Election Time!

Very soon, October 15 to be precise, it will be election time. We will be electing the people who will  govern our towns (Middleton and Annapolis Royal) and the Municipality of Annapolis County. We will also be electing the Members of our School Board.

It is important that we vote and that we take some time to find out about the people we will be electing. These are the people running to be our School Board Representative:

1.      Susan Ritchie (incumbent - she has been the representative for 12 years), Bobbie Archer, Paul Wear, and  Linus Hannam.

This time, there is only one person running for Municipal Council in District 10, that is one of the districts near our school. Since Ms Roberts is the only one running, there is no need for a voting station to vote. BUT, there is still voting that needs to take place for the School Board so people in District 10 STILL NEED TO VOTE on voting day, October 15th.  The following is a list of communities in District 10: Albany, Albany Cross, Brickton, Cherryfield, Dalhousie, East Dalhousie, East Inglisville, Falkland Ridge, Hastings, Inglisville, Lake Pleasant, Lawrencetown, Springfield, Waterloo Lake, West Inglisville. Make sure you come out and vote for our School Board Representative.

People from District 3 also come to our school, but they will have a voting station for the Municipal Election so it will be easier for them to cast their votes for the School Board election.

A bit confusing, isn't it. The thing to remember is: Everyone should show up on Voting Day, October 15, and vote!

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Dear LCS Families,

We have new students who have life threatening allergies (anaphylaxis) to peanuts  and other nuts and therefore it is essential that we make our school allergy safe. 

In collaboration with the AVRSB School Nurse, we have learned the best way to reduce the risk of accidental exposure of allergens to these students is to respectfully ask for your co-operation as the parents/guardians within our LCS community to:

AVOID SENDING PEANUT BUTTER OR PRODUCTS WITH PEANUTS OR NUTS LISTED IN THE INGREDIENTS, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.

We realize that this request may pose an inconvenience for you when packing your child’s snack or lunch. However, we hope you will appreciate the seriousness of our situation and assist in our efforts to create as safe an environment as possible.  With your cooperation we can minimize the risk of a severe allergic reaction. In addition, our school cafeteria will no longer be selling items that contain nuts, such as peanut butter sandwiches or peanut butter cookies.

Included with this letter is some information about peanut allergies as well as things that you can teach your child in order to protect the health and safety of the students with the potentially life-threatening allergy.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and co-operation as we welcome our new students into our nut aware learning environment!

With warm regards,

Mrs. Shehata, Principal, LCS

As you may know, the Nova Scotia School Insurance Program (SIP) is the non-profit insurer owned by school boards across Nova Scotia.

Since 1988 we have paid for basic student accident insurance for every student in the Province for school hours and activities.

In previous years we sent all schools flyers to give to each student providing parents and guardians the option to purchase the Gold Plan for 24/7 coverage. This year we would like to promote the Gold Plan only online. You can get all the information about this program by visiting their website at:   http://sip.ca/

 

Student Success Plan Goals
2015-2016

- Gr. P-1 Literacy: Develop reading sight word vocabulary accuracy in students and help them to accurately use these words in their written work.

-Math: Develop student understanding of concepts and skills around partitioning of numbers and how to represent them concretely, pictorially, symbolically, orally and in writing.

- Gr. 2-5 Literacy: Increase student reading comprehension focusing on the non-literal and “about and beyond the text” comprehension of the text.

-Math: Increase student  understanding of various forms of patterning and how this assists in overall development of number concepts.

 

 

Parents: Do you or your child have an idea for a Publish It! Riverside Press book? Perhaps you have done something special for March Break or maybe you have seen signs of spring or have a story about Lawrencetown in the past. Almost any idea can become a great book for your child to share with family and friends. Even if you have already made a book, you can make another. There is no charge and you get a copy of your book free. It will take about an hour of your time and you don’t need any typing or computer skills. We will help you every step of the way. Books can be made by grandparents as well!!
For more information or to make an appointment, contact: Angie Carreira, 584-3569.
