In Support of the Humboldt tragedy that happened last Friday, we are asking all staff and students to participate in Jersey day this Thursday. It does not have to be a hockey jersey-as any sports jersey will do.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
Your children have been working hard, preparing their beautiful voices for our Spring Concert next Wednesday, March 14th.
First performance will be at 1:15pm and the 2nd performance will be at 7pm. For the evening performance, we request your children arrive at 6:30pm.
If possible, students are to wear a Canada shirt or just a PLAIN white or red shirt. ( no one is required to go out an buy any new clothing for this event).
Seating is limited so first come, first seated.
We look forward to seeing you then!
Colwood Elementary has been selected to run the Chuck-a-Puck contest at the Royals home game on March 9th, 2018. This can bring in a potential revenue of 2-3 thousand dollars for our students.
To make this happen, we are in need of 10-15 parent volunteers. Volunteers must be at the arena for 5:30pm and will receive free admission to the game. Please contact Gillian Webb at email@example.com to add your name to the volunteer list and she will send you details.
This is a great fundraising opportunity for our school. Come show your support for Colwood Elementary!
On Friday, January 12th, Colwood School, as part of our Cultural Plan, is participating in an Elder Moon celebration. This celebration is a way for our students to understand and enjoy the spiritual and cultural activities of local First Nations People, work together in multi-age groups and participate in hands-on learning activities.
The Elder Moon is the oldest of the moon family and represents a time of teaching. During the Elder Moon, the Saanich people would gather wood pitch for torches and fires, collect shellfish, hunt for ducks and geese, make nets and ropes and finish their roughed out canoes in the longhouse. Celebrations are highlighted during the Elder Moon phase. Winter ceremonies are planned and elders tell legends to teach the children the right way to live.
Below is a list of activities that our students will be participating in on Friday. Please ensure that your child is dressed for the weather as one of our activities will take place outside.

Station 2: Raven Tale video
Station 3: Bannock Tasting and story
Station 4: Story Walk and Talking Stick
