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
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.
Last day of school is Friday,
December 23 at noon.
Students and staff return Monday,
Have a wonderful December
from all of us here at LMS.
