Caring, Kind, Friendly and Safe…

Dear Parents/Guardians,

ProD Day on Feb 7th

The school is closed tomorrow for the students.  Most of our staff will be away learning about Social Emotional Intelligence with speaker Jodi Derkson (Imperative Education) or Numeracy with David Gregr (HSSS) and Asia Mathews (Quest U)

OurSchool Survey for Gr. 5 and 6 students

Grade 5 and 6 students will be taking the OurSchool Survey to help us with school improvement.  The survey is anonymous and voluntary.

Clones Day

Monday is Clones Day.  Dress up exactly like your friends or staff.  You can have multiple clones!

COEUR-O-GRAMMES for sale! (heart cards)

The leadership students are selling Coeur-o-grammes (heart cards) in the lobby at lunchtime on Monday to Thursday. Each card will be 1$. Address the card to anyone in the school so please make sure to put that students’ teachers name on the card so we know where to deliver them. The cards will be delivered on Valentine’s Day.

Wear Red

Wear Red on Valentine’s Day, Friday!

Valentine Day Games

Valentine’s Day games in the gym on Friday from 1-3pm. Please bring nonperishable food items to play a game.  We are donating the food to the Squamish food bank.

Three on Three Basketball

We play 3 on 3 tournaments with VCE this week.  Next week is against SWE.  Thank you to Mr. Parker, Mr. Dion and Mr. Blumel for coaching.  Practices are on Mon and Wed at lunch.


During the month of February, the Library is collecting used children’s books to sell in a used book sale!  If you have any children’s books you are ready to part with the Library would be happy to accept your donations.

The Library Book Review Challenge continues!  We have over a hundred entries so far! Complete a Book Review sheet from the Library for every book you read and submit it back to the Library to be entered. Tell us what you think of each book and give it a rating out of 5 stars! Each completed Book Review is an entry into a book draw. All of the entries are being displayed in and around the Library so take a look if you’re searching for a good book!  The Challenge ends February 28th.

Please follow the SQE Library on Instagram sqe_library or Twitter @SQE_library to see photos and keep up with all the events in the Library.


Festival du Livre is coming to SQE from February 19th-21st!  This scholastic book sale is primarily French books and a great opportunity for our french immersion parents to stock up for their home libraries. The sale will be open from 8:30-8:55am and 3:00-3:30pm daily.  Check out a sneak peak of available books in the front foyer.

Parents who are able to volunteer to sell books during the Festival du Livre please email Ms. Antonios at rantonios@sd48.bc.ca with a time you are available!

Library Days and Hours

The Library is open daily 8:30-8:50 – Parents welcome!

School wide book exchange is from 9-9:20 daily with a Library pass

The Library is open to students at lunch hour with a Library pass

Come enjoy a good book!


Earth Kids

There is an Earth Kids meeting in Mme Regnier’s classroom at lunch, Wednesday, February 12th.  We will be labeling boxes to help our school recycle Booster Juice cups for next week’s hot lunch.

Parking Lot

We are finding the parking lot and the round-about very congested at drop off and pick up times.  Please remember to park in designated spots and not park in the round-about.  Please do not stop in the middle of a lane and please be courteous to other parents.  We thank you for your consideration and patience.

PAC Corner
