What’s Happening at ESQE week of Feb 25th to Mar 1st

Posted on

Caring, Kind, Friendly and Safe…

Dear Families,


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.
