Sangster Newsletter June 2019

This Wednesday, our Division 1 and 2 classes will be hosting a Young Entrepreneur Sale.  They have been preparing for this sale for the last two months.  Students have developed original products, financial plans, along with marketing plans.  The sale will be held on Wednesday in the gym from 10:30-2:30 (closed at lunch).  All classes will have an opportunity to visit the sale and purchase an item.  Products range in price from $1 to $4.50. Families and community members are welcome to attend.

Young Entrepreneur Sale

Thank you to our Sangster PAC and all of the parent, staff, and student volunteers that helped prepare and run another wonderful Spring Fair yesterday evening. It was great to see all of the families enjoying themselves! Have a great weekend everyone!


Just a reminder that this Tuesday, May 14th is Backwards Day!  Show your school spirit by wearing some (or all) of your clothes backwards. Backwards jewelry and hairstyles can be fun too.  We look forward to seeing what you come up with!


Do you remember, last October, when Sangster Elementary participated in the CRD’s Walk and Wheel to School Week?  We tracked our walking and wheeling trips to school with stickers on a large poster.  Turns out, Sangster Elementary had the most walking trips compared to the other schools! 

The CRD and Island Health staff are coming to congratulate us and celebrate our active travel choices. 

Come visit the Celebration Station with snacks, prizes and active travel trivia and healthy lifestyle games.

When: Wednesday, May 8th

Time: from 8:15am until the school bell rings

Where: in front of the school

See you there!
