Hope For The Future – Survey & Seminar

A reminder to all school families about the Hope Lutheran Christian School survey that was sent out October 7, and the accompanying Hope for the Future session, Saturday, October 31, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.

The feedback from the survey will help us shape a time of prayer and dialog on the Saturday session. If you are available you may join us in person in the gym at our Port Coquitlam building, or online if you prefer. Space will be limited for both the in-person and online venues for safety and to ensure we can facilitate meaningful dialog. The cutoff to sign up for this event is Friday, October 23.

Even if you can not join us on October 31, please complete the survey.

For your convenience please see the survey at the following link:

Our next PTL Coffee Fellowship is Thursday, November 19 at 8:45 am.


Family Fun Event – We Need Your Help !!

We are arranging a walk-through pumpkin patch for the fun of all students at the Port Coquitlam Campus parking lot on Thursday and Friday, October 22 and 23.

To organize this, we need the assistance of parents and their vehicles to transport 200 pumpkins of varying sizes from the Laity Pumpkin Patch to our parking lot on the evening of Wednesday, October 21st.  If you are able to help, please email the PTL at [email protected] to let us know, specifying which time works better for you – 5:30 pm or 6 pm.  A member of the Hope PTL will meet you at Laity South Farm, 12725 Laity Street, Maple Ridge, to collect and transport our pumpkins. 

The pumpkins will be available to all families for purchase in our school parking lot on Thursday and Friday.  The purchase of pumpkins is not mandatory.  All proceeds will go towards school events and activities.  

Thanks for your support!
