Open house

East Kensington Elementary to host info session May 7.

Parents “who are looking for options” for their elementary-school-aged children are invited to an open house at East Kensington Elementary Thursday.

The May 7 event – set for 6-8 p.m. at the 2795 184 St. school – is to include tours, a slide show and more.

Teacher Angie Witzel said a similar event last year resulted in about 15 new kindergarten registrations – more than double the five or six that are typically seen. She described East Kensington as a “little country school” that has a strong focus on environmental studies and sustainable agriculture. Local partnerships have been developed with Hazelmere Pumpkin Patch, A Rocha and Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club.

With a population of about 55 kindergarten to Grade 1 students, the community is a close one, and teachers “really get to know the kids,” Witzel said.

For more information, call 604-541-1257.
