A holiday message from Lady Grey Elementary School principal Blaine Broderick

On behalf of the staff of Lady Grey Elementary School (LGES), I wish you happy holidays and hope you have an enjoyable and prosperous New Year.

There are many highlights to the past year. Thanks to Kristine Divall, Laurie MacDougall, and the Lady Grey Parent Advisory Council (PAC), Lady Grey was a recipient of a grant from the Columbia Basin Trust. The grant went towards the construction of our outdoor classroom. Louisiana Pacific and the Lady Grey PAC also contributed to the project.

Our students continue to learn about leadership and the seven habits of highly effective people. Thanks to the Student Lighthouse Team, students have been participating in a variety of events such as the farmer’s market that was held in May. A major highlight of the year was Leader Day at Nicholson Elementary School. The entire Lady Grey school travelled to Nicholson for a fantastic day of activities and community building. The Nicholson and LGES Student Lighthouse Teams planned and ran 24 stations.

Students and staff at Lady Grey continue to engage in a variety physical activity. Grade 4 and 5 students participated in downhill skiing thanks to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Whitetooth Downhill Society, and the Golden and District Community Foundation. Mme. Rebecka’s class organized the spring bike and hike days. This school year, Mrs. MacDougall and Mme. Rebecka have organized Physically Fit in 40 – a physical literacy program that allows students to partake in a number of different activities including curling, yoga, and street hockey. We are fortunate to have many community members joining us and leading sessions.

We are very lucky to be surrounded by such a caring and dedicated staff and we look forward to another great year of learning and growth.

All the best for 2019 (and beyond).

Blaine Broderick
