GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS
Math Contest Writers

Congratulations to all the students who wrote math contests this year. This year, certificates, medals and awards for Math contests will be available for pick-up at a table outside the theatre just before and after the Awards Ceremony this WEDNESDAY afternoon.  Please watch your emails for a list of what awards you have won.

Report Cards
Students or parents can pick up report cards at the school on FRIDAY June 29, 9:30-1:30.  Report cards will not be mailed out.

B.C. Training and Education Savings Grant
Parents and guardians of eligible children are reminded that a deadline is fast approaching to sign up for the $1,200 B.C. Training and Education Savings GrantChildren born in 2006 or later are eligible for the grant. The deadline for those born in 2007 to 2009 is Aug. 14, 2018, or the day before the child’s ninth birthday — whichever is later. At the time of application, the child and at least one parent or guardian must be a resident of British Columbia.
The grant may be used toward full-time and part-time studies in a wide range of programs, including vocational schools, apprenticeships, trades training, college or university. There are no additional fees or financial contributions needed to receive the $1,200 grant, so parents and families who cannot afford to put aside savings at this time can still start a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP). Even the smallest investment can grow over time, making it easier to pursue a post-secondary education.
Signing up is as easy as stopping in at a local bank or financial institution to complete a simple application for an RESP. If approved, the $1,200 grant will be deposited directly into the RESP. Once deposited, the investment grows tax free.
