Weekly Update | Nov. 24, 2016


Thank you!
On behalf of the students and staff at LBS we would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone involved with the planning, organizing, ordering and distributing of the Freezer FEASTival. Events like this go a long way in improving the educational opportunities at LBS!


Student-Teacher-Parent Conferences
Conferences are on Dec. 1st and 2nd. You can sign up in My CBE Account.


Dec. 1st is a half day for students (11:38am dismissal and only AM kindergarten attend on Dec. 1. They will be taking the same bus home at 11:38 am as they took to school in the morning). Conferences will begin at 3:15 and run until 7:00 pm. Dec. 2nd conferences will run from 8:15 am to 12:00 pm.


Exception: Ms. Ireland’s Kindergarten. Her conferences will start at 8:30 AM on Thursday, Dec. 1st. Her AM kindergarten students will still attend class. There will be a substitute teacher in the room with the students. Kindergarten students do not attend this round of Kindergarten conferences.


Grades 1-6: conferences will include students as a central participant in the conversation. Plan to arrive at the school 10-15 minutes before your time with the teacher so your child can share some of their work with you prior to the meeting.


Lake Bonavista Winter Concert

You are cordially invited to attend our Winter Concert on Dec. 8th, 2016. This performance is presented to you by the Grades 1 to 6 students. The Kindergarten students will be presenting a Celebration of Learning in the New Year.
