Principal's Message


Welcome to February.  Our focus for the month of February is Friendship, Kindness and Walking Feet. This is a wonderful month to review How to Be a Good Friend. In our monthly assembly we watched  a youtube video called How Can you be a Good Friend? Good friends are loyal, good listeners, helpful, caring, honest, respectful and a lot of fun. We will be reviewing these character traits with our students and will help them practice too.

We were fortunate to have a NED assembly at our school. The students were treated to some amazing yoyo tricks but they also received a valuable message- Never Give Up, Encourage Others, Do You Best. We are reminding students of NED.

We will hold our annual Ready, Set, Learn PreSchool Session on Tues. Feb. 16th 9:15-10:30. If you have a 3 or 4 year old child, or know someone who does, please join us for this wonderful event. It is a great opportunity to find out how to prepare your preschooler for school. We hope to see many of you there.

It is always a good idea to read with your children. Even older children enjoy listening to all kinds of different stories. As you read you can ask them deep questions- "Why do you think...?" , " What would you do in this situation?..." Above all, have fun.

As always my door is open. Please feel free to give me a call or come and visit if you have questions, ideas, concerns or just want to chat.

Chilliwack Principals & Vice Principals Information Video

The Leadership Standards document developed by the BCPVPA Standards Committee is the foundation that underpins the Chilliwack Principals and Vice-Principals ongoing work and leadership in the Chilliwack Community. Please see video link below for more information:


Promontory Heights Elementary Community School opened in November 2000. It is located on Promontory Hill which is below Mount Thom and on the hillside that leads to the Ryder Lake area

It began  as a school of under 300, and over a short period of time, grew to over 600 students and currently enrolls  approximately 580 students. In order to accommodate this many students in a school that was built to enroll 350 students, we utilize seven portables. 

As you can imagine, Promontory Heights Elementary is a busy place. Even though we have 580 students we work hard to maintain a community feel to the school.   Recognition Assemblies bring us together to celebrate successes. Buddy classes, Peer Helpers, Activity Leaders, Helping Hands, Library/Tech helpers, Recycling and Student Lunch Monitors help to keep our primary and intermediate students familiar and in contact with each other. As a community school we are supported in serving the varied needs of our community through afterschool programs hosted by the Promontory Heights Community School Association (PHECSA)

We strive to maintain a positive, cooperative and respectful learning and working environment. Through the efforts of our staff we hope the programs and activities that we provide serve to support your child(ren) in their social, emotional and academic development.  Our school provides many opportunities for our students and families:

  • a variety of class, grade group and school wide special events and activities
  • a number of clubs and teams that participate in District events
  • a focus on social responsibility through our emphasis on STARS
  • a number of programs offered through PHECSA including on site after school daycare (Panther Pen), on site pre school, and a host of afterschool, evening, and summer programs.
  • an active, energetic and committed Parent Advisory Council

We think that Promontory Heights Elementary is a wonderful school and hope that you will find this a great place to be.
