Blogs are posted to the website every Friday afternoon so parents and guardians can stay up to date with what is happening with school including important events, dates and announcements. If you have any questions, the number for the school is 250-359-7292.
In the next couple of weeks, the office will be sending home forms that need to be completed and/or updated. Please ensure you fill out all forms and that they are promptly returned to the office. I would also like to remind families that school fees are now due. Costs are $30 per child. If you are experiencing hardship, please contact me directly.
This coming Monday, we will have our first PAC meeting. It begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be held in our school library. Any questions you have should be directed to the PAC executive.
Bus passes will slowly trickle in as we have many students in the district. Please ensure your child has been registered so they may come to the office to receive a temporary pass until their card arrives. Thank you for your patience.
First PAC meeting tomorrow night at 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the library. Babysitting is available.
Mrs. Jenn Kooznetsoff
Principal, Brent Kennedy Elementary
