Blog Update September 23rd, 2016

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It was fantastic to see everyone at Curriculum night. I wish to thank the Courcelette staff and all of you for creating such a dynamic, positive and caring school environment. We thank our Parent Council and parent volunteers for providing pizza and water at last evening’s event.


Chine Drive Cross-country meet 

Over 70 Courcelette students made us proud at the Chine Drive meet. A number of students distinguished themselves and some earned top honours. All ran well and gave it their best effort. Well done runners! A special thanks to our coaches.


For the latest XC news, please follow Ms. Robertson’s blog.



For over 30 years we have kicked off the school year with this family & friend orientated day. Fall Fest will be on Saturday, October 22nd, from 11am to 3pm, at our school. This year again we look forward to our children, friends, and neighbours of all ages enjoying the many fun events of the day including Bouncy Castles, Obstacles Course, Carnival Games, Haunted House, Treasure Baskets, Face Painting, Book Sale, Cotton Candy, Delicious Food & Drinks, and much more!

In the coming weeks, please look out for notices on the school blog, emails from parent council, and handouts in your children’s agendas detailing the various ways you can participate.

For more information and/or to volunteer your time at any level of commitment for this annual school tradition, please contact Shan Collins, Fall Fest Chair, at:

Additionally, we are grateful to Shan Collins who will be running this event for the third year, and we are actively seeking a parent volunteer to partner with Shan Collins to Co-chair this event this year and lead it next year.
