Blog Update, September 30th

Dear Parents/Guardians,

RESPECT sharing Assembly

Today, we witnessed a wonderful assembly led by our Grade 8 students on the character trait of Respect. I wish to congratulate Ms. McKenzie’s class for a job well done. We also collectively acknowledged two students from each class who, throughout the month of September, exemplified the character trait of respect. The character education trait for the month of October is RESPONSIBILITY.img_20160930_091834

Meet Courcelette’s staff (Movie made by Ms. Campbell)


This afternoon, our students participated in the Terry Fox run/walk. Spirits were high and the  enthusiasm was amazing. Collectively, we raised $750.00 for the Terry Fox Foundation. Bravo Courcelette!



Please be reminded that this coming Wednesday, October 5th, is Photo Day.



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.
