Dear Ladner Families,
Track and Field season has ended. Ladner Elementary had an excellent showing at the district track meet at SDSS. We are proud of all out athletes for representing the school well both on and off the track.
Stretch Programs are offered in Delta to students who show an interest and aptitude in areas of writing, art, math, and science. If you feel your child would benefit from an extension to their program, please contact your child's teacher. Write Stretch is available for grades 3-12, Math grades 5-7, Science grades 5-10, and Art grades 5-7. Applications were due by Friday, May 20. Art Stretch is due at Delta Manor Education Centre by May 30. STEM Stretch 7 is due into the school by May 27.
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!
