June 2016 Newsletter

A Message from the Office

It is hard to believe how quickly the school year has passed and is coming to an end. It has been a wonderful year - what a school! Together we’ve learned so much and shared experiences that will remain in our memories for years to come.

In June, we reflect upon so many wonderful experiences we have had working and learning together and to be thankful for. I am grateful for the support, generosity and warmth of our students, staff and the Land O' Lakes community. Thank you to all of you who contributed in so many ways. To our parents for all of your work helping get your children ready for school in the morning; packing healthy lunches; and making sure homework and reading gets accomplished and turned in. To our staff for providing rich and engaging, well-rounded experiences for your children and knowing that education is about joy, wonder and fostering curiosity, along with the development of social skills needed for success.

With only a couple weeks to go, I hope to connect with many of you before the summer begins whether at our graduation ceremony, awards assembly or the school picnic. In any event, I hope that the summer break finds you with time to relax, play and enjoy your children. Have a safe and happy summer! See you in September!

Every student from grades 3-8 joined in the activities. Students received ribbons for 1st to 4th place finished, and everyone received participant ribbons. Events included running, jumping and throwing! Many students with top finishes have been invited to compete at the Division 4 Track Meet held on June 7th at the Invista Centre.

A special thank you to our high school students, volunteers and all of our staff who helped make the day a great one!
