  • As the weather is getting colder and wetter, please make sure your child has a change of clothes in their back pack at all times.
  • Please label your child’s hoodies and jackets as these are the majority of the items in the LOST & FOUND.
  • Please remember to do the Daily Health Check with your child and keep them home if your child is sick. This is still so important and we all really appreciate your support in keeping everyone healthy and safe.

There is a final chance for students to purchase who may have forgotten their money or have been away.  This can be done on Tuesday morning before the fair closes at recess.

Parent in-person shopping:

The Book Fair is happening in half of the Gym this year to allow for more space and access to an exterior door so that parents can come and shop at the end of the day.  Please try to keep to one adult family member to come and make purchases. A QR code will be at the door to access our Health Check on cell phones and will be a required part of the check in process for adults who wish shop at the book fair.  We will limit numbers to 10-15 parents in the space at a time.  We ask for your patience in forming a line-up outside the Gym doors as we manage our numbers inside.

Parents can purchase in person at the following times:
-Thursday Dec 2nd 2:30-3:30pm
-Friday Dec 3rd 2:30-3:30pm
-Monday Dec 6th 2:30-3:30pm

For any families that would like to shop virtually our Lakewood link is: https://virtualbookfairs.scholastic.ca/pages/5161107
There is some difference between in person and online so feel free to shop one or both versions.


Parent volunteers will be needed to help run the fair.  If you have some time that you can contribute please email Ms. Bouvier at cbouvier@sd62.bc.ca


For Parents and Guardians:

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it a lot of change, loss and grief. For many youth, not only are all the missed milestones and celebrations challenging, but they are also dealing with the loss of intangible things such as security, familiarity, closeness etc.
Friends of Living and Learning Through Loss will be holding this special, 90-minute virtual workshop for parents, grandparents, teachers, counsellors and other adults who would like to learn more about how to recognize and help grieving youth through this challenging time.

WHEN: Tuesday, November 23 from 6:30-8:00pm.
