School News:


Today you will receive an email* notifying you that your student(‘s) verification forms have now been published in your MyEducation BC Family Portal Account. Please ensure you review this information sheet by logging in to your portal account. Please email johnstubbs@sd62.bc.ca with any changes that need to be made.

Student Verification Forms are a vital way to ensure the school has all your correct information on file. You will review such things as your address, contact phone numbers, those authorized to pick up your student and medical/legal alerts.

*Email notifications for the MyEducation Portal comes from sysadmin@myeducation.gov.bc.ca please double check your junk folders if you are having a hard time locating it.


Do not miss the opportunity to order school photos. See attached poster for 10% discount code.
Remember! Retake day is on Tuesday November 10th!


As we head into our wet and cold months please dress your students appropriately for the weather. We always make it a priority to send the children outside in most weather conditions.


Our school would like to continue the tradition we started two years ago by recognizing families who are currently serving or who have served in the military.  During our Remembrance Day assembly, we will show a slide show with photos of those family members.  If you have sent photos in the past, your photo will remain in the slideshow.  You do not need to send it again.  We look forward to seeing your photos.  Please email them to Mellissa Ryan at mryan@sd62.bc.ca by November 6th at the latest.


Remote learners who would like to return to in-class learning can do so on November 12, 2020. In order to have your child return to in-class learning we must have written confirmation sent to dlisrael@sd62.bc.ca by no later than Friday November 6, 2020.
