Make Your Voice Heard!

The Vancouver DPAC (https://vancouverdpac.org/)is collecting feedback for meetings with the VSB and a potential meeting with the Minister of Education.  Please let us know what you think on the following issues so that we can provide feedback on behalf of Trafalgar by completing this brief survey here.

Grade 7 English Galiano Island Trip Fundraiser

The grade 7 English students have the opportunity to visit the Gulf Islands Film and Television school on Galiano Island in June. To help fundraise, the students will be running a snack bar from now until spring break. The snack bar will be set up under the covered area at recess. Most items will cost one dollar. So you can now send the kids to school with a loonie or toonie and skip packing that recess snack!

The students will also be holding a silent auction at the Spring Festival on February 17th. Families who would like to donate items, products and services, are invited to contact trafagarfilmtrip@gmail.com by this Friday, Feb 10th.

The Grade Seven Film School Committee thanks Trafalgar families for their support.

Safe Arrival Needs You!

If you have some time to spare after drop off, please contact Cherie, the safe arrival coordinator, at trafalgarsafearrival@gmail.com to find out more about how you can help. Thank you!
