Welcome to Winter - November Update

We forged through moving into our new building and Halloween on a Monday!  We were excited to open the doors to Lakeshore School and finally welcome you to our new building.  The grade 5 team would also like to welcome 4 student teachers from St. Mary’s University: Kyle Smith (paired with Mrs. Quraishi), Jessie Olson (paired with Mr. Polsky), Christine Eastham (paired with Ms. Shoults), and Riley MacDonald (paired with Ms. Hamilton). They will be with us till mid-December and are very keen and excited to work with the grade 5s.  Here’s what’s coming in November!

Great Beginnings - October Update

We did it! We survived the first month! September has been a great month with many events and activities. Not only that but NHL hockey is back, the Blue Jays are in the playoffs and the Giants have actually won a football game - incredible! How amazing is September :) Seriously though, thank you all for joining us at the open house two weeks ago. It was a great success and so fantastic to meet our parent community. I’m looking forward to meeting the rest of you when we move into the new school - hopefully soon!!! Here’s a run down on what we’re up to and what you can look forward to over the next couple...

Go Flames Go - May Update

The force is strong in you… indeed. Happy Star Wars Day! More importantly… The Flames are in the playoffs and the vibe is GOOOOOOD. We’re a full wagon of a team and I can’t wait for a long playoff run. GO FLAMES GO. That said, we’re flying here in grade five with all kinds of things happening. We survived Outdoor School and I think we’ve all recovered from the lack of sleep. Here’s what we have coming up this month in the wild world of grade five.

New Year, New You(ish) - January Update

Happy Friday! We made it through the first week post winter break and I think everyone was really, really excited to be back.

That said, a genuine and full thank you for ensuring that your child has been coming to school all masked up and healthy.
