Breakfast with Santa has come and gone for another year and we owe a huge debt of gratitude to many people for making it a success once again. Thanks to the volunteers, some of whom worked from September to make things work. Thanks to the businesses and individuals who so graciously donated items for the Breakfast and for the Ticket Auction. Thanks to all the people who came to share in the experience of Breakfast with Santa. We feel this was our largest event ever!

Special thanks to our friends from Scotiabank who volunteered their time on the 26th and who will be making a generous donation to LCS in the near future. Your support is greatly appreciated.

We raised over $6,000.00 to support programs at LCS. It is wonderful that our small school continues to have the support of so many.

 

There are SIX presentations coming up over the next few weeks. They are brought to you by the Annapolis RCMP Seniors Safety Program and supported by the Seniors Safety Grant from the NS Departments of Seniors and Justice. Sessions are open and of interest to all.

For more information check out the information sheet.

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Dear LCS Families,

We have new students who have life threatening allergies (anaphylaxis) to peanuts  and other nuts and therefore it is essential that we make our school allergy safe. 

In collaboration with the AVRSB School Nurse, we have learned the best way to reduce the risk of accidental exposure of allergens to these students is to respectfully ask for your co-operation as the parents/guardians within our LCS community to:

AVOID SENDING PEANUT BUTTER OR PRODUCTS WITH PEANUTS OR NUTS LISTED IN THE INGREDIENTS, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.

We realize that this request may pose an inconvenience for you when packing your child’s snack or lunch. However, we hope you will appreciate the seriousness of our situation and assist in our efforts to create as safe an environment as possible.  With your cooperation we can minimize the risk of a severe allergic reaction. In addition, our school cafeteria will no longer be selling items that contain nuts, such as peanut butter sandwiches or peanut butter cookies.

Included with this letter is some information about peanut allergies as well as things that you can teach your child in order to protect the health and safety of the students with the potentially life-threatening allergy.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and co-operation as we welcome our new students into our nut aware learning environment!

With warm regards,

Mrs. Shehata, Principal, LCS

As you may know, the Nova Scotia School Insurance Program (SIP) is the non-profit insurer owned by school boards across Nova Scotia.

Since 1988 we have paid for basic student accident insurance for every student in the Province for school hours and activities.

In previous years we sent all schools flyers to give to each student providing parents and guardians the option to purchase the Gold Plan for 24/7 coverage. This year we would like to promote the Gold Plan only online. You can get all the information about this program by visiting their website at:   http://sip.ca/

 

Student Success Plan Goals
2015-2016

- Gr. P-1 Literacy: Develop reading sight word vocabulary accuracy in students and help them to accurately use these words in their written work.

-Math: Develop student understanding of concepts and skills around partitioning of numbers and how to represent them concretely, pictorially, symbolically, orally and in writing.

- Gr. 2-5 Literacy: Increase student reading comprehension focusing on the non-literal and “about and beyond the text” comprehension of the text.

-Math: Increase student  understanding of various forms of patterning and how this assists in overall development of number concepts.

 

 

Parents: Do you or your child have an idea for a Publish It! Riverside Press book? Perhaps you have done something special for March Break or maybe you have seen signs of spring or have a story about Lawrencetown in the past. Almost any idea can become a great book for your child to share with family and friends. Even if you have already made a book, you can make another. There is no charge and you get a copy of your book free. It will take about an hour of your time and you don’t need any typing or computer skills. We will help you every step of the way. Books can be made by grandparents as well!!
For more information or to make an appointment, contact: Angie Carreira, 584-3569.
