Division 5 has created a “Walk or Bike to School Challenge” to encourage people to be more physically active and reduce traffic pollution around our school.

We encourage you all to Walk or Bike to school if possible.  Our goal is to have 90% of our students walk or bike to school on May 30th and May 31st. 

Mark your calendars and join our challenge!

Division 1 & 2 leadership students are hosting a fundraiser to support the Burnaby Hospital Foundation. They would love your support! 

WHEN: May 26 – June 1, 2023

Join Mme Bianca Lavorata, Mme Panagiotou and the student leadership team as they host a fundraiser to support advancements in healthcare at Burnaby Hospital. Student leaders acknowledge that many members from the Aubrey community have benefited from the wonderful care provided by the team at Burnaby Hospital.

School Goal: $1,500 

Please use the online link that has been provided by the Burnaby Hospital foundation specifically for our school community.


Alternatively, you may fill out a donation card that came home today with all students!

We know that together is better, so as a team, we would like to give back to the hospital. Division 1 and 2 leadership students invite all classes and their families to kindly donate to help raise funds towards the cancer department and children’s/baby department. We would like to extend a big thank you to Ms. Hartman and the Aubrey staff for supporting this fundraiser and helping us make a difference.

Dear Families of Division 5,

On Thursday April 27th, our school will be having an early dismissal at 2 pm to accommodate student-led conferences. Families are invited to join their child for a 15-20 minute student led conference where your child will present some of their learning and show you around the classroom.

At the time of the conference, 4 other families will be meeting with their child in the same room. Students will conduct their own conferences with their families. I will be there to offer clarification or assistance if needed, however, this time is not a time for us to meet or discuss concerns or questions you may have about your child’s academic or social emotional needs, but rather it is a time for your child to showcase their learning and discuss goals and next steps.

Below is a link where you can sign up for a time that works for you to attend your child’s conference. Please keep in mind there are only 4 slots available for each timeframe. If for any reason you are unable to attend in person or these times do not work for your family please email me so that I can have your child bring home a portfolio of work so that they can conduct their conference with you at home.


If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out. It’s always exciting when students get the opportunity to share what they’ve learned and set goals for where they are going next. I look forward to seeing you all in person as you celebrate your child’s achievements.


Ms. Smith

To celebrate Earth Day on Saturday April 22nd made wildflower seed papers with our buddy class. This will be a great way to spread nature and enjoy the outdoors when it’s time to plant the seed papers.

As pollinator plants, wildflowers help to support declining bee populations and they create a habitat for birds, butterflies and other insects. Some wildflower species and insects have become extinct due to increased agriculture and by planting wildflowers we can help keep these species alive and hep maintain a healthy eco-system.

Wildflowers are low maintenance and easy to grow. They can be used in parts of the garden which are difficult to cultivate conventionally because they have naturally adapted themselves to suit difficult situations in order to survive. Also, like all plants, wildflowers will help improve the air quality of our planet

Whether you are planting the seed paper indoors or out, it should be placed under a thin layer of soil. 1/8″ – 1/4″ is ideal. Definitely no deeper than 1/4″. Wildflowers LOVE the sun so pick a location that has plenty of sunshine throughout the day. Soak the soil & seeds right after planting, although avoid having the water pool on top, and then water as needed, usually every 2-4 days depending on how hot and dry the location is. You should start to see sprouts in around 5 days!

Happy Earth Day 🌱
