LVR Weekly Update - 10Feb24

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.  

Student Learning Updates (Reports) were published to the MyEdBC student portals toward the end of the day yesterday for end of semester one grades & feedback. For any technical issues, please contact Julia at clerical.lvr2@sd8.bc.ca and for any questions about the reports themselves, please contact me at dan.rude@sd8.bc.ca.
