Orange Shirt Day
LSS will be participating in Orange Shirt Day on Wednesday, September 30th, to honour the survivors of the Indian Residential School System and remember those who did not. The reason we wear orange is based on the real life story of Phyllis, a survivor of St. Joseph’s Mission School in Williams Lake, BC, whose brand new orange shirt was taken from her on her first day when she was just a little girl. Please wear orange on Wednesday.
The students that have signed up for golf, there is a meeting today at break time in room 225
Grade 12 Study Area
The Grade 12 study area is now closed during class time due to vandalism. It will be open at mid-day break.
And now for today’s Dad joke
Why do chicken coops only have two doors? Because if they had four, they would be chicken sedans!
We will be welcoming our Grade 12 students on Monday, Grade 11 students on Tuesday, Grade 10 students on Wednesday, Grade 9 students on Thursday, and Grade 8 students on Friday in order to meet VIHA COVID 19 guidelines.
I am sitting here at my hallway desk reflecting on this past week. So pleased on how students are wearing masks, staying in classes and I’m also enjoying having students check in with me. LSS has had a great start and it feels good.
Reporting As you know we are working in a Quarter system for this year. What will report cards look like? Please check the attached document to learn how teachers will communicate with you about your child’s learning.
Cafeteria We are open for business starting Monday but there are some changes.
You have to preorder the day before in the MPR. No food is sold the day of.
Your order will be delivered to your morning class where lunch is eaten
You can purchase food cards through online cash system $45 bucks gets you a $50 card but you can still use cash if you want to. See below on how to use School Cash Online.
Menu is on the LSS website under Areas of Learning – Cafeteria
PAC We have a PAC executive. Huge shout out to the new executive. PAC meetings will be on Zoom and will be the third Tuesday of the month (in most cases) at 6:30 pm. Don’t worry I will remind you and send out a link for you to join. If you have any 49th parallel receipts send them with your kids and have them drop them off in the Receipt box in front of the office. It is a very simple way to help fundraise.
Yearbooks We are expecting to have the 2019-20 yearbooks in by the end of next week. Once they are in, I will send out an email to all. If you are interested in helping with the Yearbook for this year see Mr. Bennett – he would love the help.
LSS is stepping into the 2000s by going electronic with permission forms
Please Sign Forms Online
As another method for reducing transmission, we are also asking that you use the School Cash Online system to electronically sign school forms. The first electronic form we have created is a mandatory measure put in place by the Province of B.C. and the Provincial Health Office. The daily health check form and other consent and permission forms that relate to your child(ren) will be accessible online (as they become available) for electronic signature, in lieu of students bringing home paper forms.
Paying and Signing Forms Online is Fast and Easy
Paying school fees and signing school forms online is fast and easy and can be done from any computer or smartphone.
