Bob’s Friday Update – May 13

Hello Laker Families!

Welcome to the weekend!  We have had an excellent week.  The sunshine and warm temperatures have allowed us to move some of our learning outside.  Please ensure your child comes ready for spending time outdoors. Light clothing, a hat, sunscreen and a water bottle will be important items for the next two months.

Field Trips: Classes are now planning field trips.  We want to ensure that all students attend our field trips regardless of ability to pay.  Please talk to your classroom teacher to learn more.

Free Live Tutoring Help: We are excited to announce that TVO Mathify has expanded its FREE 1:1 online math tutoring service to now include Grades 4 and 5. Their tutors are online and ready to offer FREE math help to new and returning students! Learn more:
