Coyote’s Howl Oct 19 – 23

Dear Parents and Families,

Thank you for taking the time to read this edition of the Coyote’s Howl. We are looking forward to another busy but great week. As the weather gets a little colder and rainier, please help your child come dressed for the weather. Since we believe that our students do need to run and play as much as possible, Inside days will only be on days when there is extreme weather.


Did you know that Beach Grove Elementary has a continuing fundraiser with the Cobs Bread over at Tsawwassen Commons? All you have to do is mention Beach Grove when purchasing and our school receives 5% back.

Halloween will look a little different this year.

On Friday, Oct 30th…

  • Students may arrive at school in their costumes.
  • There will be a ZOOM Halloween Assembly where students will see costumes in other classes from their own class.
  • Parents may of course help their child get into their costume in the morning before arriving at school, but students will have to be independent with their costume once at school (especially for things like using the washroom). Remember that staff will NOT be able to help students due to COVID precautions.
  • Students will need a change of clothes. Some teachers may have students change out of their costumes sometime during the day.
  • Students may bring a small treat for themselves, but due to COVID precautions, they should not be sharing treats with others
  • There may be a chance for us to share some photos or video clips so please make sure you have reviewed and updated the media consent forms on Parent Connect.
