Bus Driver Appreciation Day – Friday, May 18, 2018
As a District, we believe it is important to recognize the work that our staff does on behalf of children and families. One important group that too often does not get acknowledgement for their important work is our bus drivers. Each day they safely transport over 3,000 Sooke District students to and from school. Please take a moment to show your appreciation to your bus drivers on this day (and every day).

Vendor and Craft Market – Thursday, May 24, 2018
The Vendor and Craft market will take place in the elementary gym 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

**Bussing information
We’ve been receiving calls about PEN’s (Personal Education Number) and just wanted to clarify that parents do not need PEN’s to sign their child up for school bussing. All they need to do is:

  • Create an account (They do not need to sign a consent form for this)
  • Click on the “Items” tab
  • If their children are already attached, they select the “School District #62 (Sooke)” tab and choose the 2018/2019 School Bus Registration form.

Parents must receive a confirmation email into their email (check trash/junk) to know that you have successfully registered. If you don’t receive the email then something didn’t work.
FYI: Our District is setting up School Cash Online in various schools over the summer so you will eventually need your child’s PEN for paying school fees such as athletic, yearbook, locker, etc. If your child is in Middle School you can find their PEN on the top left hand corner of their report card. If your child is in Elementary School you will need to call the office for their PEN.

Jersey Day, Thursday April 12th

As you may have heard through the media, there is an initiative being organized by a group of BC mothers to support the families and friends of the Humboldt Broncos by wearing a  jersey on April 12th.

We encourage staff and students to wear their sports jerseys, or the colours green and gold, on April 12th to show support for those who have lost loved ones, family members, friends, and teammates. 

Canadians and beyond are grieving the tragic accident that took the lives of 15 Humboldt Broncos Hockey players, in Saskatchewan on April 6. Our District is deeply saddened by this horrible accident, and our thoughts go out to everyone affected by this tragedy.
