Please click here to view the school supply lists for 2016-2017. There are 4 pages; the first two are for the English Program and the last two are for French Immersion.
Now that we are in June, if you know you won't be attending Ladner Elementary next year, please notify the school office as soon as possible. If you know of people who have recently moved into the area, please encourage them to register at the school as soon as possible.
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!
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.
