Room 11 Student-Led Conferences - April 13th

Room 11 families your student-led conferences will take place on Thursday, April 13th from 3:00 pm - 7:30 pm. As these are student-led conferences, your child must be in attendance. An email will be sent once the system is open to book your conferences.


Please come to the conferences with your child, as he or she will be leading you through the classroom, and together you will be exploring their work and learning progress.

Goodbye Mrs. Sherwood

Lea made it a very happy environment, Lake Bonavista was home for her, and she made it home for us and for our kids. Lea was admired by parents for knowing every student’s name and for being a beacon of positivity. She is a an advocate, and a generous human being, giving freely of her time and resources to those she cares about. We will miss her dearly and wish her well in her new endeavours.

Watch for upcoming spring events from School Council.
