November has been a very busy month with many meetings in and out of the school division. Not only did the Provincial Leadership Team (PLT) meet to develop Cycle 3 of the Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP), but I was also able to join our Board of Education at their annual Fall Assembly.
Additionally, I also had the pleasure of attending staff meetings at Winston Churchill School and Jack Kemp Community School. As always, I am so encouraged by the good work that is happening in our schools. I leave each and every one of these meetings with a sense of pride about the people who call LPSD home and am always reminded about why Education truly is the greatest profession.
On Dec. 9, our staff will have the opportunity to celebrate our colleagues who will be receiving long service awards during our Christmas Banquet.
Wellness is in the air
When we as a division began our work with Dr. Michael Ungar and set student and staff wellness as a local priority, one of our main areas of focus became to provide environments that promote wellness. Just over a year later, we have been sharing successes from each of our schools through our resiliency video series.
I feel encouraged that we as a division are on the right track when I see how the schools have taken ownership in wellness opportunities for their staff and students, each with a flare that compliments the unique culture found in each of our schools.
Way to go, LPSD!
