Week at a Glance

Here is my last email for the 2019/20 school year!  We are anticipating we will be able to start back at 100% in September if BC continues to stay on this track with COVID 19, however, we will wait for final direction from the Ministry on August 22nd to make the final announcement. Please find below important information regarding school start up and school supplies.

Thank you again for a wonderful year!  We hope your family has a wonderful summer. 

- Mrs. N. Driscoll

Classes for Next Year

Creating well-balanced classes is very important at LME. In the first week of school, we will be checking our attendance very carefully and then submitting our school organization into the district. It is our aim to have classes formed as quickly as possible. During the first week of school, our students will be reviewing our school code of conduct, which includes our school PBS Matrix and behavioural expectations in all school settings. Our dedicated staff has experience in meeting the needs of all of our learners and is very creative in ensuring that all learning outcomes are met for each grade. Although there may be changes in September, our tentative classroom organization for next year will be as follows:

  • Kindergarten: Mrs. Dirven, Mrs. L. Price, Ms. Kornelius
  • Gr. 1: Mrs. Dalton, Ms. Atkinson
  • Gr. 1/2 Mrs. Lockhart
  • Gr. 2: Mrs. Hartman, Ms. Puttaert
  • Gr. 2/3 Mrs. Janz
  • Gr. 3: Mrs. McGowan, Mrs. Haagensen
  • Gr. 3/4: Mrs. Saunders
  • Gr. 4: Mrs. Huitema
  • Gr. 4/5: Mr. Merrick
  • Gr. 5: Ms. Franz, Ms. Moore
