FAMILY DANCE PARTY – RECAP

Thank you to all of the families that came to the Dance Party last Thursday to end the year on a high note! 

A special thank you to all of our event volunteers for helping make this event run smoothly again this year!

END OF YEAR COUNCIL RECAP – THANK YOU!

As we close out this school year and prepare for all sorts of fun filled summer plans we would like to take a moment to thank everyone for their participation in our school community this year. You came out to council meetings, joined and led committees, brought in hot lunches, pizza and snacks, helped with communications, fundraising and safety issues, volunteered at events such as the silent auction, the dance and everything in between. It could not have been done without the group effort!

This year we brought in a hot lunch program, streamlined our pizza lunches, brought in new extra-curricular programs, continued planning our new school yard, created a Health and Safety team, created a new blog for our communications, rallied to advocate for our school and teachers, ran a series of parenting workshops and hosted a kindergarten tea. We also raised money to support the new FabLab maker space, to buy new sports jerseys and various sets of new dictionaries and a colour printer for the school, among other things. All in all, not a bad year considering that we were also navigating working with new leadership at the school and endless renovations (windows, abatement, construction on Spadina). Well done team!

We would also like take this opportunity to say goodbye to all the families that have children who are graduating this year or who are moving to new schools in September. You will be missed.

HOT LUNCH REMINDER

This is a reminder that for the hot lunch Tuesdays & Thursdays, your child/children do need to bring in a leak proof container & fork. There has been an increase of children not bringing in a container. Our lunch provider, Rose Reisman will not be able to provide them with a plate and cutlery as it goes against our schools no waste policy.

A Few Reminders – Pep Rally, Play Day & More

PEP RALLY RAPTOR DAY TOMORROW:
A quick reminder that tomorrow we will be holding another pep rally day to pump up for the Basketball Game. See this post for more details. Below are some photos from last week before game 1 festivities.

PLAY DAY:
Thursday of this week will be Play Your Part Play Day. There will be water play, races, OPAL play, parachute, basketball and more! Students will get to choose where and when they play but there will be a special prize for those who complete 4 or more activities on their passport. Students can bring a $1 or $2 donation for Right to Play to get an extra stamp on their passport. Students should bring a change of clothes or shoes on Thursday if they plan to get wet in the water stations.
Kindergarten classes will play 10:30 – 11:30 am before lunch. All grades 1-6 will play from 1-3pm in the afternoon. Looking forward to a wonderful day of play!

INSTAGRAM:
If you haven’t already, please consider following LLPS on social media. As the limitations on data/photo storage on WordPress decrease and with the ease of use of Instagram I’m finding it a simple and quick way to give you snapshots into the wonderful things going on in our school without having to write out an entire blog post every time. 😉
Please check it out, spread the word and follow us at @LL_TDSB 
We often use the hashtags: #LLPS (general) #LLPSLLC (library) #FabLab (makerspace) #tdesaa (sports)

Have a wonderful evening!
