Columbia Park Elementary School
Our school once again has decided to go forward with a bulk purchase of school supplies , this upcoming school year. This means that families will not have to buy school supplies from a list; rather, supplies will be bulk purchased by the school and will be ready and available for your child(ren) when they arrive in September. The student agendas will be included in the supply fee. It was decided to maintain the cost of agendas and supplies at $37, payable on the first day of school, September 5th. Families with more than two children are only required to pay a maximum supply cost of $74. (If possible, families often ‘round up’ and pay $40 – the extra money generated is helped to offset costs for families in need). Parents may also choose to opt out and purchase their own supplies. For those parents, see the supply lists below for the 2017/2018 school year.
Grades 1 to 3
Grades 4 to 7
Students in grades 3,4,5,6,and 7 will be completing the BC Ministry of Education Satisfaction Survey in the next few weeks. Of course, we use this information to help us implement programs and to guide us in our planning for the future. If you would like more information, please see the following Ministry of Education website HERE. There is also a Parent Survey, but only parents of grade 4 and 7 students are invited to participate in the survey. Please click HERE if you have a child in grade 4 or 7 so you can finish the survey.

Updated December 6th, 2016. You may have heard that report cards are changing. In the November newsletter you’ll see a more in-depth discussion about Reporting. This year at CPE teachers will be using a variety of methods, such as student self-assessment and FreshGrade. Parents at CPE will engage in student-led conferences for their children in late November, and April this year (along with parent/teacher interviews on January 25 & 26). In both late November and April, a written, progress profile for each child will be given to parents as well as the student-led conference. A final, written learning profile will be issued for each student at the end of the school year.
