School News and Activities Details:
We Scare Hunger Food Drive – October 17-November 1
We are excited to announce that LKS will be putting on a musical production of Willy Wonka. We have started auditions for lead roles that will be played by students in Grade 6 – 8. All students from Gr 1 – 5 will have an opportunity to be a part of the musical through ensembles or background characters. They will learn songs and actions during their regular music program. We will be looking for stage crew closer to production time and will keep the students posted. Our hope is to have the production ready for the beginning of March prior to the break. If this changes we will let parents know and give advance notice for ticket sales. We look forward to providing you with upcoming details in the following months.
