Lakecrest Parent Survey

Later this week all Lakecrest parents will receive a link to an online Parent Survey. This survey, prepared by the Strategic Planning Committee of the Board of Directors, will provide opportunities for feedback about Lakecrest. We have recently, in an accreditation report, received feedback from the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools organization. The additional feedback from parents will be equally important in helping to guide the way forward. Teachers, administration, Board of Directors and Home and School association use this feedback to ensure we are providing the best education possible for all students.

When you receive the link please do take a few minutes to participate.

No cafeteria lunches this week

All students are asked to bring a packed lunch each day this week as there will not be any cafeteria lunch service. Students will be dismissed before lunch on Friday.

The grade 7-9 students will be bussed to Bally Hally for golfing in the morning.

All students will return by bus for a regular lunch session at the school. Cafeteria service is not available this week, thus students must bring their own lunch.


The afternoon:

After lunch, all grades will walk to Victoria Park for the afternoon events. There will be stations for races, and fun games. Students will remain with their class and homeroom teacher. Students will need outdoor sneakers for the park and any extra clothing according to the weather. Sun screen may also be necessary.

Parents are welcome to come to the park. Please help the teachers in any way to keep the students organized, especially during the walk over and back, and during station changes. Teachers will bring all students back to the school for regular dismissal.

Alternate activities have been planned for an “in-school” afternoon should weather not permit the Victoria Park activities.
