Kateslem After School Program Events

Spring 2017

The Kateslem Kids are well into the swing of Spring, with a few different events coming up.

Dragon Boating starts at Rocky Point in April, and continues through the end of May, culminating in a race against their Senior Mentors.  Regardless of the outcome, a fun time is guaranteed for all, with a big BBQ picnic after the race.

The 2017 Kateslem ‘Walk To Protect Kids’ is on again this year, with the walk scheduled for June 23rd.  The 5 km Walk will start at Como Lake Middle School and end at Hillcrest Middle School.  You can find out more information about getting involved and pledging your support, by clicking here, or on the image below.

Holiday Update

The Kateslem kids are heading to Coquitlam Center on Friday, December 9th, to pick out bears to purchase… (they will be donated to the Royal Columbian Pediatrics Ward, again this year!)

While we are at the Mall, we will also get a group picture with Santa.

And, again this year, we are making baby blankets and collecting in baby donations to donate to support the teen moms at Cabe School. (Those donations will be dropped off December 12th)

We want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday, and all the best for a safe and fun 2017!
