Basketball Jamborees


Shuswap Middle School and Kings Christian School hosted the annual Grade 5 Basketball Jamborees just before Spring Break to wrap up the season. Congratulations to both our Grade 5 Boys and Girls Basketball teams on a fantastic year. Both teams worked extremely hard and showed a great deal of improvement throughout the year, as well as excellent sportsmanship in all of their games. Thank you to their coaches, Mrs. Menzies, Mrs. Mueller and Mrs. Tyssen for the countless hours they put into planning practices and organizing games. Thanks also to Mrs. Boyd for refereeing all of our home games for us!

GT Rally


Spring is coming! To help celebrate the last few days of snow we had a GT Rally on Harrison Hill on Friday March 8, 2019. Thank you to everyone who participated and to parents for helping transport all of the GT’s to school.

Talent Show


Thank you to all of our students who shared their talents with us both in the Class Talent Shows and our School Wide Talent Show last week. It takes a great deal of courage to perform in front of an audience. Students who participated should be very proud of the hard work they put into practicing and perfecting their performance. Thank you to Mr. Robert for organizing this fantastic learning opportunity.


SD83 Art Fair

Art Fair

This week, if you go to Piccadilly Mall in Salmon Arm, you will see our students’ artwork displayed along with many other school from our district. This is an annual elementary art extraveganza which is highlighted on Wednesday March 6, when we will send our Hillcrest contingent of students to workshops hosted by regional art experts. Over 300 students participate in these workshops and all of our elementary schools display art in the mall so it is well worth a visit.
