Returning to School in June

Our school will be offering a partial in person schedule starting the week of June 1st. Students will be participating in smaller classes for two, back-to-back days. Classes will be at most half size and there will be health and safety protocols in place. Staff will be contacting those families who have not already contacted the school to ask if you would like your child(ren) to come back to school. Please send information to bertambrose@prn.bc.ca

For families that choose not to send children to school, remote learning support will be provided. The level of support and scheduled online events for remote learning will change from what was provided in April and May.

Yearbook Ordering

Only a few days left to order your Bert Ambrose 2020 Yearbook.  Not only is our school going to be changing a lot after this year, this is a huge year in our history, so you won’t want to miss out on this memorable treasure.  Because of the current financial circumstances for many, we have greatly discounted our yearbooks to make them more affordable for families.  If anyone would like to sponsor another family who may not be able to afford their yearbook this year, please contact Tanya at bertambroseyearbook@gmail.com.  The deadline to order your yearbook is May 22nd.  Because we are not at the school to take cash orders, we ask that you please place your order online.  If you are unable to do so, please contact Tanya at the email above.   When placing your order, please include your child’s grade and teacher’s name. (if grade shows up as the homeroom number, please adjust it)Order your yearbooks at: ORDER YEARBOOKS HERE ​Note that yearbooks will be delivered to students in September.  Yearbooks will be delivered to Dr. Kearney and Anne Roberts Young for those who will be moving on.   If your family will be moving to another school or out of the city, please email us to let us know so that we can get the yearbook sent to the right place.  
Thank you for your support, and keep sending us those great photos of your children learning from at home.

Growing Smiles Fundraiser

Message from our PAC:
Our Growing Smiles delivery is scheduled to arrive at some point on Thursday. Because of us not knowing what time the truck may arrive, we will schedule the pick up of flowers for Friday, May 15th from 9 to 11 am at the school. We will set up the pick up of your orders in the same fashion as when you picked up your child’s school work back in April. The only exception will be you will approach the table on the west side gym doors (closest to the playground) and exit with your flowers on the east side gym doors; so you don’t have to carry them quite as far to get to your vehicle. If, by some chance, the flower order comes very early Thursday morning we will try to do pick up on Thursday. We will post on our PAC Facebook page, send a mass email and will phone individual orders that are left. Please remember to social distance from one another during pick up. 
The Bert Ambrose PAC appreciates your continued support! Enjoy your  flowers . 💐
