Terry Fox Run:
Thank you to Mrs. Jensen and Ms. Meule for coordinating this year’s Terry fox Run. We raised over $400 for Cancer Research! Lynnmour students and their families are continuing to keep Terry’s dream alive! Congratulations to all runners and thank you for your generous donations!
Indigenizing our curriculum
With Ms. Meule’s Aboriginal Education leadership, we have been very fortunate as we build a collection of resources that support our Language Arts programs. Recently, many of the primary classes have been using picture book and story resources through Strong Nation. Raven Helper’s is one example that students are able to read “in character” to an aboriginal puppet.
Great Shake Out BC!
We conducted our first Earthquake Preparedness Drill on Thursday, October 19th. Performing emergency drills and reviewing school emergency plans are important and necessary steps in becoming as prepared as possible for an emergency situation.
This is also a good opportunity to talk about being prepared for an emergency at home. The North Shore Emergency Management Office encourages everyone to create a family emergency plan and stock and maintain a basic home emergency kit. Supply lists for a basic home emergency kit can be found at http://nsemo.org/.

Middle Years Survey
We invite your child to take part in a study aimed at gathering important information about the health and well-being of 4th and 7th grade children inside and outside of the school. Specifically, the Middle Years Development Instrument (MDI) is an online survey that students complete in schools in November/December. This study is led by researchers at the Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP) at the University of British Columbia and is sponsored by NVSD44, The United Way of the Lower Mainland and by the Government of BC.
