Concert, Bouncy Castle, Facepaint, Bubbles – End of Year Party! – June 22

It’s hard to believe that there’s only one month of school left before the summer break! We have another month of music classes with Tangle, visits to the Library, Rainbow Day, Teddy Bear Picnic, and plenty of outdoor time. Then on Friday, June 22nd, please join us from 10am to noon in Lions Park for our End of Year Party. Please arrive at 10, because Ms. Tangle will be giving a concert/puppet show including some of your children’s favorite songs from Preschool, perfect for all of us to sing and dance along with the music.

  • 10:00am-10:30am Show with Ms. Tangle McClaron
  • 10:30am-12:00pm Party!
    • Bouncy Castle
    • Facepainting

Let’s keep our fingers crossed for good weather! If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we will have a back-up location booked. We will send out an email to all families on the morning before the party if we need to move to the back-up location.

We look forward to seeing you at the party!

Are you friendly, detail-oriented, organized, and interested in art and quality craft? This year will be the 22nd annual Canmore Christmas Artisans Market and we are seeking a new coordinator to take over the helm and maintain the market’s position as a much-loved community event. This is a very part-time position, except during the third week in November.

Register for 2017-2018 online now – and attend AGM on March 1st!

You may now submit your registration for 2017-2018 by clicking on the orange button above and to the right.

Families who attend our AGM & Registration Night at 7pm, March 1st, at the Holiday Inn (1 Silvertip Trail, Nakiska Room) are placed in classes before those who do not attend. So please remember to come to the meeting! We will keep it short and sweet.
