Parent Internet Resource

Part of our curriculum at Hope covers internet safety and a resource we use to help teach these concepts is Kids in the Know.  This group has put out an email ahead of the summer break geared toward parents and provides helpful tips and information for their children’s internet usage (which typically goes up dramatically over the holidays).  Please see THIS LINK for more information.


Drive-In Musical Copies

We are so pleased with how everything turned out for our Drive In musical event this past weekend.  We are happy to provide, for those families that are interested, a copy of our 25th Anniversary Drive In Musical play. Please provide a USB stick (with a capacity of 16 GB) in an envelope marked with your child’s name, Grade, and your contact information to the Port Coquitlam campus office by the end of school (noon) tomorrow, June 22.  You will be notified when it is ready to pick up (we expect before June 25th).  This is free, but donations are welcome.

As we come to the end of another school year, we again would like to get your feedback on your child and your family’s school experience in our end of year parents survey.  We would also love to hear some of your thoughts and ideas as we move forward after this challenging school year.  We look forward to getting each and everyone’s response.

Yearbook Update

Yearbooks are expected to be here in early July. Once they have arrived an email will be sent out advising families of the best time to visit either campus to collect yearbooks. For those families that may be travelling for the summer break, your yearbook will be kept at the Port Coquitlam campus and can be collected when your child returns in September. 

Thank you for supporting our Yearbook Club by purchasing a yearbook and we look forward to your continued support next year!

Parent Teacher League (PTL) News

A huge THANK YOU to Lisa Klym, our PTL President and Community Relations Officer. You have given so much of your time, efforts, wisdom, prayers, and creativity. Our PTL meetings are always well run, inclusive, and informative. The monthly newsletters have kept our spirits high. You work countless hours behind-the-scenes (or in your “office” in the foyer of the school) and we are grateful for your commitment and love for our school community. May God bless you and your family this Summer and we look forward to a more “normal” year next year!!!

 

PTL Minutes

Please see the minutes from the last PTL meeting of the 2020-2021 school year: PTL Meeting, June 10, 2021

 

PTL Opportunity for Service

In preparation for our upcoming 2021/22 school year, the following vacancies are in need of willing parents:

Emergency Preparedness working alongside Lilian Wong, preparing emergency response items for each class.  A list of procedures is available.

Fundraising Coordinator:  Ideas for fundraising are forwarded to the PTL regularly.  A Coordinator is needed to help with exploring and implementing fundraising initiatives. 

Class Liaisons:  Grade 3 and Grade 7 classes still require Liaisons.  If your child is entering either of these grades and you would like to assist in this way, please let us know. 

Lice Check Coordinator:  Lice check is a necessary health function for our elementary campus and is done three times a year to keep our environment healthy.  Checks are conducted at the start of the school year, after Christmas break and after Spring break.  A binder of procedures has been developed and training can be arranged. 

Kilometre Club Coordinator:  we are hoping to offer KM Club in the fall, however, the Club is in need of a Coordinator.  A document of Best Practices has been created – a step-by-step guide on how to run the Club.  If a Coordinator is not appointed, the Club cannot function.

If you are able to assist with any of these important positions, please email the PTL at [email protected] 


Community Relations

Newsletter Submissions

Submissions are open for the September newsletter.  Is your child competing in an event over the summer or taking part in musical/theatrical exams such as Royal Conservatory?  If so, we’d like to recognise them and their outstanding achievements.   

News stories are not limited to the above – if you have something you’d like to share with the Hope Community, we want to hear from you!  Perhaps it’s a family trip you have planned exploring a unique area of our Province, or you’re engaging in a service project – please submit details and any relevant photos by Friday, September 3 to Lisa at [email protected]
