The Thrifty Smile Card Program has started!

We are once again in the Thrifty Foods Smile Card program and it is UP AND READY TO GO. Load up your smile cards beforehand, then use them to pay for your groceries, and 5% comes to our wonderful school via the PAC. Grab a card from the office if you need one and keep in mind,  this is good at ANY Thrifty's location on the island, so share widely with your friends and family and we can support our school doing something we would do anyway! Easy-peasy!

Gorge Swim Fest ice cream fun!

We had a great time selling cold treats to hungry swimmers at Gorge Swim Fest today - and raised $368 for our awesome school in the process! Thanks to everyone who bought ice cream and to Brianna and Mercedes who came to help. And especially to our kid sellers and promoters extraordinaire: Iain, Johnny, Eden, Sadie, Jake and Lily - yay you! Community, summer fun and support for Vic West Elementary: a win-win-win!

And the winner of the Playground Survey draw for the Spiral Cafe gift certificates is...

... grade three student Grace and her mother Subilaga!  Congratulations on winning the draw and enjoy those Spiral Cafe treats!  Grace's creative drawing is included below, as a sample of what the Playground Team received in response to the survey.

All survey results will be compiled over the summer, posted here on our website and used as the basis for the back field playground planning process that is slated to begin in September.

Thank you to everyone who contributed their creative energy and precious time, to provide feedback, ideas and input into what our school community most wants to see, as we move forward with this playground project.  Please let us know if you want to be a part of the Playground Team by emailing, or by leaving a message on our PAC FB page.

Happy Summer!
