will run if a minimum number of students are registered.

**This is not a remedial program to catch up on subjects or get extra help, but rather an exploratory program which integrates subject areas.

***Official registration will open May 24, 2019 on the website linked below:

This year, camps will run from July 2, 2019 to July 12, 2019 (2 weeks).
Sessions will run from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm.  Summer Learning Camps are free; however, there is a $60 fee per child to help cover the cost of consumables and snacks.

*Students will be required to bring a bag lunch each day. A morning snack
will be provided.

Recent SD60 Band Performances

Thank you to Mr Price for following update about the SD60 Band Program!

The various bands of the School District 60 Band Program have been busy in a number of festivals in the past few weeks.  On April 5, the Beginning Band, Grade 7 Band, Concert Band, Senior Band and SD60 Jazz Band all performed at the Peace River North Performing Arts Festival.  The Grade 7 Band, the Concert Band and the Jazz Band all received Silver Standing, while the Beginning Band and Senior Bands both received Gold Standing.  The following Monday, the Concert Band, the Jazz Band and the Senior Band all performed at the Cantando Music Festival in Edmonton.  This non-competitive festival gave the groups the opportunity to perform on the stage at the Winspear Centre as well as the Jazz Stage the Yardbird Suite.  The students all greatly valued the performance opportunities, as well as the adjudications that they received. The trip was a very successful trip overall. Our year end concert is coming on Thursday May 9, 6:30 at the North Peace Cultural Centre.
