BINGO – IN DANGER OF CLOSING!
Our St. Bees Bingo is in critical need of more volunteers! If we do not have enough volunteers trained an in place by December 19th, we will have to close our Bingo. Please consider volunteering one Tuesday evening a month to keep our Bingo open. We are most in need of callers!
The revenue that the parish receives from bingo is significant ($75,000+ annually) with the majority of the funds going to the school. It is the main fundraiser for our school. With Bingo gone it would be a great loss felt by our parish and school community. PLEASE, Contact the Bingo office at 604-596-1833 if you can help.
Research has shown that parental involvement is the most important factor in a student’s success at school. The first student conference of the school year provides a great opportunity for you and your child’s teacher to share insights and information about him/her.
Student conferences are scheduled for Thursday, November 16th and Friday, November 17th.
We strongly encourage all parents to attend as these conferences provide an excellent opportunity to establish valuable communication between parents and teachers.

2018-2019 APPLICATION FORMS
We are now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year. With increased interest in our school, the demand for spots has also increases. We are estimating 20 or less spots for Kindergarten and only one or two spots per grade from 1 – 7.
