Dear Parents and Guardians,

Community Christmas Care

We are collecting no-perishable food items, treats, unwrapped new toys, gift cards for making up hampers for the Community Christmas Care.  Thank for your generosity.

Ecole Squamish Elementary Writing Day

Friday, November 29th

Dig out your Christmas cards and address books because all of the students in Grades K-6 are planning a special “Writing Day” on Friday, November 29th!  You are invited to join your child in writing to friends and relatives for the holiday season.  We’ll supply writing paper and envelopes.  Stamps and Christmas cards will be on sale.  We encourage you to bring along any family members or friends so that every student has someone to write with them.  Wear your PJs to help get into the cozy winter holiday spirit!

  • We will start at 9:10 a.m. on November 29th.  Students and their families will have the option of writing in the gym or their classrooms.
  • Every child needs to have their own address information for the day.  (K and Gr. 1 students should bring pre-addressed envelopes if a parent cannot attend.)
  • For those of you who do not celebrate Christmas we encourage you to have your children write family letters.
  • We will be accepting letters to Santa.  There is no cost to send Santa a letter.  Santa’s address is:  Student Name, Teacher name, Santa Claus, North Pole, H0H 0H0
  • Cost of Stamps is Canada $1, USA $1.20 and International $2.50.  Christmas Cards can be purchased at $.25 for small and $.50 for large.

French Book Sale

Come to visit the French Book sale on Fri, Nov 29th (Writing Day) from 8:30 to 10:30 am.  There will be a wide variety of easy readers, picture books, novels, graphic novels and activity books all in French.  Cash only please.

The 5 book Challenge!


This November the Library is having a reading contest, the 5 book Challenge! Can you read a science book about an animal, a book written before 1990, a book that’s been made into a movie or TV show, a book by a Canadian Author, and a book that is part of the Remembrance Day display?

If you want to be part of the challenge, pick up an entry sheet the next time you are in the library, record the books you’ve read and return your sheet to the Library before Dec 6th to be entered into the contest!  There will be prizes for several winners!

Elf Workshop – Monday Dec 9

PAC will be hosting our ever popular Elf Workshop again this year. Please take a few minutes to gather items that you are no longer using and drop them at the school office. Your support is greatly appreciated and required to make this event a success. Exact details of the event will be communicated in the coming weeks.

Have a few spare hours? We are looking for volunteers for the event. It really is a lot of fun. Come help wrap and get into the holiday spirit. https://www.volunteersignup.org/CM4AH?fbclid=IwAR3xgcK0w0uPbIeB0yTvtnHcAMXCmyfb7Am7eG9EhWDxVrn3zT-B0dIqxJ4
