Connect Charter Family Weekly Update

June 5 - June 9

This Week's Highlights

Our grade 9 students reach new heights at the Blue Lake Camp near Canal Flats, British Columbia.


Connect’s End of Year BBQ is BACK and we’re celebrating with a student concert! 

ALSO – please help spread the word….! We love to welcome back Connect Charter alumni so if you are in touch with anyone, let them know they are welcome to drop by!

Pre-registration and participation will help make this a success! Note that EVERYTHING is on ONE FORM hosted by Signup Genius – SCROLL DOWN to find all of the menu options. Once you make a selection to RSVP, volunteer or add a meal, a “SAVE & CONTINUE” button will appear at the very bottom of the page. This will take you through the secure check-out process.

Food Order deadline is June 7. There will be limited on-site, cash-only items for sale. The best way to ensure you get a meal is to pre-order (and please bring your email confirmation). 

Questions? Please let us know.



THANK YOU TEACHERS & STAFF! School Council, with support from ongoing fundraising initiatives, treated Connect teachers and staff today with an Appreciation Lunch. The Venezuelan “Arepas Ranch” food truck served up a tasty meal to everyone during today’s PD day. Not leaving anyone out, Grade 9 teachers and staff at camp were welcomed off the bus with a Door Dash gift card. THANKS again to everyone at Connect for delivering on another great year!
