About Us

With deep gratitude and respect, we are honoured to be learning and unlearning on the ancestral and unceded lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) & səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation).

Simon Fraser is small, vibrant, inclusive community centrally located in the Mount Pleasant, City Hall area. We have 15 divisions housed in a one level main building and four portables. This year we will start the year with about 350 students from various backgrounds and socio-economic levels.

We continue to work towards the goals of our School Code of Conduct which states: “Be Safe, Be Kind, be Fair.” We build on a foundation of respect. Many of the staff have been here several years and have built positive relationships with students and community. Our staff are passionate and committed to the growth of all learners. The shared commitment and willingness to collaborate is allowing staff to focus our effort on student growth. New strategies and practices to support development of literacy, numeracy and social emotional skills have been adopted and embedded into practice.

The parent community plays a significant role. Besides the formal roles of the PAC, parents contribute to the positive culture while enhancing the school experience for students. Parents are passionate about organizing fundraising events and supporting school community building events: hot lunches, theme days, Halloween Pumpkin Patch, and Spring Fling to name a few. This year the PAC also arranged to support several other opportunities: Red Cross First Aid and Baby-sitting courses & DPAC Choir.

Students participate in various extra-curricular opportunities made possible by staff and parent volunteers: cross country, volleyball, basketball, track and field, gardening, chess club, ukulele club, grade 3 Girls Math Group, community walks and many different fieldtrips. Though we are still working on providing more opportunities to build leadership capacity, many students contribute to the school culture while building their own leadership skills through daily morning announcers, the Social Justice Club, library helpers, chess club helpers, reading buddies, plant/garden care, and recycling.
