IMPORTANT DATES:

ACADEMY MESSAGE

Thank you to all how have applied for our Soccer and Dance Academy. We are in the process of going through the applications and hope to finalize academy enrolment by Spring Break. It may take a little longer, but we will keep you posted. Very important to have the $85.00 non-refundable deposit paid for before we accept your child into the academy. This may differ from other academies, but we may be creating a waitlist, so the deposit will make a difference. At this point, our Soccer Academy is full, but still have a few spaces left in our Dance Academy. If you have any questions about our academies, please contact Brian Hobson at bhobson@sd62.bc.ca for Soccer or Danica Anderson at danderson@sd62.bc.ca for Dance.

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS Is Dunsmuir ready?

Last year Dunsmuir underwent a significant seismic upgrade. Will we be prepared and able to care for students if a big earthquake hits? Our very own Robert Bryan (gr 8 teacher) brings vast experience in this field from his pre-teaching career and is eager to share his knowledge and help us be ready at school and in our homes. Come to our next PAC meeting on Tuesday, February 28th at 6:30pm to learn about Emergency Preparedness from the school’s perspective.
