Please Use Caution Around School Grounds:  With the snow melting and freezing temperatures over night, please use caution around the school grounds.  District work crews and school Administrators are  working to ensure that cleared  pathways are salted.  Children are also reminded to please stay away from the tree areas that have been closed due to fallen branches.  

Heart Beat Hop, Friday, March 1st, 9:00 a.m.:  Please join us Friday, March 1st on the back blacktop for a whole School Fundraiser in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Students will run or hop their way to earning valuable funds to support the 2019 Jump Rope for Heart Campaign!  A fundraising pledge envelope will be sent home this week; however, if you do wish to donate, we encourage you to do so online, as it is fast and easy:

Click on the DONATE button and scroll down to Donate to a School (Cordova Bay).

We thank you for supporting your child with their fundraising goal and kindly thank those families who are able to support Cordova Bay School’s 2019 fundraising efforts! The last day to return pledge envelopes or make an online donation is Friday, March 1st.

Please note that the school has opted out of receiving prizes for our fundraising efforts. Our goal is to foster a sense of community and intrinsic motivation to support a good cause with this combined jump rope/running event. We thank you for supporting your child with this goal.

The Power of Why:  Change Can be Difficult in Education – Well, We Need to Get Over That!
