Kateslem will be having our Thanksgiving dinner at Como Lake Middle School, on Thursday, October 19th.  We will have over 100 people attending from all our schools.

We are also hosting a pumpkin carving contest at Glen Elementary on October 27th, with all 7 of our schools… which everyone is super excited about.

Stay tuned for more.

Hope everyone is having a great Fall!Kateslem After School Program supporting Youth At Risk in Coquitlam

Summer Garden & Back To School

We have spent all summer growing our vegetable garden (which is located at Como Lake Middle School) and the kids got to help strengthen the garden fencing we put in last year.  Here are some photos of the garden, and one of the kids helping to reinforce the fencing.

Our garden is a year round project.  Every school takes a turn at looking after the gardening.  Kateslem kids grow all the veggies and fruits and use them in our program… and whatever excess we have goes home to their families. This year’s crop was the biggest ever… we had tomatoes, beans, peas, radishes, green onions, zucchinis, peppers, squash and cucumber.

We will have lots of healthy veggies to start September with!
