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.



Early French Immersion Parent Information

A parent information session for kindergarten and grade 1 French Immersion will be held at the Eagle Eye Community Theatre Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 7:00 pm.


Students are reminded that there should be no hands on/touch/tackle sports at any time.  We want to make sure that everyone is safe.  Please report to an adult if you see unsafe behavior.
