Fill the Bus is back!


We will be supporting Fill the Bus this year along with other district schools. Anglophone East School District will be doing a hybrid campaign for Fill the Bus 2022. There will be the original food item collections at school, as well as a virtual campaign this year from November 28th to Dec 21st . All funds raised will go to School Breakfast Programs through the Food Depot Alimentaire and the food items collected will go to foodbank programs throughout our school district.  The district is very excited about this hybrid model for their 23rd year! Please find attached the information for the virtual collection. This will be available as well through School Cash Online.  We will have boxes set up outside the office for donations of non-perishable food items until December 19th. Thank you in advance!


The LMS Toy Drive is back!


The holidays are fast approaching, as is Leadership’s Toy Drive. For many children, this time of year usually means gifts, family and happiness. Unfortunately for some children that is not always the case. To help put a smile on every child’s face, we are asking LMS families to donate new toys, books, gift cards, games etc…to our Santa sled outside the office. Your generous donations will be accepted from December 5th to December 16th. These gifts will be given to boys and girls of various ages; in hopes of bringing them some holiday cheer. All donations will be given to Moncton’s Headstart Toyland.  Thanks in advance for your support.

Have your heard about our Paw Prints and Panther Expectations?


Every day, students have the opportunity to earn a paper pawprint when they show kindness, respect, or success inside or outside of the classroom. Each pawprint they earn enters them for a weekly prize draw and their pawprint gets hung in the main hallway of the school! Throughout the first term, teachers have awarded 1,806 pawprints to our students! We are so proud of our students for showing kindness, respect, and success every day this term. We will do a larger prize draw for students who earned the most pawprints throughout the term before taking down all of the pawprints to start anew for term 2! Thank you Ms. Phillips for leading this!


Weather and School Closures

Those of you new to the area, please check the Anglophone East website, listen to the radio, or call 856-SNOW when storms or icy roads are expected as schools may be closed or there may be a bus delay. You can sign up on the Anglophone East website to receive email notifications of closures or late buses.


Dropping off and Picking up your child at school


Please use the sidewalk side of McAuley Drive for drop off and pick up, as using the opposite side is dangerous as students cross the busy road. With the winter weather on the way, this is extremely important to remember. Students should be in homeroom by 8:30 am for attendance.


Holiday Break


Last day of school is Friday, December 23 at noon.

Students and staff return Monday, January 9th.


Have a wonderful December from all of us here at LMS.
