school emails to that address);
  • Only use your child’s last name (you were provided first and last, as many parents have more than one child at the school, and the Student # is Student specific; and lastly
  • your child’s birth date.

Please let us know if you are still having issues after following these tips.

Pizza Lunch-Whole School


It’s official – Lakewood Elementary won the Battery Blitz competition in December!  Our prize, a pizza lunch for the school, will be granted on Monday, January 21st.  Students have placed their orders with teachers and will receive one piece each on Monday at lunch.  This prize did not include snacks or drinks so families will need to provide those items for their child.

We are looking for parent volunteers to assist the distribution of pizza at 11 am on Monday so please let Ms. Deichmann know if you can assist at cdeichmann@sd62.bc.ca.


Congratulations, Lakewood!
