Weekly Update | April 21, 2017


A Message from Mrs. Kerwood

I have met with your new principal, Carole Jones, on a number of occasions. She is excited and already involved in decision making that impacts our learning community. She has attended staffing and finance sessions and together we will be attending the final RAM (Resource Allocation Method) meeting Friday of next week for our school. The day of her appointment announcement, Carol dropped into the school to introduce herself to the teaching staff and is eager to meet the support staff, the children and you. She is also hopeful that she will be in attendance at our School Council Meeting on Tuesday, April 25th. Carole is determined to make the transition as seamless as possible in order to serve our learning community. At this point in time, we believe April 28 will be my end date and May 1 will be Carol’s start date in the school.


It is with a sense of gratitude and appreciation to Lake Bonavista School’s staff, children and parents that I will be leaving your school with wonderful memories.  The school culture is dynamic, caring and gracious.


It personally has been a rich and rewarding experience for me to work alongside such a dedicated staff to serve your children.


In appreciation, Fay Kerwood,
Acting Principal, Lake Bonavista School


Seed Survivor Coming to LBS

On Monday, April 24 there will be a mobile Seed Survivor classroom setting up on our east compound for grades 3 through 6. Students will be asked to stay a distance away from the mobile as they are setting up and taking down on Tuesday, April 25 after school. Agrium developed The Seed Survivor program to teach students and the community about plants and the importance of agriculture. Students will have the opportunity to learn through a variety of displays, presentations and multi-media and virtual reality games in their hour long time with the mobile classroom.


Spring Kindergarten Concert

The Kindergarten students will present on Thursday, April 27 at 6 PM! This concert is inspired by the book The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt. Each Kindergarten student has received 2 tickets to this event. The Kindergarten students will also perform their concert songs for Lake Bonavista students during two assemblies on April 27: 9:30 AM for morning students and 1 PM for afternoon students. Friends and families are also welcome to join us for the assemblies if they wish.
