Community opportunities:


Schools re-open on Monday, March 27.


Pebble Hill Traditional’s 2022/2023 Grade 7 students are asking for your help. They’re raising funds toward their year-end celebration and activities. 




Two options to show your support:

  1. There will be occasional “pop-up” sales during lunch or after school that are organized and held by parents of grade 7 students and our Grade 7 Leadership Team. 
  2. Express drop off of recyclable containers at the Tsawwassen return it depot. Bag your cans and bottles in a clear plastic bag, take to the return it depot, enter Pebble Hill’s phone number 604-943-0228 at their printer kiosk, print out a label, tag your bag and drop in the express bin. It’s that simple. No sorting necessary. The funds can only be claimed by the school. If you need any assistance with bags or tags, or if you’d prefer to drop bagged items at the school, please email parent of a grade 7 student: Kelly at Kellya_76@hotmail.com to coordinate. Thanks!



Online Safety

We know helping kids stay safe while online is something many parents/guardians are concerned about. We encourage you to review the following resources for more information on the online interests of young people, the potential risks they face and proactive strategies to help keep them safe!








The Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions, in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Child Care, has developed an information sheet on substance use decriminalization for parents, guardians, and caregivers. Talking to Children and Youth about Decriminalization and Substance Use: Resources for Parents/Guardians and Caregivers is now available on the erase website.
