Grade 10 Immunizations and Grade 9 Catch up Immunizations:

Grade 10 immunizations will be occurring on Friday April 1, 2022.  The immunization consent forms will be sent home with students on Monday March 7 from their Block A classes.  Fraser Health is asking that these consent forms be signed and returned to their Block A teacher no later than Thursday March 10.

When Fraser Health was at the school to administer Grade 9 immunization, they were not able to get all Grade 9 students completed.  Fraser Health is planning to get those who missed their immunizations in February done on April 1st as well.

If you have any questions about immunization, please contact Fraser Health directly.

We, the REMSS Dry Grad Committee (all parent volunteers) are very excited to be in the planning process of the Dry Grad Celebration for our graduating class of 2022.  Due to Covid, we are still unaware of how the Dry Grad night will play out, but we are keeping hopeful for a fun event. We welcome all parents of RE Mountain to help out in donating or purchasing through our fundraiser events if you can.

Here are a few fundraisers we have set up.  If you are planning on buying easter chocolate, please consider helping out our grads through the Purdy’s Fundraiser below.  We also have a one-night Chipotle fundraiser on Wednesday March 9 from 5-9pm(see info below) Please help us where you can.

Do’s:

Send this flyer to all your friends and family. Let’s make this a good one.

WE NEED YOUR HELP SELLING PLEASE!!!  Let’s make this fundraiser a huge success!  We have $2 milk chocolate bars, $2 dark chocolate bars, $5 milk chocolate and almond bars and $5 milk chocolate crisps and chocolate bars to sell.

To help us, we would like as many parents as possible to purchase a box to help sell the bars.  If each family buys a box to sell, it’s an easy sell for you, not many bars per box, and a huge help for the Dry Grad!  The cost is $40/box for milk & dark chocolate bars and $50/box for milk chocolate almond & milk chocolate crisps).
