Sports Day @Laurier!
Dear Laurier Families,
What a beautiful, sunny day we had for our annual Sports Day! Our students had so much fun and they were involved in all activities with enthusiasm. I would like to thank once more our organizing committee: Ms. Sabrina Wong, Ms. Lee, Ms. Sprintzios, and our teacher candidates, Ms. Amy, Ms. Moca, Ms. Liz, Ms. Sarah and Mr. D. for a wonderful day of activities. Thanks to our volunteer students who joined us from Churchill today to run each station. Many thanks to our teachers and staff members for ensuring that the day goes smoothly for our students. Our special thanks to our PAC for the healthy and refreshing treats! Great way to end a busy day!
We are pleased to partner with Tennis BC and offer tennis sessions by skilled coaches to all our K-7 students from May 23rd to June 2nd during school time and as part of our PE curriculum. Laurier tennis courts will be used for these sessions and tennis BC provides our students with rackets. Please ensure that your child comes to school dressed comfortably for this activity, bringing everything they need to remain hydrated and healthy. For days and times that your child’s class is participating in their sessions, please check with your classroom teachers.
