The Golden Garbage Can Award
Lakedell School has a new award that will be presented monthly at our assemblies, the "Golden Garbage Can Award". This award is presented by Mr. Johnson at our assembly to the room that stays cleanest and takes the best care to keep the school clean. The winning room receives a prize and a plaque for their room, as well as the honour of keeping the Golden Garbage Can in their classroom for the month!
The November winner was... Miss Pickering's Grade 1/2 Class!!!
Terry Fox Sponge Throw- Halloween Fun
Students at Lakedell School got into the Halloween spirit and the giving spirit as they dressed up in great costumes and raised over $2000 for the Terry Fox Foundation.
Staff generously donated their faces for the sponge toss and were good sports as students fired hundreds of sponges their way!
New and Exciting Clubs at Lakedell School
The students at Lakedell have asked for more clubs, and we are excited to announce our new "Kindness Club", "Play Leadership Club" as well as upcoming ART, YOGA, LEGO, DANCE and GYM activities. These clubs are courtesy of our HUB Wellness superstar, Mrs. Ganske!
Mrs. Hill has started a Cree Language Club and a Beading Club; and we are finalizing details on a monthly boys Drum Group Club.
In addition, we will be starting up a new AFTER-SCHOOL FLOOR HOCKEY CLUB!!!! Mr. Le, Mrs. Ganske and Mr. Van Someren will be hosting free floor hockey after school on Mondays starting on November 2. Permission forms and information will be sent home and if students are able to arrange for someone to pick them up after school, then they will be welcome to play.
The students and staff at Lakedell are very excited for the new and exciting opportunities in our school!
