All this week we are collecting non-perishable food items for the Goldstream Foodbank.

If you have any items to donate please drop them off across from our office by Friday the 13th.

Thanks 🙂 


This year, based on the consensus of the PAC members, we have decided to request that families make a one-time monetary contribution to the PAC in lieu of the various fundraising events that have previously occurred throughout the year. For all information please see attached links.

All this information has also been emailed to parents.




The annual Turkey Trot will take place at 1:20PM tomorrow.  Students will complete a short walk around our community.  Up Shaw Avenue, through the fire gate from Shaw Avenue down to Florence Lake Road returning to the school up Setchfield Avenue.  We will be collecting non-perishable food items for those less fortunate so that they can have a wonderful Thanksgiving just like us!  We are asking all students to bring in one non-perishable food item that will be delivered to the Goldstream Food Bank.  If you would like to join your child’s class let the teacher know and be at the school at 1:20 tomorrow.  We wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Meet the Staff Night with Ed Peekekoot

Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 18th

Similar to last year, a food truck will be on site for you to purchase food if you want to starting at 5PM.

  • 5:00PM L’Authentique Poutine and Burgers Food Truck  will be available for families from 5PM on.  Please see the attached menu.
  • Classrooms will be open and families are welcome to check out their child’s new classroom.
  • 5:30PM -6PM Check out your child’s classroom, mix and mingle with staff.
  • 6:00PM- 6:30PM Ed Peekeekoot Performance in the gymnasium: peekeekoot.ca

This is an opportunity for you to visit your child’s classroom and see where the learning takes place.  We will be gathering in the gymnasium at 6:00PM.  We are excited to have Ed Peekekoot performing for us from 6 to 6:30PM.

This evening is designed as a casual get together, it is not intended as a time to “find out how your child is doing”.  If you wish to discuss your child’s learning needs, you will need to schedule a meeting at another time that works for you and your child’s teacher.

Ed Peekeekoot, Cree Musician and Artist

Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and story-teller, Ed Peekeekoot is a skilled and seasoned performer. He has a timeless kind of cool that appeals to audiences of all ages.  Ed’s performances go from blazing guitar work to foot stomping fiddle and haunting Native flute – all sprinkled with his Cree humor and philosophy. He takes people on a wildly varied musical journey from country folk to a touch of classical and jazz.

We hope to see you tomorrow night!!
