Good afternoon, parents,

What an amazing experience we had serving at the Soup Kitchen! It warmed my heart to see the students love on others, and have a great time while doing it! Thank you, parents, for all the donations of food. It was greatly appreciated!

Science and Technology Week

It’s that time of year when we celebrate our Creator God and the wonder of science! We have some special activities planned throughout the week:

Chat with Jay Scotland: Jay Scotland, meteorologist for CBC Compass, will join our elementary students to chat about extreme weather and Hurricane Fiona. The date and time are yet to be determined.

Periodic Table Cookie Sale: Students will have an opportunity to enjoy a treat next Wednesday, thanks to Mrs. Biech and her willingness to share her periodic table cookies.

Dress Like a Scientist Day: On Thursday, students are encouraged to come dressed as a professional who works in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Digital Art Activity: Elementary students will be creating realistic landscape photographs using digital art sketches they design in Art class.

A Note from Mrs. Wilting about the Christmas Concert

Dear Parents,

We are very excited to announce that we are in the beginning stages of preparing our annual Christmas presentation. The elementary students have been reading through scripts and learning songs in class the last few weeks. This year we will be presenting “Christmas at Bethlehem Gulch” a children’s musical with a western feel about the coming of the Saviour written by Pam Andrews.

We are anticipating a live, in-house, concert as we have done in years past. The musical has an “Old West” theme and we will need a few items brought in for concert dress. All students are required to bring in a pair of dark or light jeans and a multi-coloured plaid shirt. If students have items such as western vests, chaps, boots, kerchiefs, or cowboy hats please add them as they may be used for the main cast. Please refrain from bringing in holsters or plastic guns. Place items in a bag labeled with your students name on it and please bring it into school by Thursday, Dec. 1.  Students are to give the bag to the classroom teacher.

We are looking forward to sharing our work with you. Thank you for your cooperation and help with the costuming. If you have any concerns please email me at

Flanders Field

Students will be sent home with a copy of Flanders Field which will be recited at the upcoming Remembrance Day Ceremony.
