A Message from the Principal


On behalf of the staff at LCS, I am pleased to welcome you to the 2017 - 18 school year! We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and filling the school with energy and enthusiasm for learning. At LCS, we strive to challenge each student to grow in their academic abilities and to become responsible, caring citizens.

Every year our school team works collaboratively to create goals aimed at improving student achievement. This year our Student Success Plan Goals are as follows:

  • Gr. P-5 Math: Increase student understanding of geometric shapes and the relationships between them.
  • Gr. P-5 Literacy: Increase student reading comprehension focusing on the non-literal and “about and beyond the text” questions.
  • RCH Goal: To clearly define culturally responsive teaching and implement those strategies in our classrooms.

Since opening its doors in 1975, Lawrencetown Consolidated School has had a proud tradition of partnering with the School Advisory Council (SAC) to provide students with a variety of academic and extra-curricular activities. Parents/Guardians are always invited to attend the monthly meetings. You can find the dates of upcoming SAC meetings in each monthly newsletter. Another way to get involved is to become a school volunteer. We are always looking for support with many school initiatives such as the Breakfast Program, the cafeteria, chaperoning field trips, the annual Breakfast with Santa and the Spring Bingo.

At LCS, we believe that effective communication is essential in creating strong home/school connections for student success. In order to keep all families informed of our school happenings we have an electronic Alert System that will send out text messages and/or emails, a monthly school newsletter, classroom newsletters and a school website.

It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where parents, staff, community members and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please feel free to contact me at 902-584-4500 or paula.shehata@avrsb.ca should you have any celebrations, questions or concerns to share.

Once again, welcome to LCS! I look forward to working together!

Sincerely,
Paula Shehata
Principal
