Dear Families,

International Women’s Day

Parking Lot Safety

We are noticing a lot of congestion in the parking lot and the roundabout.  Please follow these guidelines for everyone’s safety and convenience:

  • Do NOT park in the roundabout – if your child is not ready to get into your car, please go park
  • Use parking spots that are designated – no parking on grass, side of the construction site, bus lane etc.
  • Do NOT park in the bus lane – we need the lane left open for the bus

Thank you for your cooperation.  We want all of you to be safe.

Dear Families,

Leadership

In December, many classes at our school visited Howe Sound to watch a Plastic Ocean and visit the Eco-Club’s plastic art installation.  Yesterday, some members of the Squamish Elementary leadership club joined the Howe Sound Eco Club at the District of Squamish Office to present their petition to ban single-use plastics. We are happy to announce that the Mayor and Council agreed and have made a motion to ban single-use plastics in Squamish, starting with a goal of banning plastic straws and bags by the end of 2019! A big thank you to the intermediate students who helped spread awareness about the plastic problem and all the students who signed the petition. This is a huge accomplishment and is proof that kids can make a difference!  Thank you to Mme Lapp and Mme Garlock.
