Superintendent's Report - April 2024

Spring has finally sprung! There is no surer sign that the seasons have changed than the beginning of eight weeks of training for our annual Reconciliation Run Walk Wheel taking place in all SD8 schools in June. The run offers weekly teachings on this year’s theme of Health, Wellness, and Reconciliation, along with training tips and information for all the staff, students and families who participate.

Have a great Spring Break & Easter Weekend, everyone!  See you back on Tuesday, April 2nd for the last 13 weeks of the year.  Please be prepared for a focused finish after the break as the last term tends to fly by very quickly!

Good day out there, LVR Community.

This week's pic comes from the return of the 24-Hour Writing Contest, hosted at LVR last Friday/Saturday from 11:30am-11:30am, and included guest authors, Gillian Wylie & Roz Nay.  Thanks to Ms. Kroker & Ms. Lord for organizing and hosting this event, along with Ms. Browning who is helping with selecting the winner from the 16 entries.  Students involved in this event were highly engaged and were incredibly helpful with each other in idea-generation and editing each other's work.  Watch for this event again next year!

Good day out there, LVR Community.

Highly spirited end to the week yesterday with our second school-wide LVR House Teams event of the year, the Indoor Track Meet, led by our Rec Leadership 11/12 students and Mr. McComb!  Great to see the level of student involvement & positivity in organizing, running, participating, and supporting all teams. These events are cell phone & backpack free with the intention of developing in-person connections and being present to enjoy the moment.  Next up is our Math & Science Olympiad on March 15.
