GRADE 7 YEAR-END CELEBRATION – TODAY!!! Monday, June 22nd at 11:30 am

Morning, Gr. 7 Year-end Celebration Today

We are starting at 11:30. Due to the weather, cloud cover and expected rain we will be going with the rainy day plan – cars will come up McLeod street and drive around the block waiting in line for their turn on Bowser street facing the highway. The cars and students will be recognized in the order they show up. Please be patient and wait your turn. Someone will cue you when its your turn.


See you all soon.


On behalf of all of us, we congratulate all our Grade 7s and wish them all the best in their educational pursuits and life.

Ms. Campbell


The school has placed a hoodie order at the high school. Come September, a HSS Spartans hoodie will be awaiting your child’s arrival.


BC Summer Reading Club Goes Online

BC Summer Reading Club Goes Online

For nearly 30 years, the BC Summer Reading Club (BC SRC) has motivated kids to continue reading and learning during the summer months. Kids ages 5-14 register for this free program with their local public library. They record their reading progress, building self-confidence and developing their reading skills, while participating in fun activities.

This year, thanks in part to funding from the Ministry of Education, the BC SRC has added the option for readers to participate online, so that families have access even if they aren‘t able to visit their local public library in-person. Some of the exciting new, online features that have been added this year include:

* Kids can earn digital badges for reaching their reading goals as well as a certificate of completion (and in some communities, a medal) for finishing the program.

* A dashboard for parents/guardians to track their kids‘ reading progress and the digital badges they‘ve earned.

* Weekly stay-at-home activity packages.

* Live events and video demonstrations including hands-on crafts and experiments.

This year‘s theme is “Explore Our Universe” featuring illustrations by B.C. artist Bambi Edlund. All reading counts – kids can read whatever they want, in whatever language they feel most comfortable. They can also listen to someone else read or tell stories.

Help keep your students reading and learning this summer by sharing this information with your school families. Online registration begins June 15 at the BC Summer Reading Club website. Participants can also visit their local library to register and learn more about the BC SRC programs being offered in their community.

More information on the 2020 BC Summer Reading Club can also be found in this press release.

Happy reading!
