2024-25 District Calendar

The 2024-25 District Calendar has been approved by the board and posted to the district website. A more detailed school calendar with our own additional dates and events will come out later this spring.

Concert Tickets

Because the majority of families have reserved one show, we will be releasing another round of tickets for families who would like to go to more than one show. These will be released on Tuesday April 30th.

Please, if you do not plan on attending a show do not reserve seats, please leave these for families that want to attend.

I.D.E.A. Summit – May 7 at Langley Events Centre

Come see entrepreneurship and creativity in action at the I.D.E.A. Summit! 

I.D.E.A. stands for Innovation, Design, Entrepreneurship and Altruism.

Students from across the District will be participating and competing throughout the day in the Market Showcases, Thinkology and Design Challenges, Pitch Challenges, and the I.D.E.A Summit Finale. The finishers will be awarded prizes which have been generously donated by the local business community.

Join us at the Langley Events Centre (Building B-Fieldhouse) located at 7888 200th Street in Langley on May 7, 2024 from 9:15 am – 3:00pm. For more information and to view the schedule, click here.

Track & Field

Track is coming for grades 4 & 5. Coaches Moore, Wells and Nahal will be running practices after school on Mondays, and the meet is on June 6. We’re looking forward to having lots of Bulldogs come out to participate.

Quote(s) of the week

Something to read (or watch)…

  • It is my hope that you don’t need any of this information (though I know that some of you already have). This is the Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport. It’s a very detailed document about a very important topic. This Concussion Recognition Tool is a nice, concise guide intended for coaches, parents, and even teammates to know what to look for if a concussion in an athlete (or playground participant) is suspected.
  • I thought some of you parents might be able to identify with this and find it amusing. It’s from the very clever Nathan W Pyle.
