Ready, Set, Learn

downloadTypically at this time of the year, our school hosts Ready, Set, Learn to support three and four year olds in our community. Ready, Set, Learn is about fostering positive connections between families, the school system and local community agencies. As a result of Covid 19, we are unable to facilitate Ready, Set, Learn. In light of this, our District has developed a website called surreyschoolsone.ca that provides parents with activities to support learning at home. It has also provided some activities, resources and a list of community partners you may find helpful. Please see the list of ideas below:

Literacy Activities:

Numeracy Activities:

Social Emotional Learning Activities:

Other Videos:

Dear Pacific Heights families,

I hope you are continuing to be well in these very different times.  Here at school we continue to  plan and look ahead to next year.  In that spirit, it is my pleasure to welcome Mr. Stephen Hardy to the Pacific Heights community.  Mr. Hardy will be the principal of Pacific Heights as of July 1st, 2020.   I know based on my experiences working with Mr. Hardy, that he is a thoughtful and kind person.  He is a curricular leader with a student centered focus.  He is a great fit for Pacific Heights. Please read his message below:

Hello Pacific Heights Community,

hardyMy name is Stephen Hardy and I have the great privilege of having been appointed Principal of Pacific Heights starting July 1. I am both excited and honoured by the opportunity to be part of such a great school. A little bit about me. With the exception of 2 years at SFU as a Faculty Associate and 3 years as Principal of an independent school, I have been an educator in Surrey since 1992. For the past 5 years, I have worked as a District Principal in Human Resources and while I have enjoyed working at the District level, I welcome the chance to return to school-based work. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about the Pacific Heights community and look forward to meeting you all.

Sincerely,

Mr. S. Hardy
