NEWS RELEASE · 11th June 2010
Launched by the Province of B.C. in September 2008 and delivered in partnership with Evergreen, Trees for Tomorrow is a five-year, $13- million initiative aimed at helping communities plant four million trees in schoolyards, hospital grounds, civic parks and other public spaces in British Columbia.
Ecole Kiti K’Shan was the recipient of $11,500 in funding for the Trees for Tomorrow grant in 2009. This joint initiative between the students & staff of Kiti K’Shan, School District #82, Uplands Nursery and the Kiti K’Shan PAC is coming to an end with a celebration at the school on June 23rd at 4:00pm. Over the past year, students have helped plant native tree and shrub species on the school grounds at Kiti K’Shan.
The school would like to invite the residents of the local neighbourhoods on the Southside and community of Terrace to help celebrate this new green space. Please join us for cupcakes and a tour of the school grounds.
The school PAC and students felt it was important to give back to the neighbourhood which has always been very supportive of the school. We hope that the green space will be a legacy appreciated for generations to come.
After 43 years of serving as a school on the Southside, Ecole Kiti K’Shan will be closing as of June 25th, 2010. The current population will be moved to the Mountainview School on Bailey Street.
French Immersion is a popular choice for many residents of Terrace and the school celebrates it rich diversity with students coming from all catchment areas of the Terrace/Thornhill areas. Registration for this school is still open. Students may start French Immersion at the Kindergarten or Grade One levels. Spaces are very limited, families who are interested are encourage to register early to avoid disappointment.
