Mrs. Ewer’s class will be going on kayaking field trip on June 28th.  Because this is a moderate risk field trip, parents need to attend a parent information meeting on either June 19th at 2:45 PM or June 20th at 6:00 PM.  Thanks in advance for attending one of the two meetings!

Divisions 1, 2 and 3 are going on a moderate risk field trip at the end of June.  For this reason, parents need to attend a meeting in order for their child(ren) to participate.

The Parent Information Meetings will be taking place on June 7th at 2:45 PM or June 8th at 6:00 PM.  Parents must attend one of the two meetings.


Thanks to everyone who contributed to the great success of our Fun Fair last Friday. From the individual donations for the silent auction, the class baskets and the games to  the time given by our volunteers to make it all happen!

We also had 2 donation cheque presentations for our playground fund! We would like to acknowledge Peninsula CoOp and the Royal Bank for their generosity.

A special thank you goes out to our PAC! Without them, none of this would happen!

Our Colwood Community is Fantastic.
