Morley Elementary School is located in Burnaby, B.C. We have approximately 340 students representing more than 25 spoken languages. We actively live by our motto of "safe, welcome and responsible" as we interact on a daily basis. Our aim is to empower all learners to achieve their personal best.
We've made it through the coldest part of the year and have great memories of playing in the snow. Hopefully we'll now make great memories in the sun :) Highlights for March include our Primary days of music, a presentation from our Rock School, second term report cards and the start of painting for our school mural. We've also chosen a new mascot and look forward to offering clothing with our mascot for sale so families can show their pride in our school.
Registration and planning for Kindergarten students starting in September 2014 has begun. If you have a child that was born in 2009 please come by and register as soon as possible. More information is available from our district registration information site. Morley also has a Burnaby Family Life Daycare, Preschool and Before and After School Care center.

Our New Logo!
Burnaby Parks and Rec have a variety of programs available for students at the newly opened Edmonds Community center as well as after school programs right here at Morley. For more information on Morley programs and to register go to the online registration and select Children then select Morley as the location.
Morley has a new logo! Last year we asked students, staff and parents to come up with three words to describe the ideal Morley student and our motto of "Safe, Welcome, Responsible" is based on the overwhelming choice of all. This year we have updated our logo to visually reflect our motto. After presenting a variety of options to students, staff and parents, the logo above was chosen. Thank you students, staff and parents for your input.
Online Payment for Hot Lunch and Young People's Concerts: Starting this year, parents who are paying the full amount for hot lunch will be able to do so online. We will also be providing the same service for our Intermediate students attending Young People's Concerts. If you are needing to make financial arrangements for partial payment of Hot Lunch, please return the Hot Lunch Envelope with your payment. For arrangements for Young People's Concert please see your child's classroom teacher.
