“If you plan to learn, you learn to plan”

Welcome back to a brand new year of learning, Auguston ARROWS! Students at Auguston are called the Arrows and each of the letters stands for an important virtue.

A = Ambitious
R = Respect
R = Responsibility
O = Order
W = Wise
S – Safe

In September 2000 Auguston Traditional Elementary School opened its doors and became the second traditional elementary school in the Abbotsford School District. As a traditional school, Auguston operates within the Public School System, and follows the prescribed curriculum and regulations of the British Columbia Ministry of Education. In 2019-20, Auguston Traditional will no longer be a school of "choice".  Due to enrollment pressures, we will move forward as a catchment school where no Lottery system will be in place.   We are now officially a feeder to Clayburn Middle School.  Regardless of this change, as a traditional school, we will have a strong emphasis on ensuring:

  • a consistent, structured approach to instruction
  • a clearly defined standard of academic achievement
  • a clearly defined standard of behaviour

We hope as a school community, we can make your child’s school year at Auguston Traditional Elementary School a rich and rewarding experience for all of our educational partners.
