Kindergarten Student Ambassadors
Lynnmour Kindergarten students hosted 3 successful afternoons with next year’s Lil Cubs.
Our Kindergarten students took their role seriously and were wonderful ambassadors. A big thank you to Ms. Harrington for welcoming the preschool children into her class so warmly and planning three hours of fun and engaging activities. Parents were invited to attend 3 workshops while their cubs were busy having fun in the Kindergarten class. Parents learned about literacy with Ms. Lawson, health with VCH nurse Lisa Hogan, and numeracy with our Family of Schools Leader, Shannon Sharp.
… was VERY exciting this year with our surprise guest, a juvenile black bear, who was spotted wandering along the forest trails behind the back field. Children and families were brought inside to continue Fun Day in the gym, and again, the following Tuesday. It was a ‘double’ Fun Day! Our staff thanks our community partners ( the RCMP and Conservation Officer Lonnie Schoenthal ) who kept everyone safe. A big thank you to the PAC who provided everyone with a pizza and fresh fruit lunch.
