While walking home from school on the afternoon of Thursday Nov 8, 2018, 2 students from North Canoe Elementary school were approached by an individual in a black truck handing out stickers.
RCMP have been notified of the incident and are following up. Please take the time to review with your children safety procedures when walking and the importance of not approaching strangers.
If you have any questions please contact me at the office.

Dear Hillcrest Elementary School parents:
The BC Ministry of Education and our School District are in the midst of developing curriculum and reporting documents that better meet the needs of families. Our goal is to provide parents with a better way of understanding where their children are at in their learning journey.
Part of this change involves increased opportunities for parents to meet formally with teachers to discuss their child’s progress. To accommodate this change, the district has asked each school to schedule an early dismissal day in November to provide time for scheduled Parent/Student/Teacher conferences. Our school will have early dismissal on November 20, 2018. Students will be dismissed at 12:05pm on this day.
These conferences will provide an opportunity for students, parents and teachers to discuss the students’ areas of strength and needs. Learning goals will also be set for the students’ continued academic and behavioral growth. Research indicates that this method of reporting was found to be more meaningful and informative for teachers, parents, and students. We also know that community-building and establishing strong relationships between home and school are what promotes learning in the most fundamental way.
Please note, an information letter explaining how to sign up for a Parent/Student/Teacher conference time slot online will be sent home on Friday November 2, 2018. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or the office. We look forward to meeting with all of you to discuss your child’s progress and set goals for the remainder of the school year.
