  • Popcorn Fridays – Grade 6 fundraiser - $1.00/bag
  • The PAC would also like families to know that they can donate their Nesters points to the school.  Nesters will not ask if customers want to donate but it can be voluntarily done and is easy to do. Contact the PAC if you require more information @ bankheadpac@gmail.com.
  • Friday, December 15th is a family dance hosted by the Grade 6 parents and students. $2.00 per child (parents free). Pizza, candy bags etc will be available for purchase. See WAAG for more info.
  • Thursday, December 21st we are excited to announce that we are presenting a holiday performance, "Surfin Santa" at 12:30 p.m. and at 6:00 p.m.  All classes will perform a song. Due to the size of our gym and fire regulations, we hope that many families will come to our afternoon performance or the dress rehearsal on December 20th @ 12:30 (no tickets needed).
    • We will be issuing only two tickets per family for the evening performance.  Tickets are mandatory at the door.
      • Thank you for your understanding! Contact the office to reserve your tickets by email Cheryl.nanci@sd23.bc.ca or call 250-870-5114.

At this time, we need about 5 volunteers to help out for half an hour one morning a week.  If you can help, contact the office! Thank you for caring!
  • Hope for the Nations and the Food for Thought program is launching a Freeze Hunger Campaign for the month of December to raise funds for each individual school's breakfast program.  Thinking about donating to a worthwhile cause. How about locally and for your child's school.
