Laurier Tree Standing Tall and Proud!
Dear Laurier Families,
The bright and warm May days are bringing sunshine and the opportunity of more outdoor activities! May and June are typically busier months at Laurier. With the warm weather, we get out and explore, while we also prepare for our year-end celebratory activities to highlight this year’s accomplishments.
Warm Weather/Appropriate Dress
As the Weather warms up, our students will come to school in comfortable and appropriate outfits for the weather. Please remember to send your child to school with a hat and sunscreen on sunny, warm days. A bottle of water will help your child to hydrate throughout the day. Flip-flops are discouraged for safety. Thank you for your support!
Sun Awareness A reminder by the Canadian Dermatology Association to:
SLIP on a SHIRT (long sleeve)
SLAP on a HAT (wide brimmed)
SLOP on some SUN SCREEN (SPF 15 or more)
WEAR your SUNGLASSES (100% UV protection)
BEWARE of the SUN from 10:00 am to 3:00pm
MOVING? Let us know!
Are you returning in September 2023? If you are not returning to Laurier in September 2023 and have not yet informed us, please let the Office know immediately as this may affect class size and composition for the next school year.
Change of Address or Phone Number?
Please inform the Office if you have changed your address or telephone number. For safety and enrolment purposes, it is very important that the school office has this information.
Sports Day @Laurier!
Friday, May 19 is Sports Day at Laurier! This annual tradition will include relay games and many sports activities for every student as well as a large game of tug-o-war. It is a full day of school and hot lunch has been cancelled for the day. Please ensure your child has a labelled and reusable water bottle, enough snacks, and a nutritious lunch to help them stay energized for this busy day. Please help your child come to school dress comfortably and for the weather on Sports Day.
Thank you to our PAC for generously providing treats to our students at the end of the day and lunch to our volunteer students from Churchill. Thank you to our teacher candidates, Ms. Sarah Dhaliwal, Ms. Moca Nimmervoll and Ms. Amy Cave along with Ms. Sprintzios, Ms. Lee and Ms. Wong for planning this exiting and fun-filled day for our students.
