Congratulations to Michelle in Grade 10 who was awarded first prize and $5,000 from http://www.heresmycanada.ca/ for her video which was entered in the contest in June of 2017.
We have some very limited availability on Wed, Nov.15 from 3:30-5:10 to meet some of the teachers. We will now open these spots to our Grade 8 parents and parents of new students to Ideal only. To make an appointment, please contact our secretary, Lu, in the office at 604-713-5842 during school hours.
Please note that our Student-Lead Parent Conferences will be held on Thursday, January 25 from 2:00-4:00, 5:00-7:00 pm.
Once again, our Ideal Mini Community (students, parents, teachers) came together and did another wonderful job of hosting our new prospective students and their families. Thanks to our PAC for organizing and running a wonderful bake sale, our teachers for volunteering their time all afternoon/evening to setup and speaking about our program, and of course, our current students and Leadership class for providing informative school tours. Working together is a valued part of our program here at Ideal and we certainly showed that to our guests.
Thank you to our guests for coming and good luck with the application process!
We are happy to report that we are now full for our trip to Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre for Feb 2018! Parents, please not that we will be cashing your $300 deposit cheques in the very near future. We will ask for the remaining balance in January 2018. Also, please ensure that permission forms have been signed and returned at this time. Thank you!
Our annual Halloween Potluck is just around the corner taking place on Tuesday, October 31. The first block will run as usual but following will be our traditional costume parade (judged by our teachers) followed by our potluck. Senior students who have Churchill classes will need to get a field trip form from our office and have it completed. They are expected to attend the last period of the day at Churchill, if they have a class.
Please see Sandra for the potluck food item sign up. Parents are reminded to label any dishware they wish to have back. Students are to take these back at the end of the day. Also, please provide a card indicating known ingredients in case of allergies. Students are reminded bring their own reusable plates, cups and cutlery. These will not be provided by the school.
