GRAD AUCTION DINNER

This annual event will take place April 15th which means it is time to canvass local Chilliwack businesses for items to donate to the auction. The item you bring in will be auctioned off and 50% of the proceeds will go to your grad tickets. The more items you bring in, the more money you make towards your tickets. Invite your family, neighbors and co-workers to the auction. It is up to you to sell this dinner out.

LOCAL SCHOOL CALENDAR 2015-16

In accordance with the requirements of the School Act, the Board of Education is seeking public and employee feedback on the Local School Calendar for the 2015-2016 school year.

The 2015-2016 Local School Calendar includes a 2 week Spring Break. Grade 8 to 12 students will receive 954 hours of instruction. This is a slight increase from 315 minutes/day as there were 182 instructional days for students in the 2014-2015 school year.

The Ministry requires 878 hours of instruction for Grades 1 to Grade 7 students and 853 hours of instruction for Kindergarten students. With 180 instructional days and 300 minutes/day, the hours of instruction for Kindergarten to Grade 6 students are 900.

NOTE: Grade 7 students in Chilliwack School District are included in Middle Schools and therefore receive 954 hours of instruction, well above the required number.
