INFORMATION & UPCOMING EVENTS

Please be aware that School District #51 is monitoring the local flood potential.  We are in contact with the local governments and the Regional District Kootenay Boundary regarding water levels that may impact bus routes and/or schools.  If any bus routes or schools will be impacted by potential flooding we will be in contact with students and parents through our District and School Web sites and Facebook pages.  We will also use local radio for any required announcements.

PAC FUNDRAISING - Did you know, you can support the fundraising efforts of your PAC, just by buying groceries at Overwaitea? There is no extra out-of-pocket cost to you! Simply buy an Overwaitea gift card (mention that it is to support Greenwood/Midway Elementary PAC), then use your gift card to pay for your groceries! 5% of all gift card sales goes directly back to the students (field trips, special guests, and more). What a great way to help our school raise money!

FUNDRAISING - GRADES 6/7 FIELD TRIP - THANK YOU to everyone for your continued and ongoing support of our fundraising efforts. We have started dreaming/planning for the 2018 field trip.
