School calendar 2020-2021 onwards

As you may know, the district completed a consultation process in the fall regarding the preparation of school calendars. Please find [below] the draft School Calendars for each of the next three school years. These calendars were built in consultation with DPAC, school PAC’s, school and district staff, and with the feedback received from the school calendar survey that was available to all parents and staff in December.

One item to note is for the 2020-2021 calendar, only one week of the two week spring break is aligned with Vancouver Metro area school districts. The reason for this is that consultation feedback indicated that it was preferable to include the Easter Holiday in the Spring Break.

Please review the local school calendars and feedback can be provided to your school principal (RKubik@sd48.bc.ca). These draft calendars will be presented to the Board of Education for approval at their regular March public meeting and the final approved calendars will be sent out at that time.

Stewardship Pemberton Seeds Project

Community gardens are an important part of ensuring childhood health &
connection to nature. For the past six years, Stewardship Pemberton &
Signal Hill Elementary School have joined forces to give back to those in need. Students at Signal Hill Elementary school start the seeds in their classroom. The classes then
plant out the vegetable seedlings during a field trip to the “Grow it Forward Garden”.

Funds raised will help support our “Grow it Forward” Community
Garden by purchasing soil, seed trays, gardening equipment and also help
towards the cost of maintaining the garden throughout the growing
season. Produce grown is then distributed to those in need through
our local Food Bank and other local community programs.

West Coast Seeds is a BC company offering untreated and non-GMO seeds suitable for organic growing.

Thanks for the hockey court!

This letter appears in the Pique newspaper this week:

They shoot and they score

Signal Hill Elementary Parent Advisory Council (PAC), and students in Pemberton, would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all those individuals, local families, local businesses and sponsors who supported the rebuilding of the school hockey court.

A project that started with the enthusiasm of a group of Grade 6 students hosting bake sales and hot chocolate stands quickly became an ambitious redevelopment plan. A huge wave of enthusiasm spread throughout the school and extended into the community.

The hockey court was removed and reinstalled with brand-new fencing in the summer, and will be finalized before the winter. We would like to thank all those who helped make this become a reality, including Education Assistant Jodie Sankey and all the Grade 6 students now in Grade 7 who brought their energy and dedication to the front of this cause. This project would not have been possible without the support of the following organizations, businesses and community members: Squamish-Lillooet Regional District and the Village of Pemberton; the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation; The Community Foundation of Whistler; a local Pemberton family who kick started our fundraising with a very generous donation; Pemberton Royal Canadian Legion; Grimms Deli; the Rempel Family; Brink Forestry Products; Pemberton Rotary Club; Murphy Construction; and the Real Estate Association of Whistler.

Thanks also to the School Administration, SD48, Signal Hill PAC and all the community members who volunteered their time and energy to the fundraising initiatives, and put funds into the cause. Thank you!

Claire Fuller on behalf of the Signal Hill PAC // Pemberton
