Student Drop Off at the Middle School Campus
A reminder to parents that when dropping off in the morning you may park on one of the side streets, park in the courtyard or drop off in front of the school in the middle of the courtyard. Do not stop in the middle of either driveway to drop off your child(ren) as this backs up the traffic entering the courtyard and will be an annoyance for other tenants in the complex.
Recess/Lunch Supervision Job Opportunity at Elementary Campus for 2022/23 School Year
The Elementary School has some openings on their recess and lunch supervision team for the upcoming school year. If this is something that may interest you please email your resume, including any certifications you may have (CRC, first aid) to the Head Supervisor, Michele Malmberg ([email protected]).
Recently, the opportunity was given for parents to contribute to the school to fund staff “wish-list” items – items that do not fall under the school budget but would enhance the learning in the classroom and/or directly benefit students. Please click to view a list of all the requested items, Parents have until June 15th to indicate their intent to support the school in procuring these items. If you wish to have a tax receipt issued, please make your cheque payable to Hope Lutheran School. After June 15th the PTL will consider funding any items not covered by parent donations.
The PTL needs new leadership to join the Executive in the coming school year. The President role becomes vacant as of June 2023 and the Vice-President role remains vacant. These jobs can be shared among parents. Please review the Job Description for an outline of expectations. This is an excellent opportunity for parents of younger grades to be involved in the school long-term. Please email the PTL if you are interested in taking on this very important role.
Opportunities are available for the next school year. Please browse the list of ongoing opportunities and let us know where you’d like to serve next year. Some opportunities are guaranteed hours…
FOR ALL PARENTS: The Term 2 Participation recording sheets will close on June 15th. Please ensure you have recorded all your participation hours on your Term 2 sheets prior to June 15th. After this date, the sheets will be locked and hours calculated. If you have completed a minimum of 15 hours, there is no cost to you. Completion of partial hours will receive a reimbursement cheque.
BC Dumpling Festival 2022
Saturday, August 13th, Town Centre Park – a multicultural, family-friendly event that will showcase dumplings from around the world!
The day will be packed with live entertainment, activities for all ages, and local food and beverage vendors and will feature a dumpling competition. For more information visit bcdumplingfest.ca
We have been invited to participate with a 10×10 tent showcasing our school and we’d like parents to be our spokespeople. If you are here and would like to participate, please email Mr. Lok ([email protected]). Planning starts now. Time spent will count towards the PPP.
Used Uniform Sale
A used uniform sale is happening on June 13 & 14 at 2:30 pm in our Elementary campus parking lot. This is a great opportunity to pass on those outgrown uniform pieces. Parents, take the opportunity to go through your uniform pieces and identify what you can sell to other families.
Individuals are responsible for the sale and cleanup of their own items. Please email the PTL if you would like to have a table.
Lost & Found Items
ATTENTION PARENTS: Items from the Elementary Lost & Found will be put out on a table in the foyer this week. Please browse through in case your child has an item here. All items not claimed by Friday afternoon will be donated.
Middle School Mixer
Our Middle School Mixer that took place last Friday was a huge success. Thank you to all the parents who donated food, draw prizes and/or assisted at the event.
For those parents who enjoy assisting with event planning, join our team! We are looking for core groups of parents to take on leadership for event planning next year. Email the PTL if you are able to help.
