Save-on Foods and the Kootenay Coop will contribute a percentage to our school based on the amount of cards that our school buys. Please download the Wildflower Grocery Card Order Form and return it to the office before May 30.

The tickets are $2 each, 5 for $6, or $15 for a ‘wing span’ of tickets. The students will be selling the tickets in the hall at lunch time and after school. If they are not there, you can get them from Anne in the office too.


Guitar Lessons

André van Berlo is hoping to start guitar lessons here at Wildflower after school in the 2nd or 3rd week of May. The lessons will be a fun, well paced and step-by-step guitar course for kids. He has been doing classes at Blewett School and they have been well received.

During this course the children are taught the basics of how to play guitar: holding the guitar, tuning, first chords, strumming, and more. Each guitar class takes about 1 hour and will be scheduled right after school on either Mondays or Thursdays at our school.

If you’re interested in finding out more about this course please download and check out the e-flyer here: http://geni.us/wildflowerguitar
