Dewdney Elementary is a great place in which to grow and learn. Our school is located in the country, just east of Mission, British Columbia, Canada. We have approximately 75 students from Kindergarten through Grade 6.
We are proud of our excellent fine and performing arts programs. Students enjoy athletics and intramurals as well as field trips. Literacy and Learning is a primary educational focus for us. We are always greatful for the high level of involvement of our parents. We welcome new and returning families who truly make this an exciting learning community.
Registration will begin the week of February 2, 2015.
Information regarding Kindergarten Registration for Neighbourhood Schools & Programs / Schools of Choice can be found here.
We encourage outside play for all children…although we understand our “wet coast” weather. Students will have the opportunity to get some fresh air and still stay dry under our large overhangs. We would ask that you talk to your children about not getting wet and asking to phone home for a change of clothes. We would encourage students to bring a change of clothes to stay at school if they accidentally get wet. Some days, the field and grass may be wet but the weather is fine. Again, we want to encourage play, but please send a change of clothes to school in a bag with their name on it.
In case of problematic weather arriving and causing school closure decisions, district-wide or partial, please click on this link: http://www.mpsd.ca. ***NEW*** You will see an area where you can now sign up with the school district to get an email when the schools are closed. Please take advantage of this new service. Decisions about school schedules and bus route changes are generally made before 6:30 a.m. This allows for the most current weather information to factor into the decision. The final decision to send students to school resides with parents since they best know the road and weather conditions in their respective areas.
