 Community Dance- La Folie en Rouge  

Message from the PAC from Ecole Les Aiglons:

As many of you know – over the last four years an event called “la Folie en Rouge” dance has been hosted for grade 4-5-6 kids in our community by Ecole Les Aiglons. The dance is for many children their first social event without parents. Christine McLeod, PAC chair for les Aiglons has organized this event since day one and what makes it unique is the 300 kids coming from EVERY school in our community.  Christine’s email is impactpeoplepractices@gmail.com and her cell is 604.848.9407- please don’t hesitate to contact her with any questions.  Feb 9th at École Squamish Elementary, there is a dance for all Grade 4,5,6 students in Squamish. The dance is hosted by Ecole les Aiglons and the 300 tickets sell out each year. At this point just a little over 100 tickets remain. The dance is a drop off event from 7-9pm and includes a photo booth, concession, draw prizes and two fantastic DJs.  You can purchase tickets at

Caring, Kind, Friendly and Safe…

Dear Families,

After welcoming everyone back, we had a great start to the new year!

Kindergarten and French Immersion Registration for 2019/2020 School Year

Elementary schools in Squamish, Whistler, and Pemberton are welcoming kindergarten registrations: Tuesday, January 22 – 25, 2019 – 8:30 am to 3:30 pm

Parents/Guardians must register at their catchment-area school and provide:

  • Original birth certificate to verify your child will be 5 years old on or before December 31, 2019
  • Care Card
  • Confirmation of residence

Completed registration form (available at your catchment school or http://www.sd48seatosky.org

Kindergarten Immunization Catch-Up Opportunity

Tuesday January 15th 3pm in the Library. This immunization opportunity is for any kindergarten children who have not yet had their kindergarten booster immunizations.  Each child needs to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please bring your child’s immunization records.

Questions please contact Alli Redding – Ecole Squamish Elementary Public Health Nurse @ 604-892-4846 (call or text).

Literacy Week

We are looking forward to the ESQE Literacy Week during the 21st to 25th with the Family Literacy Night on the 23rd and Dress in Character Day on the 25th.

Missoula Children’s Theatre

École Squamish Elementary and the Parents’ Advisory Council is sponsoring the Missoula Children’s Theater Companies performance of ‘SNOW WHITE AND THE 7 DWARFS’ on Saturday, January 26, 2019. This is an exciting opportunity to experience simultaneously, the polished craft of professional theater and the refreshing, energetic talents and skills of our students.  Missoula Children’s Theater touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props and make-up.

Auditions will be held in our school gymnasium at 3:15 PM on Monday, January 21st, 2019.  Approximately sixty of our students from Grade 1-6 will be cast in this production, which is designed with suitable parts for all age, skill and experience levels. No advance preparation is necessary.  Casting decisions will be made at the end of the audition day. There is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play so it is very important to prepare your child for this possibility.  If they need to “cut” any children, they will cut a minimum of 10 children.  For example, if 63 children are auditioning, they will need to cut 3 to make up the 60 actors.  Missoula Theatre would never cut only 3 children, they would cut 10 to be fair.  Therefore, PLEASE ONLY AUDITION IF YOU ARE COMMITTED TO DOING THE SHOW OTHERWISE SOME CHILDREN MAY BE UNNECESSARILY CUT. Attached is a handout which can help if any of your children do not get a part in the production.

The MCT tour directors will conduct rehearsals after school and early in the evening throughout the week ofJanuary 21st, 2019.  Those auditioning must have a clear schedule for the entire week and if selected, be able to attend all rehearsals for their role.
