 Signing Up for a Student-Led Conference Time

On Friday, February 8, 2019 we will have Student-Led Conferences.  This is a time where children are able to show their parents demonstrations of their learning and progress made during the term.  Families will be able to sign up for a conference time starting TODAY:  Friday, January 18, 2019 at 6:00 pm.  Conferences last 30 minutes and up to 3 families can sign up for the same time slot, as multiple conferences can go on during Student-Led Conferences.

Families will be able to sign up using the OnVolunteer system until Friday, January 25, 2019 at 6:00 pm.  Those families who do not sign up for a conference time by January 25 will be assigned a time.  If you have any questions please contact the school office at:  604-589-7545 or  Thank you.
