Importance of Regular Sleep

We wish all of our Lambton-Kingsway families a safe and happy weekend.  We will see everyone back online Monday.

Parent-Teacher Interviews:  The First Term Reports are scheduled to be sent home to students and families on Monday, February 8th.  Parent-teacher interviews are scheduled for Thursday, February 11th and Friday, February 12th.  At the end of the first term, interviews are held at the request of the teacher or if requested by a parent.  Teacher requests for interviews will be sent home to students and families next week.  In next week’s Friday Flash, there will be links available for booking interview times with teachers.

Kindergarten Registration: Although we are still in the middle of the 2020-2021 school year, it is important for us to know about our Kindergarten classes for next year.  We are expecting that Online Kindergarten registration will begin on February 1st for those students who will be 4 years of age by December 31st, 2021.  Lambton-Kingsway is closed to optional attendance, which means that only students living in the catchment area will be able to register for the school.  More information will be available in next week’s Friday Flash.

Terry Fox Update:  Congratulations, Lambton-Kingsway!  The Terry Fox organization has sent us an end of the year message.  “We are proud to announce that Lambton Kingsway Junior Middle School’s Terry Fox School Run collected $26,178.68 for cancer research! The Terry Fox Foundation extends their heartfelt thanks for your generosity and support in this very challenging year. Terry’s message of hope lives on and remains strong!  #tryliketerry . Thank you to all those families and students who have supported our Terry Fox initiatives this year and in the past.  Thank you to Ms. Gibson for her leadership and dedication to our Terry Fox events.

Thank you for your commitment to continue Terry’s legacy. Click here to check out some of the wonderfully creative and supportive ways some of our schools across the country helped out this year.”

Importance of Regular Sleep: Family life seems to be much more hectic as students try to fit in schoolwork, scheduled activities, time with friends and time with family.  We tend to let these demands chip away at some of our basic needs such as eating and sleeping regularly.  Recent research has tied a regular sleep schedule to academic success.  It is important to have a regular bed and waking time to help everyone think more clearly and effectively.
