Christmas Flea Market

Our Annual Flea Market will take place this year on Dec. 21st. We are now accepting donations at the school. The students will be able to buy items as Christmas presents for their family for $1.00 per item. Parents are asked to donate some used articles from home that are clean and in good condition. The items must be small in size as the children will be taking them home in their back packs. Suggested items are: tools, books, golf balls, movies, costume jewelry, knick knacks, Christmas decorations, etc. Please no clothing, except for accessories like ties or scarves. Wrapping paper can also be donated for this event. All money raised will go towards the Home & School Fund & also to needy families.

Arrival to School

Just a reminder that our drop off times have moved back to pre-covid times and early drop off begins in the morning at 8:10 and runs until 8:30. After 8:30, if you are dropping off children, we ask that you follow busses through the parking lot and not backing up or making turns to go out the entrance. We appreciate your help with this.

Bus Passes:

Please send a note to school with your student if they require a bus pass.

Just a friendly reminder that the PSB is once again limiting bus passes for primary child care situations or unanticipated circumstances.


We want to send out a huge Congratulations to Donna LeClair & Ruby Lubigan for winning the second fundraiser draw. Also, a thank you to everyone who supported our fundraiser. Please stay tuned in 2024 for our next fundraiser.
