Coming events for grade 7's

There are a number of important visits coming up for our students that are in grade 7.  The counsellors from ESS will be coming down to meet with our grade sevens in the next few weeks.  As well, staff will be meeting to have "transition" conversations to ensure the smoothest transition possible for our students to the high school program.  There will be a student visit and parent night on June 14 at 7:00 p.m. at Elphinstone Secondary.  We look forward to seeing everyone there.

We're getting a new school!

What an amazing day!  The school community of Gibsons has been waiting five years for this day.  Today it was officially announced, with a signing ceremony in Victoria, that the community of Gibsons is getting a new school to replace Gibsons Elementary.  Our grade 5 - 7 students were happy, but a little sad that they won't get to go to school in the new building. However they are really happy that it is going to happen for our students.  We look forward to watching the new school grow right before our eyes! Please take a minute to read the official press release on the home page of our website.

New look coming

Over the past month I have been working on posting our school information on our new website. I am hoping this new site will launch some time this week.  The site looks similar to our school district website.  I hope that you find it easier to find what you need about our school and enjoy the many fun recollections of the great school year that we are having.
