This Week's Highlights

Our Elder in Residence, Adrien Goulet, guides our grade 8 campers in teepee teachings. This is the second year that Adrien has shared his wisdom with our students.   

School Council and Parent Society meet on Tuesdays about once a month through the school year.  All parents/guardians are invited to come to the school to attend or connect through GoogleMeets.  These meetings will begin at 6:30 p.m. with an overview from the principal followed by school council agenda items and parent society agenda items. A link for the online meetings will be provided closer to the meeting date.

We are fortunate at Connect to have a dedicated team of bus drivers, many who have been with us for some time. In order to ensure the safety and smooth riding experience for all, the following expectations were reviewed with all students in our welcome back assembly last week. These expectations are relevant to all students, whether they ride the school bus to and from school, or ride the bus on a field trip.

Care for yourself, care for others and care for this place!


  • Respect your driver they have a challenging and important job
  • You are required to sit in your assigned seats at all times
  • School devices are not to be used on the bus
  • If you are using a personal device (e.g cell phone) please use headphones
  • Conduct yourself as you would on public transit
  • Not following these expectations may result in students losing riding privileges.

Have a wonderful week, Connect!

Sincerely,

Shannon Bennett
