Welcome to Keppel-Sarawak Elementary School


Spring is in the air and the snow if finally melting away! Our playground tends to get quite muddy when the weather warms up and rainy days are upon us....please be sure your child has appropriate outdoor clothing and a change of dry clothing available if they get wet or muddy during recess time!

As always, there is lots happening at Keppel-Sarawak!
Dance Club is in full swing and there are approximately 130 Kindergarten to Grade 6 students taking part in this opportunity. We are looking forward to their performance on April 6th!

Our junior students are busy with Floor Hockey Intramurals during recess.

The Skittles Club and Champions Program meet once each week to discuss ways we can honour diversity in our school and promote a welcoming and inclusive environment for all who come to our school. They also lead the way in supporting student mental health and well-being.

We are in the midst of our annual City-Wide Food Drive to support the Salvation Army, OShare and the Owen Sound Animal Shelter. This is a great way to support our local community! Let's get those boxes filled, Cougars!

2023-24 KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND HERE(or by going to our Kindergarten Registration page under the Families/ Communities tab).

As always, please don't hesitate to give us a call or stop in to speak with us if you have any questions or concerns about your child's experiences at our school.

Your partners in education,

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

Our Read-A-Thon fundraiser has raised @ $9200 and we couldn't be more proud of our KS Cougars for the commitment they showed to reading this week in support of our Library Project! We have had several additional donations dropped off at our school and we will be adding these to our grand total very soon.....WAY TO GO COUGARS! Check out this video from a former Keppel Cougar who had a very special message for us....

Thanks to everyone for your ongoing support for this project.

We are very hopeful our new library will become a reality very soon!
