Thank You’s

Thank you so much to Liz and Krista for all their hard work with the Entertainments Books!  And thank you to all the families that supported this fundraiser, thanks to your hard work we raised over $2000.  As special shout out to Ms. Norris’ class who sold more than any other class!

Thank you to all the Lochside staff who worked so hard to make this first week back as smooth as possible. 

Fill The House Food Collection

Great news Lochside families!  LEPAC will still be organizing the Fill the House Food collection this year.  Due to the strike, we have changed the dates of collections to Dec 2-13th so that we can have time to organize as well as for our families to have the full 2 weeks to bring their donations.  If anyone would like to volunteer, please email  

Christmas Tree Wishlist

Great news Lochside families!  LEPAC will still be organizing the Christmas Tree Wishlist this year as well.  We will email everyone the official dates as soon as we have confirmed our Lochside wishlist!  Please stay tuned!!!!!!

Lochside Apparel

Order your fabulous Lochside Apparel now!  They make super Christmas gifts! Order Deadline is Monday, November 25th.

Holiday Book Sale Donations Needed!

We will be having a holiday book sale again this year, which allows each child to pick a book of their choice to give to a family member for Christmas.  This is such a neat time for children to be able to choose a gift for a loved one by themselves. In order to make this happen we do need donations of books, wrapping paper and bows/ribbons. There will be boxes at the front office to place your donations in. Thanks in advance!

Middle School Assessment Practices

This year, all Saanich Middle Schools will be changing their assessment practices to reflect the BC Ministry of Education guidelines for communication of learning. Carly Hunter, Director of Instruction: Learning and Innovation, will be leading a district-wide parent information meeting to discuss these changes at Bayside Middle School on December 3 at 7:00 pm.

For further information, please see Carly's information letter

Upcoming dates:
