Hello Coyote Creek Families!

We are looking forward to the onset of our Heritage Week next week! February 7-11 will provide us with a great opportunity to celebrate the multicultural heritage of our students. We are looking forward to a week full of excitement and engagement around the celebration of our multicultural identities. We will be sending home a crest for students to complete and send back to school that will be on display around our gym walls. We will also be welcoming Shyama-Priya to share indigenous dance with our students. Please see a full week plan below of how our school will be honouring Heritage Week.

Parking Lot Safety

We want to ensure the safety of our Coyote Creek families during busy times at arrival and dismissal. Please note that our parking lot is for staff only. As the weather improves and winter softens into spring, we hope that many of our families will take advantage of the good weather and walk or bike to school.
