Beach Day: Friday, March 12 was beach day at Lambton-Kingsway.  Thank you to our Student Council who have initiated our special Friday Spirit Days.  It is a great way to have fun and to show some school spirit.  Today our students sported sunglasses, bucket hats and beach shirts as they urged our summer months to come as soon as possible.  Friday spirit days are a great way to show Lambton-Kingsway spirit and to end our week with a smile.

Spring Day:  Friday, March 19 is our third Lambton-Kingsway Spirit Day.  Students are encouraged to come to school with ‘Spring’ items as we look forward to the end of winter and the beginning of spring.  Students can wear bright colours, flower patterns, pastel colours and anything else that helps them think of Spring.

Grade 8 Graduation: Students, parents and families of our Grade 8 students always look forward to the milestone event of Grade 8 Graduation.  Our teachers continue to work with our parent volunteers to plan an event that will recognize the achievement of our students.  We will be holding a graduation event for our students on June 24th.  As per direction from the TDSB, all graduation events are to be virtual.  As details of the event become finalized, they will be communicated to our Grade 8 students and parents.  The safety and security of our students, families and staff is always our top priority. 

School Photos:  We continue to hold March 30 and 31 as tentative dates for our school photos.  At this point in time, we are awaiting approval from TDSB and Toronto Public Health to move forward with photographs.  Photographs will be taken while adhering to all TDSB safety protocols.  Our priority will be our Grade 8 Graduation photos.  We will provide further details about the schedule once all is confirmed.

Daylight Saving Time – Sunday, March 14th:  Students and families are reminded that on Sunday, March 14th at 2:00 a.m. clocks are turned forward one hour.

Thank You Parents:  We realize that everyone is growing weary of Covid safety procedures.  We come to school each day wearing a mask, sanitize and wash hands multiple times a day, remain distant from friends in different classes and have had to change our regular routines.  At home, families have had to adjust so that students who display symptoms are able to remain isolated or be tested.  We thank you for your support and cooperation.  We are hopeful that the present vaccine rollout will have a significant impact and we will be able to re-adjust soon.
