Family Literacy Activity Ideas:
- Plan a Day Trip - Go online together to find fun (and free) places to go in your city
- Pop-Up Kitchen - Follow a recipe together - a yummy way to practice math and reading
- Weekend Hike - Enjoy the great outdoors and learn about nature - why not make it a scavenger hunt
- Reverso Story - Tell your favourite story, backwards - start with the ending. Can your family guess the story?
- Tell it 2 me - Write a secret message with numbers and do math to solve it

Attention Grade 6 Students and Parents
The Limestone District School Board's Choices at Seven programs offer opportunities for students entering Grade 7 to participate in a variety of unique learning environments. Depending on the availability of places in the programs, students currently in Grade 7 may also apply to join a program for their Grade 8 year.

Online Payments Coming Soon!
Online payments coming soon!
Our school is one of several schools to launch a new secure online portal that will allow families to complete payments and permission forms online. Parents and guardians will be invited via email to view their student’s school-related events such as field trips, sporting events or yearbook purchases. Parents/guardians will then be asked to complete the required permissions (if applicable) and complete payment via credit card or electronic funds transfer from their bank account. Instructions on how to register for this new system will be shared once the system goes live in March. This new portal will remove the risks associated with sending money to school with students, the frustration of lost or missing permission forms, and significantly reduce the amount of paper our school consumes. We look forward to sharing more information with you soon.
