An Invitation to Join… The Douglas Park Polar Bear Club (Grade K – 5)

During the winter months, we are required to have recess indoors when the wind chill is -25o C or lower. If students are adequately dressed, they don’t mind this temperature to get outside for a few recesses.  Days spent entirely indoors are long and difficult for many students who enjoy playing outside. It is a great brain break for some fresh air too!

This winter at Douglas Park, we invite students in Grade K - 5 to join the Polar Bear Club.  With parental permission and warm clothing, including hat, mitts, face covering, jacket, snow pants (or two layers of pants) and boots, students will be able to be outdoors at recess to enjoy our winter weather. If students feel too cold while being out, they will be allowed to go in the boot room to warm up for a few minutes. Playground supervision will be in place for all the ‘Polar Bears’ and students who do not wish to participate will remain indoors with supervision as well.

A permission note will be sent home on December 12th. Those who return it to school (with parental permission for theire child to participate in the Polar Bear Club for the Winter of 2016-17), will go outside starting on Dec. 13th. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Frei or Mrs. Duke. Thanks!

Book Swap

Douglas Park School will be having their 2nd Annual Book Swap on January 31st.  Bring any books to school that you would like to trade, starting January 24th - January 31st.  Give the books to your teacher.  The books will be displayed  on January 31st for the student’s selection(s).  They will be able to pick one book for every book that they bring.  

Thank you


Before and After School Program

Dear Parents/Guardians of the Before and After School Program,

Thank you for your continued use of our Before and After School Program operated at Douglas Park School.  We trust you have found this program to be beneficial to your child's development, convenient for your family schedule and provided at a reasonable cost.

In order to ensure the continued viability of the programs, the CommunityAssociation will be raising the program rates effective August 2016.  We will be taking our program in a new direction in the fall and with the closure of our program at St. Andrews, we need to make up for our losses in order to keep our program running.

Starting August 2016, the fees will e $190 for the first child and $140 for each additional child (up to three children in attendance). To ensure you have a spot in the fall, please submit your postdated cheques to Deborah by the end of the school year.

Although we understand such increases provide additional strain on family budgets, such increases are necessary for the continued provision of this program. We feel our programming; even with this increase is still offered at a substantially lower cost than comparable programs in Regina.

We WILL be taking new names on our wait list this coming fall, the easiest way for parents to do that is by emailing us at

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact the Boot Hill Community Association at and we will respond as soon as we are able.

Our kindest regards,

Boot Hill Community Association
