Connect Charter Family Weekly Update

August 22-26, 2022

Welcome Back! We look forward to an inspiring 2022-2023 school year at Connect Charter School. As the start-up is just around the corner, providing our families with a few “save the date” events might help to organize busy calendars.

 

This Week's Highlights

Grade 7s enjoy a celebratory lunch at North Glenmore Park. 

Connect Charter would like to turn your attention to an exciting opportunity to get our fall camps ready at the Field Experience Centre. This can be a chance to get to know other families in our Connect Charter School community and give parents the experience of camping out at our facility while volunteering their efforts to help us make our Field Experience Centre the best it can be. Please plan to roll up your sleeves and get a little dirty.

Date: Friday, August 26 4:00 p.m. onward to Saturday, August 27 at 1:00 p.m.

Food:

Friday Night: Pizza and Campfire Marshmallow Roast

Saturday Morning: Continental Breakfast

Saturday Lunch: Hotdogs (Vegetables, fruit or salad are also offered)

*At this time we are unable to accommodate specific dietary needs.

Accommodation:

Bring your own tent and sleeping gear. If you do not have a tent, sleeping in the communal dining hall is available (mattresses provided.)

Location:

Across from Sibbald Lake Campground in Kananaskis. No park pass will be needed if you are parking on our premises.

RSVP:

Please contact [email protected] by Monday, August 22 if you plan to attend and whether you will be staying overnight. Supervision of children will be a parent responsibility.
