How will we
remember November? Remembrance Day,
provincial volleyball, report cards, student-led conferences, and the Book Fair
were all highlights of the third month of school.
The annual Remembrance Day program
was held November 10 for staff, students, family and friends. After the RCMP and Royal Canadian Legion
members paraded into the gym, a Legion member gave a talk about the Legion. Classroom tributes included songs, poems,
multimedia presentations, and readings. Pastor Kevin provided the ministerial
prayer, then wreaths were laid on behalf of the Legion, the L.E.S. staff and
Provincial volleyball came to L.E.S.
November 18 and 19 as the school gym was used for many exciting games. The L.C.H.S. girls' volleyball team was
coached by our own Lindi Stroeder. She
and the team are to be congratulated for an amazing run - we are all proud of how you played! L.E.S. was happy to be involved in such a big
sporting event and it was great to see all the community support.
Teachers spent much of November
working on report cards which were handed out November 21. Student-led conferences were held November 23
and 24. During these evenings, students
shared their work and set goals for the next term.
Mrs. Hollman and her crew of
“Book-aneers” really had the library in ship-shape for the pirate-themed Book
Fair. There was a wide selection of
Scholastic loot to purchase and for some real fun and games, rough and hardy
souls could even walk the plank!
