We hope all enjoyed their March Break.
Hot Lunch Ordering will open this Wednesday, March 10th and will close Saturday March 20th at midnight. If you wish your child to have milk and hot lunch for the month of April, orders must be done before the 20th. Late orders cannot be processed.
 
We all would like to thank all the parents for their support with the Staff Appreciation. We at Lakefield were very spoiled indeed!!!
Through your support with our February Fundraising, we were able to raise $4160.00 for UNICEF for the Coronavirus Children's Crisis Appeal. Our donation will help UNICEF deliver life-saving medicine, nutritious food, and vaccines. This is part of our goal as we try to become a designated UNESCO school. Thank you for your unbelievable support!!
Attached to this email is our School’s March Newsletter. Please take the time to read through.

Looking forward, we will be reviewing the Zones of Regulation and the strategies students can use to calm down and "get back to green", when they are upset.  Here's a video from the creator of "zones" about how families can make their own "check in" system to facilitate communication when we're at home ... these days, a little more often than usual!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l07xlKoNYEE
 
 
Leah Kuypers (author of Zones of Regulation) and her family created a short video to help kids at home put together their own Zones of Regulation Check-In for families. Handouts mentioned in the video available via Zones of Regulation www.zonesofregulation.com or through Social Thinking's website along with other home lessons and activities ...
 
 
 
Lakefield students celebrate using their WITS, managing reactions and standing up for each other on Pink Shirt Day in 2021. Great work everyone!
