Get out all the special hair products and go wild!  Our Peer Helpers are sponsoring Crazy Hair Day on November 29th.  How crazy can you get?  Looking forward to seeing all the wackiness.


Safe Arrival is a PAC run initiative, organized by our wonderful volunteers.  Unfortunately, PAC is no longer able to maintain this program due to challenges with getting enough volunteers.   From now on, if your child is going to be absent please call the school line at 250 478 0576 instead of the Safe Arrival line.

Thank you so much to the amazing people who have volunteered their time for years running this program.

There will be a district-wide early dismissal day on November 23rd.  This day is set aside for parent teacher interviews.   However, at Crystal View we did our interviews early in October so we could meet all of our parents sooner in the year. Our teachers didn’t have an early dismissal break that day but worked straight through to 7:30.  A long day but it was wonderful to make all those connections!  Even though we did the interviews early please remember there will still be an early dismissal on Nov. 23rd at 11:36.


We will be acknowledging this important day on November 10th.  Please feel free to join us as we remember those who have given so much to ensure that we have the opportunity to live in freedom and safety.   November 13th school will not be session.

Dear parents,

Thank you for joining us for Parent Teacher Interviews.  It was wonderful to meet all of you.  Your children were so happy to share their learning with you and celebrate their growth.

The Book Fair has been a huge success.  Thank you for your support.  We will let you know how much was raised for our library next week.

Next week is our PAC sponsored Halloween Dance.  This is a fun family event and we look forward to seeing everyone out in their ghoulish splendor!

Take care,



Dear Parents:

Monday, October 23rd is Drop Everything and Read Day (DEAR). We will be reading as a whole school at 12:45. Students are invited to bring their favourite books to school, find a cozy spot and read! Students can bring a blanket, a stuffie, or even wear their jammies! Our generous PAC will be providing popcorn for each classroom as a special treat. Let’s get reading!

Welcome to Crystal View Elementary!

A new school year is about to begin and we are ready!  Although it is hard to think that summer is coming to an end, we are happily preparing for another year of learning adventures. We are looking forward to meeting you all on September 5th, 2017, with Kindergarten students starting on September 11th.  There will be many familiar faces and some new ones as well.  Together we will build an engaging, supportive, safe and FUN school community!

Our beautiful school is located at 2662 Silverstone Way in Langford and this year we enroll students in Kindergarten through Grade 5. We have approximately 40 staff who work with our students. Our learning community also includes approximately 248 students residing in a growing catchment which is inclusive of Langford and Belmont Park.  We are fortunate to have an active Parent Advisory Council and we appreciate the supportive involvement of all parents and our community.

Please make sure to check the website regularly if you are one of our families.  We will work diligently to keep it updated with dates, events, celebrations and maybe even a picture or two.

This is my first year at Crystal View and in the short time I have been here I have already seen that the building is full of dedicated educators and that it is absolutely a great place to learn!

Enjoy the last few days of summer vacation with your children and your families.  The weather continues to be extraordinary.  We will see you soon.

Take care,

Ms. Karen DeCicco
