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!
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.
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!
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!
Kateslem Programs start again on September 7th
