I’m Thankful for Outdoor Ed!


  • Students were fully engaged in their own free exploration at Williams Park: IMG_20180925_124845pebbles, bugs, water flow and crayfish were their main interests.



  • Walking through Fort Langley helped students to appreciate community features and helpers, like this Pop-up Park.


Our school was a buzz with positive energy (and with wasps) about Terry Fox and Orange Shirt days.

 The week at a glance: October 1 – 5

Themes we will be exploring this week include day/night sky, Thanksgiving traditions and outdoor safety. Please be sure to send your child’s mailbag on Thursday since it’s our only indoor day and there will be notices!

  • Monday – at the park
  • Tuesday – at the park
  • Wednesday – at the park
  • Thursday – at the school. Adventure Smart program.
  • Friday – Professional Development Day. Students do not attend.
  • Monday, Oct. 8 – Holiday

Happy Thanksgiving!

Looking ahead, we will need parent drivers and helpers for our field trip to the Apple Barn on Oct. 15. Forms go home this week.

Lastly, here are two positive things I’d like to share with families:
