Get Involved – Be Connected – Make a Difference!

November 6 Update

Good afternoon LKS Parents.

Hope all of you are well and enjoying this great November(?) weather.

Pretty quiet week at school so not much new to report.  We are preparing for our Remembrance Day ceremony which will obviously look a little different this year and finalizing report cards which will be sent home on Monday November 16.  The online booker for parent/teacher interviews will be open until the end of the day and our staff will confirm all arrangements with you in the coming days.

We will finish with a message from your Parent Council.

Enjoy the weekend.

All of us at LKS
