Dear Ladner Families,
Our school is buzzing with excitement and learning with lots of different activities going on. Our volleyball season is wrapping up next week with tournaments for Grade 6 on Monday the 23rd and Grade 7 on Tuesday the 24th.
Our We Group is taking on two important service initiatives over the next few weeks. One is the DeltaAssist Angel program where kids can take an angel off the Christmas tree in the library and buy a gift for the age specified on the back of the angel. The new unwrapped gifts can be returned to the library, with the angel, for pick up on December 2.
The second initiative is the annual food drive at Ladner El. Kids may begin bringing in non-perishable food items to their classes on Wednesday, November 25th. The We Group kids will collect, sort, and check the expiry dates for the food collected. Pick up will be on December 16. Thank you in advance for your supporting our kids in their efforts to make their community a better place for everyone.
Please label all of your child’s belongings with their name, including clothing and footwear. It will be very important to label all of your child’s clothing so that we are able to identify who it belongs to before it ends up in the Lost and Found.
If you are planning on shopping for school supplies without ordering through the school, the supply lists can be seen by clicking here. Please note there are different pages for the English and French Programs as indicated at the top of each page.
A reminder about parking at Ladner Elementary. We have a very busy street and driveway during the before and after school times. Student safety is a top priority so we ask that drivers obey posted speed limits and remember that the parent driveway by the gym is for drop off and pick up only. Vehicles can not be left unattended in this area as it creates traffic congestion that poses a risk to student safety. Anyone needing to park at the school is asked to park on the street or at Cromie Park. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Please ensure you have updated your Emergency Release names in PARENT CONNECT so that kids can be released to people you intend to have help out. Please keep in mind that the Emergency Contact people are not the same as the Emergency Release people.
