Air Quality Flag Program

 From Jan 7th to March 6th, Peden Hill will be participating in the Air Quality Flag Program.  The Air Quality Flag Program is the first of its kind in Canada and is being offered at a select number of BC elementary schools. Participating takes a few minutes each day and encourages students, staff and parents to think more about air, its connection to health, and how to be better stewards of air. Watch for Peden Hill to fly a coloured flag to tell our school and community what kind of air day it is.  You can also visit  http://www.airqualityflags.ca/schools/peden-hill-elementary/
