Staff Updates for 2017-2018
There are no changes to the administration team for next year – we are both thrilled to be working another year here and another year together!
We are currently hiring for 4 positions – a K/1, a 5/6, Library/VP Relief/ ELL and an Administrative Assistant. The 5/6 class is a new division to help comply with the new contractual obligations.
Please join me in thanking and honouring the work of Diane Arbez (current gr. 1) and Suzanne Postle (admin assistant) as they look forward to their retirement. Their dedication to Lynnmour and to our students is what makes this a great school to be at. Ms Arbez and Mrs. Postle will be greatly missed by all! Congratulations on your retirement!
With heavy hearts, we also say goodbye to Ms. Conn (counselor returning to Ross Road), Mrs. Blewman (LST/ELL/VP relief- accepted a position at Carrisbrooke), Ms. Nairn and Mrs. Dorsey (EA’s – both on temporary assignments). We thank you for your unconditional support of our students and wish you well in your new assignments.
Student Self Assessment Sheets and Report Cards
An important aspect of learning is understanding and being able to reflect on our growth. On June 9th, your child(ren) brought home a self reflection sheet of their learning over in one core competency area learned this year. It’s important that you take some time to discuss their growth – what they’ve learned about – and what can be improved upon.
Final report cards will be posted to the portal by noon, Wednesday, June 28, 2017. Parents are reminded to save and print their child’s report card as the reports are removed on July 31, 2017 as part of the provincial year-end roll over procedure.
Summer Guardians for our school and gardens
Please make an effort to keep a watchful eye out for our school this summer. Feel free to drive by, come by on your bikes, or walk over to make sure our school stays free from graffiti, or vandalism. In the event of suspicious behavior or vandalism, please contact the RCMP. Thank you for keeping a watchful eye on our school! If you have a moment, feel free to keep our gardens free of weeds and bring a bucket of water to make sure our plants continue to grow! Thanks!
Congratulations to our Athletes!
Please join me in congratulating our 6 intermediate students who made it to Swangard this year! Competing against all North Vancouver schools, Bella placed 7th in 100m (200m), Diego placed 4th in 100m, Tyler placed 3rd in 100m, 1st in shot put, 5th in long jump and 8th in high jump, Cam placed 7th in long jump, Alex placed 9th in shot put and Maile placed 8th Congratulations to our kids and thank you to our coaches!
There will be a slight change to our bell schedule for next year. Doors will open after 8:30 (earlier for clubs), with the first bell going at 8:40. Recess is 10:25-10:40, Lunch is 12:00-12:25 (play first) 12:25-12:48 (eating time) and 2:40 dismissal. An additional 3 minutes will be added to the “eating” time of lunch to comply with ministry collective agreement requirements of “minutes in session”.

A continued school focus for next year will be on attendance, including arriving on time and being prepared to learn.
