On Wednesday, June 19, 2024, the Grade 4, 5 and 6’s will head to the Cultus Lake Waterslides for their year-end fieldtrip. We will be leaving promptly at 8:30 and returning at approx. 3:00.  

Parents and small children are welcome to come along for the day, but due to the high number of students, we will not be able to provide transportation. Students in Grades 4, 5 and 6 have already paid for this fieldtrip through their fieldtrip fund. Parents and siblings 4 and under who wish to come along may pay a school rate at the park. In order to respect our grade specific field trips, please do not pull other school age children from class to go to the waterslides. Students who go to the waterslides on the bus must return unless they have made arrangements with the classroom teacher.  Please note that students may only travel to and from the slides in vehicles with their parents.   

In bathing suit selection, please refer to our non-uniform standard. Please err on the side of modesty to help make staff, parents and students feel comfortable. If a child’s bathing suit does not meet these standards, they may be asked to wear a t – shirt.  

This will be a rain or shine fieldtrip so please come prepared!  

Students should have the following items: 

  • Sunscreen 
  • Hats 
  • Swimwear 
  • Clothes to change into 
  • Towels 
  • Money (optional – for the canteen)
