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. 

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:

Climbing Club

Based on student and staff availability, the Climbing Club will commence on Monday, November 2nd, 2020. The club will take place every Monday and Thursday (excluding holidays and long weekends) until June 10th, 2021 from 3:10 pm-4:30 pm. 

Students will be required to bring the following items: climbing shoes, harness, and chalk (chalk bag/liquid chalk). This will ensure that students are not sharing equipment, keeping the Climbing Club as safe as possible. 

Students wanting to participate are required to sign up by completing this Google Form: https://forms.gle/tkkLYiJWEmFBavRX7  

The Climbing Club will be limited to 15 students to ensure safety and proper social distancing. Students will be required to wear masks when belaying and climbing, and wash/sanitize hands prior to climbing. The Climbing Club will have focused training/climbing at the middle school campus, but there will be opportunities to climb at local gyms in the area, in the future. Students/parents will be expected to cover any additional costs related to these outings if the student chooses to attend. 

I look forward to seeing you out on our wall, 

Mr. O’Dell
