Supporting the students and families from Hudson’s Hope
During the evacuation, several schools in our district offered space and activities for the Hudson’s Hope students and their families.
One such activity was the use of the Maker Space Room at Bert Ambrose Elementary.
In addition to providing a space for activities and learning, the Hudson’s Hope students also received cards from Bert Ambrose students.
Examples like this played out across the region.
Operations / HR
- Projections were for 6094 fully-funded students in all programs
- September 30 snapshot revealed 6116, therefore we are 22 over projections
- General trend is increased enrolment in brick and mortar schools with a decline in online learning programs
Proactive – Student & Educator Wellness
All SD60 employees have access to “TeacherFit”, an on-demand health, wellness and fitness program designed specifically for educators and school district employees.
TeacherFit provides weekly fitness, yoga, mindfulness and nutrition options for you. It also includes weekly brain breaks and mindfulness sessions for students that can be embedded into class. Further, you can access the full bank of each of these features that has been built up over time.

C. M. Finch Elementary
We have had a wonderful start to the school year full of many exciting community events. We had our Terry Fox Run, an Open House and Orange Shirt Day for Truth & Reconciliation.
The highlight of September was our School Carnival on Thursday, September 22nd that was put on by our school PAC. This event had all of the usual carnival games and a barbecue. And it was very well attended.
We look forward to hosting more events for the school community throughout the school year!

Clearview Elementary Jr Secondary
One of our school goals this year is to increase authentic parent engagement in our student’s learning. For a week we had Angie Pomeroy come to our school to teach students and staff dance. On Thursday, October 6th, more than 110 students, staff, family and community members joined in an evening dance. Students were able to demonstrate what they had learned to their parents, siblings, grandparents and extended families.
