    Hello Parents and Families of Parkcrest Elementary,

    What wonderful weather we had for our two big Field Trips last week to the Salmon Run.

    PLEASE NOTE: PARENT TEACHER INTERVIEWS WILL BE TAKING PLACE ON THURSDAY NOVEMBER 8, 2018.  We are trying something different this year in terms of Parent Sign Up.  There will be a series of links and a PDF posted tomorrow afternoon/evening (MONDAY OCTOBER 22, 2018) that will direct you to sign up for Parent Teacher Interviews.  In order for you to sign up, you will need to access your child(ren)s classroom teacher link and choose a time.  Please remember, once you choose your time, to record it somewhere as there will be no secondary follow up to confirm times.  Note as well that each interview is 15 minutes in length.  If there are no times that meet your scheduling needs, please contact your child(ren)s teacher directly to make alternate arrangements.  

    I will post these links and the PDF to the website and follow up with an email as well.


    *PAC Spirit Wear forms and Grade 6 Hoodie forms went home last week!  Buy a T-shirt or a Hoodie!  Thanks to our PAC for organizing. Kindergarten families, the PAC and the school are buying your K a shirt to wear!

    *We would like to wish all the best to Mrs. Dhaliwal whose last day was Thursday, Oct. 18.  She will be leaving our K class to have a baby!  Welcome to our school to Mrs. Bale who will be joining Mrs. Hyslop as her teaching partner in Division 17.

    *Thank you to the families who have already donated gently used, clean items for our PAC sharing initiative of winter clothing to families who need it.  We will continue to accept things as we move into the colder weather. 

    Monday:

    *Recognition Assembly 8:45 - 9:30 (If your child(ren) were to be recognized, their classroom teacher will have been in touch with you.  We hope you can join us
