Upcoming field trips for Big Valley School – Big Valley Bulletin

The end of the school year is quickly coming upon us and with it special end of the year field trips. This year Big Valley’s Grades 3 to 6 classes will be going to Edmonton for two days. The first day will be spent at the Space and Science Centre while the second day will be spent splashing around West Edmonton’s Water Park. All of the students have worked very hard with their fundraising efforts to be able to enjoy this special outing. The Grade 5/6 class sold tubs of cookie dough throughout the community, while the Grade 3/4 class held their bottle drive this past week.

Thank you to everyone who generously bought cookie dough when the students came knocking on your doors. Thanks to the Rodeo Committee, Curling Club, Skating Rink, and all the community members who saved up their bottles and cans for the bottle drive. A special thank you to the Bottle Depot for all their hard work and to the parents – Shannon McTavish, Andrea Webster, Jennifer Warren and Amanda Lucki, who spent the day helping out the kids.  $973.78 was raised with the bottles and cans donated. All of the students sincerely appreciate the continued support of this generous community.

The Village of Big Valley Annual Yard Clean Up is scheduled for Tuesday, May 24. This is a general clean-up of household/yard items, but cannot include hazardous goods such as paint, etc. Weight restrictions do apply so please be mindful of the size and weight of the items you wish to dispose of.

Big Valley’s Composting Program will continue to run every Tuesday until the fall. Please remember all compost must be put into clear bags and cannot contain household garbage or animal waste. Unfortunately, until further notice, twigs and branches WILL NOT be picked up. Landfills are no longer taking burnables due to the province wide fire ban.

The Big Valley Royal Purple will be holding a Seniors’ Luncheon at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, Jun. 1 at the Big Valley Community Hall. Everyone 60+ is welcome.
