Dear Ladner Families,
Our kindergarten orientation has been scheduled for May 12. Information packages have been sent out to all our new kindergarten families. There will be a series of other optional workshops in the weeks after to discuss issues of early literacy and mathematics. We look forward to meeting our new students then.
Track and Field season is well underway. The regional track meet will be held on May 10. We have track practices 4 mornings a week and the field event practices happen at other times during the week. We are very proud of all the kids coming out and putting forth their best efforts.
Yearbook order forms have gone home with students. It is a 20 page full-colour book with a soft cover that features pictures and write ups from the Grade 7's as well as the class photos, and some photos of various events from the school year. A team of students has been working very hard to get this ready for publication.
You are warmly invited to celebrate the musical talents of Ladner Elementary Students on Thursday May 26th. The band and choir will both be performing a selection of songs. The concert will begin at 6:30 p.m., doors will open at 6:15 p.m. Light refreshments to follow.
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.
Our mural artist, Jason Craft, has completed the mural in the entrance of the school. Students enjoyed visiting Jason throughout the process and asking him many questions about his art. He was also able to add additional elements to the mural as kids made suggestions over his time here.
If you or any other families in the area have children of age for kindergarten in the 2016-2017 school year please come to the school office to register. Please bring proof of residencey (rental agreement or purchase agreement, property tax statement), child's birth certificate, proof of immunization, and proof of parents citizenship. We look forward to meeting the new Kindergarten children and their families!
