Bob’s Monday Update

Hello Laker Families,

We have not had an update in a while as I have been away from school. Knowing that we have an amazing professional staff gave me such peace of mind during my absence.  Thank you to all who stepped up and went above and beyond.

A huge shout out to Mme. Lepine and Mme. Clark for organizing and leading a fantastic Winter Carnival. The students and staff had a blast! Thank you to everyone involved who made the day so successful.

Thank you to everyone who supported our Noonan’s Syndrome Awareness Day by either wearing Red and Blue or ordering a sub for lunch.  We raised $531.55 which will be donated to Sick Children’s Hospital in Toronto.

Our amazing School Council has a new Fundraiser for our Technology Fund.  We have teamed up with plantables.ca.  Please see this flyer if you are interested in buying some plants for your gardens this year. While the deadline to order is May 31st, you are able to choose the delivery window when you want your plants to be sent to you.  Check it out at plantables.ca. Use the code bpssmartyplants and dream of spring!
