Fun Food – Fun food day is Friday, November 23 at The Well.  Parents from all grades are welcome to participate in bringing baked goods and treats.  Sign up at the link below and earn volunteer hours:


Two parent volunteers are needed to assist The Well students to clean up after they serve hot lunch on various Fridays (dates listed on the sign up).  Please arrive at noon in the kitchen by the gym. Sign in at the office upon arrival. This can be combined with lunch time supervision.


Christmas Hampers Drive

The Christmas season is a time that emphasizes joy and celebration for most, but for those struggling, the need is felt more profoundly.  We take this opportunity as a school to rally around these families, and contribute to hampers to help make Christmas a joyful time for all.

Gifts of cash & gift cards can be taken to the school office for safekeeping. (If you are ordering a gift card from the Hope Lutheran Christian School’s Grade 6-8 LEST Fundraiser to use for your Christmas Hamper donation, these gift cards will arrive just in time before the hampers are delivered.)

~ Donations will be collected for 2 weeks – Monday, November 19 until Monday, December 3, 2018.

For health and safety reasons please ensure all donated items are new and unwrapped. (If food item, please ensure it is not past expiry date)

~ Contributions are voluntary; volunteer hours are not given for these donations.

~ Starting on Monday November 19, Christmas wrapped collection bins will be placed in each classroom for Kindergarten through Grade 5, and if you are at the Pitt Meadows Campus, please place your items in the wrapped boxes in the office.

Grade 2-8 Parent and Child Ski/Snowboard Day – December 21, 2018

We are excited to once again offer a fabulous opportunity for our students and families to participate as a group in a winter sport. This year, there will be a Grade 2-8 Parent and Child Ski/Snowboard Day at Mt Seymour on Friday, December 21, 2018.  Although this is a school sponsored event, it takes place outside of school hours; therefore, all responsibility for supervision, first aid, and transportation is up to the student’s parents/guardians. There is an opportunity to book a spot on the school bus for $15 per person, if there is enough interest. All students who attend the ski day must participate in lessons.  Parents and older siblings may choose to ski/board or to watch lessons. There are two forms required. The HLCS school form (one per family) can be accessed through the link below or picked up from the school office, and the Mt Seymour form (one per student and one for any adults/siblings who are renting) must be picked up from the school office. Both forms and your cheque must be returned to the school office by Tuesday, November 27th.

LEST Fund – Gift Cards

The grade 6 to 8 students will be going to the Lutheran Elementary Schools Tournament (LEST) in Portland, Oregon this coming February.  To help fund this great opportunity, we have partnered with Fundscrip, a company that sells gift cards. Information regarding this fundraiser has been sent home with each student on November 13.

Fundscrip will offer a percentage of every gift card ordered to go towards the LEST trip.  You will get the full value of the gift card and the school will also receive a 3 to 10 % donation.  Please consider purchasing gift cards for your everyday purchases (i.e. groceries, gas, movies, Starbucks), Christmas gifts, teacher gifts and corporate events.  Instead of paying by credit card at the retailers offered on the form, please consider buying a gift card and paying with that.          

Thank you for your support!             

Please email any question you may have to Beth Marshall at bpugsy@hotmail.com
