Principal Update May 6 – May 10 – Connect Charter School

Connect Charter Family Weekly Update

May 6 - May 10

This Week's Highlights

Our band elective shines and looks, not sounds, sharp at the recent Calgary Performing Arts Festival.



RAFFLE draw takes place on MONDAY – just 3 days to buy a chance to win WESTJET FLIGHT PASSES and 2nd prize $500!

We have sold relatively less raffle tickets than previous years, so your chances are even better to WIN! Open to all, please pass along. 

       CLICK HERE for tickets!


PLANT SALE has closed and your plants will be ready for pick up on May 14. We’ll need some volunteers (Signup Genius to come). We had to order a little bit extra to meet our minimum, so please consider reserving these if you’d like more plants or we will have them for sale at pick up (cash or your good word!). 

     – 10 pack each red and pink geraniums
     – 2 outdoor planters
     – 3 outdoor hanging planters
     – 2 indoor foliage trios

See images and descriptions HERE. If you want to reserve any of these, please EMAIL US

THANK YOU to everyone who helped with our cruddy-weather Meat Sale pick up on Tuesday! This was another successful fundraiser – now please go enjoy better BBQ weather!
