Week at a Glance

Hello Centennial Comets!

LDSB Indigenous Family Network
On Thursday, January 16, 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 nichols@limestone.on.ca

Litterless Lunch
A reminder that we are an Eco-Certified school.  We ask that all students bring a ‘litterless lunch’ to assist in reducing the amount of waste that goes into landfills.  Let’s do our part for the environment.  Thank you for your support with this initiative. 

Reporting Your Child’s Attendance
With the implementation of SafeArrival, you no longer need to call the school to report your child’s absence. 
There are three ways you can report your student’s absence in advance:
1.
