Updates & Events

Hello Everyone,

Happy May! Can you believe it? Our staff and students have been taking advantage of the warmer weather and doing more activities outdoors.

Illness: A big thank you to students and parents forstaying home/keeping kids home, when someone is not feeling well! We are thankful to have had very few illness symptoms at school and not spreading viruses among our students and staff. Please continue to send clean masks with Gr 4 & up to school and encourage continued hand washing and not sharing items with their classmates. The end of the year will be here soon and hopefully September looks a little different than now.

5:1 Donations: Another thank you goes to everyone who has supported our 5:1 giving offer. So far we have raised $10,850 of our $25,000 goal (turning into $150,000 for our school). If you have not yet had a chance to support this, you can e-transfer the school some funds (cash or cheques also work) and mark it as donation. Every bit counts!

Shuttle Bus: A reminder that there is not to be food or drinks (other than water) while on our bus between town and PCS. It is both a safety and cleanliness concern. Our bus is a great service for our students/families and we want to do everything we can to ensure it stays safe and viable for the future.

Tribute: As a school we would like to pay tribute to Margaret (Peggy) Geuder for the contribution she made to the lives of many young people through her lifelong teaching service. She taught with School District 59 and then Peace Christian School, followed by serving as secretary and librarian at PCS. She was also a volunteer in several community groups in Chetwynd, making life better for others around her, as she lived out her faith in Christ Jesus. Peggy passed away on May 1, 2021 and is mourned by many family and friends in our community.
