We would like to thank Carolyn P. and her team for doing such an amazing job with Morning Watch.  They are always there each morning welcoming our children and making sure they arrive safely. Way to go team!!!




Come out and meet our new Principal, Tom Vickers at this months LEPAC meeting this Wednesday evening from 6:30-8:00pm in the LEARNING COMMON'S ROOM.  Please note the change in location.


All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend. Childminding is available.




Please join us on Tuesday, January 22nd from 7:00 to 8:00pm as expert volunteers from Telus Wise share information on living and parenting in a digital society and internet, smartphone and social media safety.  Bring your questions!


The session is being offered at no charge, but please register at this link so that we have an idea of numbers.


We have also been asked by the facilitators for all parents attending to fill out this survey in advance of the workshop:




Lochside Elementary Used Clothing and Toy Sale


Please consider donating your children's gently used clothing and toys for the upcoming Lochside Elementary Used Clothing and Toy Sale being held Thursday Feb. 7 and Friday February 8th. The sale will be held before school 8:00-8:30am, at lunch recess and after school 2:48-3:30 both days. Donations will be accepted the day before the event Wednesday Feb. 6th after school in the gym.


There will also be a Community Garage and Bake Sale the following day Saturday February 9th which will be open to the public from 9am to 1 pm. We will be accepting donations of used furniture, artwork, household goods and all sorts of sundry items.


This is a perfect time to get some spring cleaning done and get rid of those unwanted items. Any questions about these two events can be directed to



Games in the Gym

The Gym is open every Tuesday and Thursday between now and Spring Break.  Just simply have your child get their indoor shoes and meet us in the gym.  From 8-8:35am there will be supervised activities in the gym. We will walk kindergarten students directly to class at 8:35.  Parents do not need to stay, so take advantage of early access to use the parking lot, a chance to get to work earlier, and many other benefits!
