We hope that everyone had a fun summer! A few reminders as we start our new school year
School starts on Tuesday, September 6 for a half day only.  Students will be dismissed at 11:45am.

There is no need for students to bring their new school supplies until we move into our new classes.  Students are welcome to bring a few basic school supplies for the first days of school to work with.

Returning students are to go to their last year’s classroom for the first few days of school until we switch to our new classes.

Any new students are to meet in the gym on Tuesday morning.  We will help these students get to an assigned classroom.

Full days of classes start on Wednesday, September 7 with our regular school day hours, 8:45am-2:53pm

If your child was on the Lunch Program last year, please note that this program does not start untilMon, Sept.  12.  Please be sure to send a lunch with your child for the first week of school.

New Kindergarten students start their staggered entrance on Friday, September 9.  Their first full day of school is not until Wednesday, September 14.  If any of the new Kindergarten families need clarification of their group time for the staggered entrance, please call the school office.

If your student is a new bus student this year – either new to our school or new to taking the bus, please call the school and let the office know.
We wish everyone a great start up!

Sooke Elementary School Principles of Learning Project

March 9, 11:00 AM-1:00 PM  University of Victoria

Grade five students and teachers at Sooke Elementary School have taken part in a ground-breaking pilot project to incorporate First Peoples Principles of Learning into public school curriculum. Developed by the First Nations Education Steering committee, the First Peoples Principles of Learning draw on indigenous knowledge and worldviews to cultivate leadership, collaboration, and critical and creative thinking. In a series of displays, collages, and informal conversations, teacher, students, and UVic researchers will share how the Principles of Learning can transform the teaching and learning process.
