Parents/Guardians of previous science fair participants we are asking if you could please check for the large wood science fair boards at your house as we have one that has gone missing. We would love to have it back as it was built especially for our District Science Fair participants. Thank you so much for taking a look.
Please take a look at our website at https://pine.prn.bc.ca it also has a calendar included that we try to keep updated as much as possible.
Have a great weekend.

In support of the Humboldt Broncos we will be having a green shirt or jersey day on Monday, April 8th.
We are sad to announce the loss of our Skate Shack this past week. You will notice a new fence around the area – please stay away as there is an investigation happening. No one was hurt in the fire but we did lose some PE equipment that was stored in there. When we know more about the timeline of clean up and the possibility of rebuild we will be letting you know, we will also let you know about the possibility of donating to help us get this area back on its feet.
Spring break is here – and some students would say “FINALLY!!”
Enjoy the time together with family and friends.
See you back at school – April 1st.
Apples Schools will be out to the school Thursday at 5:00pm in the library. Come and see this exciting presentation about a wonderful opportunity for our Upper Pine School community to learn about healthy living, healthy eating and mental well being.
