Welcome to Cherry Hill Elementary School in Mission, British Columbia, Canada. Mission is in the Fraser River Valley about an hour from Vancouver BC. We are a full service school offering grades K to 6. Our school is an inclusive school with a diverse population. We offer a strong academic program combined with fine arts and athletics for all students.
The Mission School District International Student Program is currently looking for nurturing host families to provide a welcoming “home away from home” for our visiting elementary and secondary students. These paid positions are a wonderful opportunity to share your heart and your home as well as our great Canadian culture with young visitors from around the world. Student placements range from 2 weeks to 2 years or more.
We invite you to complete our On-line Application Form to become a host family and be a part of our exciting International Student program. Please complete all 5 sections of the On-line Application Form and we will be happy to contact you for a follow up home visit.

Last year it was time for our school to begin to perform a regular review of the school codes of conduct and citizenship. We put together a draft of some revisions and submitted it to PAC for consideration and advice. As the new year begins staff and student leaders will be asked again to go over the proposals and offer their advice on the proposed changes. A draft of the revisions was sent home in our last October newsletter. The proposed revisions can be accessed through the links below. The draft revisions should be reviewed by PAC in September or early October and the final revisions ready for confirmation by October or November's PAC meetings.
