Walk/Bike to School Week @Laurier!

Dear Laurier Families,

As we are approaching the month of June, we are starting to feel the soon to be summer with the amazing sunny and beautiful days that we are experiencing almost every day these last few weeks! The entire staff is busy with the year-end assessment of students, organizing extra-curricular activities and field trips, the Welcome to Kindergarten event on June 1st and our Grade 7 Moving Forward Ceremony on June 26th. Lots to achieve and celebrate!

Bike/Walk/Scooter Week to School @Laurier!

Our Walk/Bike to School Week will take place May 29th-June 2nd! We are encouraging all students to bike and/or wheel or walk to school throughout the week. This week is about highlighting the importance of active transportation and healthy living. Many thanks to Ms. Magdee for helping with this event. All students who come to school biking or scootering should wear a helmet. Due to a grant that we received, as well as our PAC's generous support, we have been able to purchase many great items that we will award each day to a number of students who bike/walk/scooter to school. Let's see whose name will be drawn from our basket of participants!

Visitors to School

Just a reminder that all visitors to school are asked to go to the office when coming to Laurier. If you are bringing food or school materials for your child, please drop them off at the office and we will make sure they are delivered to your child. If you are here earlier to pick up your child, please sign them out at the office and we will ask your child to go to the office, while you are waiting for them. Please do not go directly to your child's classroom or the playground looking for them. Other students may feel unsafe and you will be approached by outside supervisors or staff members for clarification. Visitors to school wear visitor badges. We appreciate your collaboration to keep our students safe throughout the school hours.
