Happy Easter, Happy Pesach

LEP Families,

Thank you for participating in our parent-teacher conferences last week. If you weren't able to attend please feel free to reach out to teachers for an update on your child's progress. Believe it or not, we are almost at mid-term reporting time! Students have been working hard, and are looking forward to this much deserved long weekend, and upcoming spring break.

To those who are celebrating, Happy Easter and Happy Pesach.

Wishing you a safe and restful holiday.

Looks Like Teen Spirit!

Thanks to the LEP Student Council for organizing our last Spirit Week.

Robotics Student Advances to Provincial Championship Level

Congratulations Tyler!

Tyler Smith is one of ten students from across the province to be selected as FiIRST Robotics Dean's List Semi-Finalist who will be moving on to the Provincial Championship level. This achievement recognizes Tyler's significant contribution to FIRST Robotics in the community, and of course, our school! This is very noteworthy, as Lo-Ellen Park has only had one other student in the history of our team receive this honour.

The staff and students are very excited about this accomplishment and are wishing Tyler luck in the next stage of the competition.

Civics Lessons about Government

Ms. Connor's Civics students were asked to be creative and find objects from home to create a visual way to represent the types of government that they have been learning about. The results are very clever! Can you guess what types of government the images depict?

Phys. Ed. Students Participate in OFSAA Virtual Seminars!

Physical and Health Education classes have participated in several OFSAA Student Virtual Seminars.

Leadership students listened to Tabia Charles-Collins discuss attributes of an effective leader and various leadership styles. Tabia represented Canada in the 2008 Summer Olympics. She was a Canadian record holder in both long jump and triple jump.

Yoga students were pleased to see Elizabeth Manley share her struggles with anxiety and depression as she pursued her Olympic dreams in the 1980s--a time when mental health resources were limited.

Our Physical and Health Education students also engaged in webinars with Ian Tyson speaking about Integrity and strategies for positive self talk and gratitude. As well, we were fortunate to hear testimonial from Kaleb Dahlgren, a survivor of the Humboltd Broncos bus crash. Kaleb discussed resilience and how he is moving forward after the accident.

Thanks to OFSAA for arranging these great guest speakers.

Graduation Plans

We are looking forward to honouring our grade 12 graduating class on Friday, June 18th. We are still in the planning stages, and of course these plans will prioritize the health and safety of our school community. That said, the guidance team will be meeting with graduates to discuss the day in the very near future.

Stay tuned for the Save the Date announcement for our grade 8 graduates.
