Grolch Bottles - Grade 12  are looking for empty Grolsh bottles, if you have any to donate, please drop them off at either the High school or at the Grade school at the front office. 


The Shoes That Were Danced to Pieces - featuring Cascadia Society and VWS Students from 4th and 8th Grades & the High School - Let your imaginations soar! Princes, princesses and dancing shoes make up the theme of this charming fairytale production. Hidden away in a far-off castle there are 12 princesses, one more beautiful than the other. Their father, the king, makes sure that they are safely tucked away in their beds at night. But in the morning, their shoes have been danced to pieces? How can this be? Come and see how the mystery is solved.

The story and original music are performed in the magical art of Eurythmy. Hand bells, lyres and other instruments add to the festive mood, to ring in the Christmas season.

Three performances at 11:30am, 1:30pm & 7:30pm at The Kay Meek Centre, 1700 Mathers Ave., West Vancouver. For 10+ tickets contact Leslie Fish 604-987-3407 or


Enjoy your week off everyone! I look forward to connecting again on Monday November 14. There will not be a Monday "Sneak Peek" or Friday "Weekly Current" until we all return.
Many blessings
