Div. 1: Integration of Art and French: Qui Suis-Je?

Dear Laurier Families,

Our Bike/Walk to school week was as always well embraced by our students and families. This week highlighted the importance of active transportation and healthy living. We are continuing to help our students remain healthy and active by offering them a variety of activities. We ended our track and field season with strong participation and commitment. Once more, many thanks to Ms. Boucher for the countless hours she spent to organize and lead this event and many staff members for coaching and encouraging our students throughout the event. Our Tennis sessions have also been running outdoor on a daily basis in the last couple of weeks and our students learned and practised new skills.

On Thursday, June 1st, we met our new Kindergarten students and their families for the first time during our Welcome to Kindergarten orientation day. It was a joy to meet you all and we hope you enjoyed the stations run by our teachers. We are looking forward to getting to know you more when you formally join Laurier in September. Our special thanks go to the Kindergarten team, Ms. Murphy, Mr. Holdham, Ms. Baxter and Ms. Altman for organizing the day. Thanks to our PAC Chairs, past and present, Bill Martin and Anita Parkinson for representing Laurier PAC and welcoming the youngest members of our community and their families to our school!

Bye May! Hello June!

May was another busy month at Laurier! Here is a highlight of our extra-curricular activities in May: Black History Matters presentations to K-7 students, Sports Day, Tennis sessions for K-7 students, Bike/Walk to School Week, Track and Field, May SOAR Assembly. Our staff continued to participate in lunch and learn sessions working on Novel Studies and Universal Design for Learning. We also had our Hearing Screening for our Kindergarten students and practised our emergency skills during the Big One @2 earthquake drill and a fire drill.

Thank you to our PAC executives for leading the PAC AGM on May 24 and for their ongoing support.
