With the passing of Winter Break and with snowy and icy weather (hopefully) behind us, construction on the Rumble Street utilities and road improvements has restarted. The construction crews will be working on the section of Rumble Street in front of the school and the adjacent school yard and parks.
The traffic patterns along Rumble Street will be continually changing depending on the work being done. Traffic flag people will be working to ensure that traffic flows as safely and smoothly as possible and that school community pedestrians can safely navigate the school area.
We remind our community drivers to be patient and follow the instructions of the traffic flag people and obey all posted parking restrictions. Pedestrians are also reminded to use the marked crosswalk whenever possible and follow the instructions of the traffic flag people.
Closure of the Parking Lot in Front of Suncrest Elementary
The construction crews have also announced that the parking lot in front of the school will be closed permanently effective tomorrow (Thursday, February 16th).
The Grade 7 Parent Year-End Event and Fundraising Meeting is tonight (Wednesday, February 15th) at 6:00 p.m. in the school library.
All of our Grade Seven parents and guardians are invited to join us for this meeting.
Throughout the 2015/16 school year, educators in our District continued to come together to share ideas, best practices and engaging lessons that would bring the new curriculum alive in our classrooms. This year it will be fully implemented throughout BC from kindergarten to grade 9. The Ministry of Education will continue to work closely with school districts on finalizing the redesigned curriculum for grades 10-12, which is expected to be implemented in the Fall of 2017.
To learn more about the new curriculum and its implementation, please visit our district website to read a letter from Minister of Education, Mike Bernier.
To increase the safety, security and ease of payments, Suncrest Elementary will be joining the rest of the Burnaby School District in offering School Cash Online as a payment option. From this point forward, families will have the option of making payments either through School Cash Online or through cheque. Cash will no longer be accepted as payment for school fees. Please contact the school if you have any questions about the payment options.
