Deputy Mayor

Congratulations to Chloe Young for being chosen to be the Deputy Mayor of Squamish today.


Kate O’Connor, the public health nurse for our school, is starting to plan for the BOKS before-school activity program for next year. We would appreciate any feedback on the program in the on-line survey from the staff and parents: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GFQP5HP

Bike to Work Week

Bike to School Week kicks off Monday, running from May 28th – June 3rd! Riding to school builds physical activity into kids’ daily routine, supports in-class concentration, and provides a foundation for healthy lifestyles and lifelong love of cycling. Plus, it’s a lot of fun! Make sure your child is familiar with their best route to school, try exploring the route before-hand, and talk to your neighbours and friends about organizing a Bike Train to encourage more participation in a safe and fun way. We will be keeping track of all kids biking to school for the week.
