Welcome to Keppel-Sarawak Elementary School

FROM THE OFFICE....

Winter is finally here and it is COLD outside! Please ensure your child(ren) have proper outdoor clothing in order to keep warm during recess times, as well as outdoor education opportunities throughout the school day.

There is always lots happening at Keppel-Sarawak school. We currently have ringette intramurals happening in our gym for Grade 3 to 6 students and our Spirit Club, Eco-Team, Skittles Club and Makwa Indigenous Leadership Group are all adding variety to the extra-curricular opportunities students can take part in during recess time.

Dance Club will be starting soon and a special Grade 2 music project is also under way - stay tuned for more information about these events as well!

COMING SOON - Literacy Week at KS! We will be hosting another Read-a-Thon at Keppel-Sarawak to raise money for the 2nd phase of our Library Refresh project. The dates of the Read-A-Thon will be Jan. 29th - Feb. 1st. We are hoping to have an official opening of our new library space on Feb. 1st - this is a very BIG accomplishment and we could not have done it without help from our AMAZING community! More information will be coming home soon about this special event!

It is always a joy working, learning and playing together at Keppel-Sarawak!

As always, our door is always open and we are only a phone call or visit away.

2024-25 KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND HERE(or by going to our Kindergarten Registration page under the Families/ Communities tab).


Take care and see you soon!

Your partners in education,

Laurie Gilkinson (Principal) & Brent Thompson (Vice-Principal)



LIBRARY PROJECT UPDATES:
Our Library Project is in FULL SWING! So far we have raised approximately $40,000 for this project
.....WAY TO GO COUGARS!

Our BWDSB maintenance team has been incredibly supportive in the demolition process of this project over the summer. We have a clean slate ready to welcome our new and improved library furniture.

Check out this video from a former Keppel Cougar who had a very special message for us last year......


True to her word, Cheryl Hickey (host of ET Canada) attended our Spring Carnival fundraiser as well as our Keppel's Got Talent Show where she was part of a grand-finale of getting a pie in the face, along with several KS teachers, as part of our fundraising challenge for this Library Project!

Cheryl has also been instrumental in partnering with some Canadian companies to garner some additional support for our project!

Cheryl is a true example of how small home towns hold a special place in your heart and "Once a KS cougar - always a KS cougar! We are forever grateful for her support with this project!

We are currently working on the finishing touches to this special project and we need to raise an additional $5,000 to ensure our project if fully completed this year. Stay-tuned as we keep you posted as things continue to evolve and thank you to all who have supported our cause!
