If your child is currently attending one of our feeder schools ie: David Cameron, John Stubbs(FI), Lakewood, Millstream, Ruth King, Savory or Willway, you do NOT need to register for Gr 6 on-line.  Your child will automatically be transferred to Spencer unless you let us and your current school know other wise.

Please register your child for Spencer Middle at:  http://www.sd62.bc.ca/parents/registration/

Please see the registration blog that outlines the process for requesting a School Change Request online at:


Parents can request a school change on-line on this direct link:


Speaking of next year, here is the current thoughts on our specialty programs…

Our current thought is that Percussion 8 will be offered in the timetable.

Band 7/8 will be offered after school.

We will continue to offer a Dance 7 and 8 class. Auditions will be held later on this year. (Those students who are currently doing well in Dance 7 will not need to audition.)

Currently we are entertaining the idea of the Hockey Academy classes “straddling” the timetable next year. What this means is that the morning sessions will begin at 8am and the afternoon sessions will end at 4pm. With lower numbers in both grades 7 and 8 next year, we will be combining the classes into a 7/8 Hockey Academy.


Please see the attachment below regarding School Bus Update…the link to do registration TBA.

2016-17 Bus registration & fees

**Langford by-law enforcement has asked us to remind parents picking up their children after school, to please park in designated spaces in front of the school, along Carlow or on other nearby side streets. Please also observe signage in our parking lot – the double lanes in our parking lot closest to the street are for very quick drop off/pick-ups and drive-throughs (one for each purpose). The lane closest to the school is for busses only.

The Royal Bay PAC elections for the positions of President and Treasurer will be held at our next meeting. We would like to extend an invitation to all Spencer parents who have a child going to Royal Bay next year. We are a non-fundraising PAC, and we meet once a month for an hour. Please join us on Wednesday, May 4 at 6:30 in the Learning Commons at Royal Bay to elect the president and treasurer for the 2016/2017 school year. All other positions will be elected in September at the AGM. Hope to see you there! 

On behalf of the Spencer Staff, have a beautiful day!

Terry Honer

Principal, Spencer Middle School
