​Welcome to the Hatzic School Community!

            Welcome to Hatzic Elementary where students, staff and parents work together to achieve our goals of Literacy, Numeracy, Healthy Lifestyles and Fine Arts in a safe and caring environment with academic success for every child.  We believe that every child, parent and staff member has a vital role in achieving these important goals. We appreciate your involvement and are pleased to be working together with you to meet your child’s unique needs. 

At Hatzic Elementary we are very fortunate to have a highly supportive parent community and we appreciate all the work they do to support our school climate, extra-curricular activities and the learning environment.  We are eager to encourage involvement, whether it be with the Parent Advisory Council, as a volunteer, as a helping parent, or by simply keeping in close communication with your child’s teacher.  Parental involvement and effective communication are essential for your child’s success and we encourage all parents to be partners with us in your child’s education.

The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time for setting personal goals with your child. High expectations for children, in a supportive environment, with adults who love them will lead to more confident and capable students who enjoy trying their best. Remember at Hatzic Elementary, Home of the Huskies, we believe that “effort makes a difference”.

We are delighted to have your child attend our school and I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child over the course of their Hatzic years.  At any time during the school year, if you have a question or concern, please contact me by phone at (604) 826-2481, by e-mail at, or stop by the office, my door is always open.
