First Aid Kit

Last call for ordering

It is our emergency policy to keep an earthquake/emergency kit in the centre for the children.  However, we highly encourage parents to purchase an individual first aid kit for your child.
For $33.95, Survivormate Critter Kids Kit includes emergency food and water, first aid kit and more.  Please visit their website www.survivormate.com for more information.

You can let any of the teachers know if you’re interested.



Terry Fox National School Run

We are holding a Little Fox Run.  The children will go for a run on the field at Fox Park and in the spirit of giving, we ask that parents donate a dollar for your child’s participation.  All proceeds will go to The Terry Fox Foundation.  Thank you for your support.



We would like to welcome the families of Nyeela, Reeve, Pedro and Archer.  We say goodbye to Austin who’s off to kindergarten.  Let’s also welcome Julie, our volunteer and Shakila, our practicum student, who will be helping us out this month.



French Class

French class starts this month.  The children will learn basic French from our teacher, Nazila.  She teaches French in various centres in the Tri-cities.  Classes will be held every other Friday.
