New frontiers for new learning

From the Office October 2016 Dear LJPS Families, A month of school is already behind us.  We have been very active at LJPS – the cross country team is up and running! Our Intermediate student leadership team is busy at work planning out events and assemblies for our school community. They have started planning for our Halloween later this month.  As well, our Homework Club is open 4 days a week, from Monday to Thursday and our Early Act Club is meeting with Ms. Pizzolon to plan out community events. Later this month we will be celebrating our diversity by recognizing Diwali. We will be selling samosas and offering Mendhi to students to celebrate with our community the festival of lights. The staff at LJPS remain committed to supporting overall well-being and student achievement, providing worthwhile activities for our students  not only during instructional time but also before and after school.  We had a reorganization of our primary division classes – we eliminated one class and created several combined grade classes. Unfortunately we had to say good bye to Ms. Bomba. Later this month we will be having Halloween celebrations here at the school.  Teachers will send home reminders about the events that will take place on October 31 at school.  Our Student Leadership team is planning a haunted house for the students as well there will be an Intermediate dance in the afternoon.  Our Kinders will have the opportunity to parade in the school in their Halloween costumes. Costumes are optional for all students. We ask that you do not send food or candy treats to school as many of our students have food allergies.  Our Intermediate leadership team is also planning a fun and spooky evening. LJPS’ Halloween Haunt will take place on October 27. Students are invited to come dressed in costume and trick or treat as we convert our hallways into a haunted alleyway. Tickets for this event will be sold next week. EQAO scores were released recently – individual student results will be sent home this week.  Please ensure that you have had the opportunity to review these if your child wrote the assessment last spring.  This week is safety week—students will practice a lockdown; fire drills and a hold and secure. These drills help us to keep everyone at LJPS safe in the event of an emergency. We look forward to seeing you all at Curriculum Night. Angelina Faraone  Principal
