Grade 8 Activity Day - Tues. September 18th

Dear Parents/Guardians of Grade 8 students,

Re:  Grade 8 Activity Day on Tuesday, September 18th 

This year, Hugh Boyd Secondary School will be running our Grade 8 Activity Day on Tuesday, September 18th.  The purpose of this day is to establish a cohesive, unified group that will learn and grow throughout their five years together.  Activities will be centered around school orientation, recreation, and creating new friendships as well as strengthening old ones.  

The cost for the Activity Day is $25 per student (payable through School Cash Online – instructions on how to sign-up are on the school website) which includes bus transportation, pizza and bowling at Lucky 9 Lanes, as well as a t-shirt. We want to encourage all Grade 8 students to attend, as this will be a wonderful opportunity to engage in a variety of orientation activities.

If cost is a challenge for your family, please contact the school by phone to speak with Mr. Johal or email rjohal@sd38.bc.ca– we want ALL of our Grade 8 students to participate!
The timeline for the day is as follows:

  • 8:20 – 10:30 am: school-based activities (library/school/WRCC orientation and transition to Gr 8 workshop)
  • 10:30 – 1:45 pm: travel to Lucky 9 Lanes for lunch and bowling then return to school
  • 1:45 – 2:44 pm:   school-based activities (library/school/WRCC orientation and transition to Gr 8 workshop)

Please have your son/daughter return the attached Field Trip Consent Form to the main office by Friday, September 14, 2018.
We also request that the fee of $25 is paid through online payment (School Cash Online) no later than Monday, September 17, 2018.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call the school at 604-668-6615.  We are looking forward to a fun and educational time for all of our Grade 8s.
