Keeping busy at Lady Grey Elementary School

An update from the Vice Principal about what has been going on at Lady Grey Elementary School and what's coming up.

Laurie MacDougall

Vice Principal/Special Education

November was an engaging month with students involved in a number of initiatives. We are in the middle of tryouts for our upcoming musical, No Strings Attached; it will involve more than 70 students. Rehearsals will go on all winter culminating in a much anticipated spring performance.  Any community members interested in helping with costumes are asked to contact the school.

We enjoyed a lovely cultural performance entitled Infinitus where students learned a great deal about stringed instruments as well as dynamics and rhythm while listening to both classical and pop music.

We are looking forward to our upcoming Christmas festival which will take place in the afternoon this year, from 1 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, December 14.

Our Lady Grey parents have been busy putting on a delicious hot lunch program every Friday; an occasion looked forward to each week by our students. We sure appreciate the parents who take the time to volunteer their time for us.

We have a number of lunch clubs ongoing; including Boys’ Wrestling, Lego, Girls’ Soccer, Operation Fresh Air activities, Cards and Games, Circus Arts, Aboriginal Crafts and Street Hockey. Our street hockey games have taken on a new level with members of the Golden Rockets attending on a weekly basis!

Our students have recently been involved with a group from Golden Secondary’s P.A.R.T.Y. program where they decorated bags for the Liquor Store reminding folks not to drink and drive. The time spent with the G.S.S. students was, of great benefit to our students.

The winter holiday is fast approaching and all of the staff at Lady Grey wishes all of you a safe, happy and active holiday season!

At Field school we have really been enjoying the snow and have been busy tobogganing at every opportunity! We started a home reading program and everybody has been reading like mad! November has flown by and we are now gearing up for the Christmas activities. We’re writing our letters to Santa this week because we always look forward to picking up letters from him at the Post Office. This season is one of our favourites at Field School.
