Panago Pizza for Hope’s Gardening Club

Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, May 14, we have unlimited-topping medium pizza certificates, from Panago, available for only $12. You’ll receive a fresh medium pizza with as many toppings as you’d like and 100% of the proceeds will go towards a much-needed irrigation system and other greenhouse items at Hope’s Middle School Gardening Club.

Certificates are available for purchase at the Port Coquitlam Elementary or Pitt Meadows Middle School offices. Limited quantities are available so come support your school as this club encourages students to be physically and mentally active, while taking care of their environment.

Thank you to Panago Pizza on Hawkins Street in Port Coquitlam for donating these certificates to support our school initiative.


Track and Field

Track and Field season is underway. There are practices for all grade 4 & 5 students on Mondays from 9:00 – 10:00 am; Wednesdays from 10:45 am – 12:00 pm; and Fridays from 1:45 – 2:45 pm. Students should dress for the weather (extra socks if it’s wet; hats if it’s sunny). Parent volunteers are needed – no experience is required.  Some of the volunteer responsibilities could include recording times or distances and helping monitor student behaviour. Please contact Mrs. Olding with any questions or concerns ([email protected])   

All grade 4 & 5 students will participate in an in-school track meet at Percy Perry Stadium on May 16. Selected students will attend an inter-school Christian Elementary School Sports (CESS) track meet at Swangard Stadium (in Burnaby) on May 28.

NEW INFO:

Permission slips for both track meets are now overdue – if your child does not have their permission slip in, they will not be allowed to attend the meet this Thursday, and will not be placed in any events for May 28.  

We are still in need of parent volunteers and a few parent drivers. If you can help at either meet, please email Mrs. Olding with your availability. For the event at Percy Perry Stadium on May 16, we will need at least 8 parents to operate stopwatches for the running events, plus some parents to provide support for field events (e.g. raking the sand at long jump).  At Swangard, Mrs. Olding will need help at the ball throw station (measuring and recording distances of throws), we will need help supervising in the stands, and we need to supervise the bathroom area for 1 hour during the event. We truly appreciate your support in making these events a success for our students.


Used Book Sale

The Grade 2 classes will be hosting a used book sale in our school gym after school on Friday, May 17.  We will be raising money to support our chapel offerings in purchasing desks and chairs for needy students in Nicaragua.  We invite you to come out and support our grade 2 students by stopping by and purchasing some books. The students will be busy until that date, sorting, pricing, and practicing how to collect and give change.


Beauty And The Beast Cast

There is one Beauty & the Beast t-shirt available for $10 each if any of the musical cast is interested.

Size available:  youth (L)

Please email Tina Goetz if you are interested, [email protected].
