Dear Parents/Guardians,

Diwali is a festival of lights.  To celebrate, we will have henna (thank you to Ms Parm and parents) and a samosa sale ($2 each) at lunch on Monday.

We Scare Hunger

Did you know that 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy lifestyle? For the next 2 weeks, the leadership students at Squamish Elementary are collecting non-perishable food items for our community. As a school, if we collect over 600 non-perishable food items we will cover Mrs. Cho in silly string! Squamish Elementary, please help us We Scare Hunger! Bring your nonperishable food items to school until Oct 31st. Please place them on the table in the lobby!
