We have now created a Prespatou Public Calendar on our webpage with events that students and parents will want to know about. All the different activities taking place at the school, holidays, reporting periods AND when to expect report cards to come home.
The calendar is located on the lower right side of our webpage.
It has been an exciting and busy summer at Prespatou School. The PAC worked very hard at removing the old, rotting boards from the rink so that it is safe to use again. The PAC also worked at repairing/refurbishing our school ball diamonds. A great big thanks goes out to our PAC for making our school a better place!!!!!!

The following message is from the Superintendent of Schools, Dave Sloan.
Back to school is usually a time that everyone looks forward to with some anticipation. SD 60 staff have traditionally worked very hard to ensure that schools are ready for students the first Tuesday after Labour Day. Unfortunately, this year due, to the ongoing teacher’s strike it is unclear whether schools will be able to open as scheduled. Members of the Peace River Teachers Association are currently on strike and have served notice that they will not be reporting to work on Tuesday. Furthermore, the PRNTA has indicated that picket lines will be established at all, or most schools, and district offices from Tuesday September 2nd through Thursday September 4th. If these circumstances remain unchanged through the weekend, school principals will be unable to accommodate students on Tuesday September 2nd. No school buses will be running and parents are encouraged to make alternate arrangements for their students.
Like all of you, SD 60 staff continue to hope for a speedy resolution of the current labour dispute. Parents are encouraged to follow local media outlets and to check the district website at www.prn.bc.ca for updates and further information about when schools will return to regular service. Parents may also check the province’s parent information website at http://bcparentinfo.ca for more information.

Is Spring Really Here?????????
The temperature is starting to climb, the snow is melting, the trees are starting to wake up and the MUD is appearing. Please ensure that you child has a pair of inside shoes so we can minimize the amount of mud and dirt brought into the school. This would be greatly appreciated.
