School Reopens for Students


Once again, we thank the Placentia Lions’ Club and everyone who sold and bought cards for their continued support of our school! We raised $2660. This money will be used to offset the cost of our year end trip. If you haven’t already done so, we kindly ask that you send along any money owing for Bingo cards for the month.


We thank you again for your continued support of our recycling fundraiser. The contest for May ends Friday, May 31. The top 10 recyclers will be treated to lunch next week. The contest for June will end on Friday, June 21 with the top recyclers being treated to lunch the following week.


As much as possible, students will be going outdoors during recess (primary) and lunch (elementary).

Therefore, please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather each day.


The Trackfest Annual Track and Field Meet will take place on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at the MUN Field House in St. John’s.

The cost of registration for this event will be covered by money raised from our bingo fundraiser.
