Closing of Rolla Discovery School - student transition

The Board of Education of School District No.59 approved a bylaw to close Rolla Discovery School at the end of the school year. Ecole Frank Ross is the named enrolling school for the area, however, current students will have priority enrolment in any Dawson Creek Elementary School, as long as space is available in the school, for the 2017-18 school year.The current catchment area for the school will be adjusted to reflect the school closure.

Families must notify the Transportation Department to indicate the new school where their child is registered as adjustments will be made to transportation service.  Any new families, or families currently not using bus service but wish to register for the service must contact the bus garage at 250-782-2106. 


Is Your Child Ready For Kindergarten?

School District 59 offers many early learning programs to help prepare children for starting school.

The Ready, Set, Learn program is intended for families and their three and four year old children.  The program provides information about how to support a young child’s early learning and development. It also develops positive connections between families, the school system and local community agencies.

Attend a Ready, Set, Learn event in your community. Families who attend an event at a local school take part in play-based activities while finding out about early learning programs and services.

The Welcome to Kindergarten™ program helps prepare pre-kindergarten children for a positive start to their school journey. Parents/caregivers and their children attend orientation sessions at their neighbourhood school where they receive early learning and literacy resources, and learn how to use them at home. The orientation helps create the foundation for positive relationships between parents, teachers and community agencies that sets the stage for a smooth transition to school and future success. 

Check out the attached poster for the dates and times of these awesome events in SD 59 schools.
