Spell-a-thon and Spelling Bee

This Friday, April 16, is our whole-school Spelling Bee which is being held at the PoCo Campus. Based on the results from last week’s Spell-a-thon and teachers’ recommendations, students from K-8 have been invited to participate in the Spelling Bee this Friday. Parents of these students should be receiving an email from their child’s teacher today or tomorrow. Middle school students who are participating need to be dropped off at the PoCo Campus at 9:00 am this Friday. The shuttle bus will transport students back to the PM Campus once the Spelling Bee is done. 

A reminder to everyone to keep collecting pledges! All money raised will be used to support the BC Mission Boat Society Easter kit project. The pledge form and money are to be returned to the school by Thursday, April 22

Join us in prayer on Monday, April 19th.

On Monday, April 19th we are having a special 12-hour Day of Prayer from 7 am to 7 pm – a time where we lift up our needs and the needs of others before God.  We encourage you to join us at a time convenient to you between 7 am and 7 pm.  Please sign up for one or more 20-minute time slots:   Day of Prayer Time Slots.  Prayer points are listed here.  During that designated time, please pray in earnest for the topics we have shared with you, as well as other things God brings to your mind. If you have a prayer request, please send it to prayer@hopelcs.ca.

Parents and staff will also be meeting that day in front of the PoCo campus at 9 am for their weekly prayer time.  Consider joining us, we’d love to see you, appropriately distanced of course.

Thank you for your continued support of all we do and for serving the community within and beyond our school walls.  


Our musical production team is particularly in need of Star Wars costumes and accessories, among other prop items.  Take a look and let us know if you have any of these items! Props/Costume Sign-up


We are needing parents to assist during the recording sessions on May 10, 12, and 13.  Each day, 10 am-6 pm, is divided into three shifts.  Simple duties may include handing out props, sanitizing, being available to press a button for a spotlight, etc.  Nothing elaborate, we just need people.  Please sign up at this link for one or more shifts:  Musical Production Assistance

25 for the 25th!  HLCS BOOK DRIVE

Please support our libraries!

In celebration of our 25th Anniversary, a book drive is ongoing to directly benefit our school libraries at both campuses.  Our goal:  25 books for each grade!

Parents – here’s your chance to declutter and clean off your child’s bookshelf.  See what you can find to donate to our library.  Maybe you have some of our desired titles.  If you have recommended titles not on our wish list, we are interested in those too.

Please view our “Wish List” with tabs based on grade level: HLCS Book Drive

If you wish to make a monetary donation instead to fund the purchase of books, donations can be dropped off at either campus office (please mark your donation “Book Drive”).

Any questions can be directed to Lisa at lklym@hopelcs.ca    


Small groups are happening within our Hope community utilizing an app-based Bible reading plan that can be read at any time each day.  Each daily reading takes about 10 minutes and space is provided for reflection.  Group members are connected through a chat feature and are engaging in meaningful conversation, getting to know each other better, and being supported through prayer.

New men’s and women’s and Chinese groups started this week.  If you would like to be a part of a community group, please email Lisa at lklym@hopelcs.ca to get connected.  

The feedback on these groups has been very positive.  Don’t delay.  Get into the community! 

以圣经阅读为基础的小组活动将继续在Hope社区内开展,该活动使用一款可随时访问的手机阅读软件, 每天的阅读量大约在10分钟左右,软件同时提供交流反馈的空间。小组成员通过聊天功能建立联系,并进行有意义的对话,从而更好地了解彼此。


目前小组的反馈非常积极, 鼓励大家不要拖延,努力参与!


Submissions are open for the May newsletter.  We’d like to know how God has been faithful to you and your family during this COVID season.  How have you seen God at work providing for you?  What blessings can you identify in the midst of a worldwide pandemic?

Please send your stories of God’s faithfulness to Lisa Klym at lklym@hopelcs.ca.

The Climbing Club is limited to 15 students to ensure safety and proper social distancing. Students will be required to wear masks when belaying and climbing, and wash/sanitize hands prior to climbing. The Climbing Club will have focused training/climbing at the middle school campus, but there will be opportunities to climb at local gyms in the area, in the future. Students/parents will be expected to cover any additional costs related to these outings if the student chooses to attend. 

I look forward to seeing you out on our wall. – Mr. O’Dell
