Arbutus has a long history of involvement in local and school athletics. For the 2017-2018 school year, the athletic coordinators for all of Arbutus Global Middle School’s many teams are Clay Howe and Alex Lemon. Parents and community members who are interested in coaching or participating in Arbutus athletics may contact Clay or Alex by telephoning the school or by emailing directly.
At the beginning of each sport season, your child will come home with a schedule of games and player agreement. Please have your child return the signed agreement as soon as they receive it.
Daily Physical Activity
The BC Ministry of Education has begun an initiative to keep BC’s students active and healthy. Arbutus Global embraces this and encourages students to be active on a daily basis. As each student will have to evaluate his or her own participation to include on the report card, this link is to a wonderful tool that helps students do that! All a student requires is a Personal Education Number, which is available from the teacher or at the office.
Announcements are made over the PA daily about sports opportunities, games and practices. We also have a sports board outside the office that is updated regularly advising students and parents of various schedules and games.
