Week at a Glance

Hello Centennial Comets!

Literacy Week

Last week, we celebrated our Centennial Literacy Week.  Students had the opportunity to participate in many exciting literacy-based activities.  Our Comets enjoyed the door decorating contests, daily Name That Book draws, dressing as their favourite storybook character, our book exchange, the Alphabet Soup contest and other fun activities that promote their love and passion for books and reading. 

Scholastic Book Fair

The book fair will be open on Wednesday, February 19, for students to purchase books.  Students will have the opportunity to visit the book fair with their class during the day.  The book fair will also be open until 5:30 on Wednesday, for any parents that want to visit the book fair and purchase books.  If you send in money, for your child to purchase a book, we ask that you send it in a labeled envelope or labeled Ziploc bag.

LDSB Indigenous Family Network

On Thursday, February 20, the LDSB Indigenous Family Network will be hosting an evening of Indigenous cultural activities from 5:45 to 7:20 at the Katarokwi Learning Centre (38 Cowdy Street).  This is an opportunity for Indigenous students and their families to take part in cultural activities, connect with other Indigenous families, and find out what is happening in the community.  A light meal will be served.  If you are planning on attending, please email Scott Nichol at [email protected].

LDSB Labour Updates

The school is closed to all students on Friday, February 21, due to the planned provincial strike by members of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario.  For more information regarding LDSB Labour Updates please visit the LDSB website at: https://limestone.on.ca/ .
