You might be feeling buried under all the snow and yes the cold temperatures might be getting you cooled down but here at LES nothing is blocking our way and things are heating up! February is a busy month with lots to focus on beyond our daily lessons. Grade 5 Student Lead activities are keeping our younger students busy at lunch time with a variety of things to experience and enjoy. We will be Celebrating 100 Day, Kindness Month, Staff Appreciation Week, Pink Day, and even maybe a movie night just before Break hosted by the H&S. WOW! We know 100 Day will happen but with storm days, it’s still a moving target. Each day our students are being given a kindness challenge to work for the day (and longer we hope). It might be as simple as smiling at everyone you meet or finding a new person to play with at recess. Little acts of kindness that can make a big impact on others – pass it on! Each day a special kindness quote will be heard over our PA System reinforcing that Kindness Matters. The week before March Break, we will be celebrating Pink Day – yes Pink Day will be about 4 days long but it is a worthwhile and important cause. Students can have a finger nail painted for a small donation, one day we will turn our school into a sea of pink with everyone (we hope) dressed in pink from head to toe, a pink sock-hop for the upper grades will happen in the gym at lunchtime for a donation to the Kid’s Help Phone and a special, and a school wide hot lunch prepared by our Ladies of Pink, Mrs. Hughes & Ms. Beaudet, will be served free of charge to all. Lunch will be a Grilled Cheese sandwich and a pinkish shade of tomato soup. Instead of fighting the winter weather we will be getting out and enjoying a winter fun day organized by our awesome gym teachers, way to go Ms. Wisdom & Mr. Kelley. Wow for the shortest month of the year, we have packed a lot into it.
