April was a whirlwind of activity! We started our Grade 6 Transition Activities, celebrated our volunteers at our Volunteer Tea, participated in Reading Link Challenge, held an A/B Honour and a Super Reader Assembly. Our athletic activities included a wrap up of the Girls and Boys Basketball Teams and our Floor Hockey Intermurals and a start of Touch Rugby.
Spring has sprung and it is obvious in so many of the activities going on in our classrooms. There are beanstalks growing, flowers, peas and a myriad of other types of plants and vegetables. The students are excited to see their little seeds sprouting into mighty plants and really are doing a great job of caring for them.
We continue to strive to create a school community where learning, kindness and compassion are highly valued and I am inspired as I watch our students put kindness into action.

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