School Calendars

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

 As you may know, the district completed a consultation process in the fall regarding the preparation of school calendars. Please find attached the draft School Calendars for each of the next three school years. These calendars were built in constultation with DPAC, school PAC’s, school and district staff, and with the feedback received from the school calendar survey that was available to all parents and staff in December.

 One item to note is for the 2020-2021 calendar, only one week, of the two week spring break, is aligned with Vancouver Metro area school districts. The reason for this is that consultation feedback indicated that it was preferable to include the Easter Holiday in the Spring Break.

 Please review the local school calendars and feedback can be provided to your school principal. These draft calendars will be presented to the Board of Education for approval at their regular March public meeting and the final approved calendars will be sent to you at that time.

Dear VCE Families,

 We hope you have had a great week! Please take time on this upcoming Family Day to enjoy time together.

 Mrs. Nunn and Ms. Brant’s class are doing a kindness project. As part of their project they are doing kind acts for different organizations in our community. They are looking for your help!

 Here is what they are looking for:
– Canned/dry dog food, dog toys and extra-large puppy training pads to donate to the Squamish SPCA
– Used or new adult gloves and new medium sized adult underwear to donate to Helping Hands
– Non-perishable food items like canned soups, dry pasta and rice to donate to the Squamish food bank

If you are able to donate any of these items please drop them off at either Mrs. Nunn’s classroom, Ms. Brant’s classroom or in the office. Thank you!

Pink Shirt Day is coming up! Check out the attached photo displaying the variety of buttons for sale on Feb 25 & 26th. They will be sold outside of Ms. Dawson’s classroom at recess and lunch, or until they sell out!
