We certainly have a lot to be proud of around Lloyd Public!
This was the first year students from Avery Outreach School competed at the Regional and Provincial Skills Competitions. Four students headed to the Regional Competition at Lakeland College in Vermilion, bringing home gold and silver medals, and three students competed at Provincials, narrowly missing a medal with a fourth place finish.
The Lloydminster Comprehensive High School will be sending three students to the National Skills Competition in Winnipeg from May 31 to June 3. Those Provincial gold-medals were three of the eight medals LCHS brought home from Provincials. LCHS students also brought home eight medals from the Regional Skills Competition. Annually LCHS continues to demonstrate that it has one of the most successful Skills programs in the province!
It’s great to see our students from Avery join our students from LCHS in representing our organization and city so well at the Provincial and National level! Way to go Team!
I was also very proud to hear that Bishop Lloyd Middle School was chosen as a recipient of the National Inclusive Education Award. If you missed it, a write up on the award can be found here. This national award is a great example of schools fulfilling our mission statement of Ensuring Personal Excellence For All Students. The staff of Bishop Lloyd Middle School should be very proud of their accomplishment!
The 2017-18 school year is going to be exciting as we embark on the creation of an Early Learning Centre at Barr Colony School. Junior Kindergarten, a program for four-year-old children will begin in September. I am very excited about the addition of Junior Kindergarten and look forward to how it will ensure that we provide more children with a rich literacy-based experience during their most informative years. The benefits of Junior Kindergarten will be immediate and long lasting!
Wow ... June is around the corner! The 2016-17 school year is nearing its conclusion and so much has been accomplished by our students and staff. The next month will provide us all with the opportunity to celebrate the success of our students. I would encourage all of you to take the opportunity to attend a graduation ceremony or an achievement night at one of our schools to see first hand all of the amazing students that call LPSD home.
It is with great confidence that I can say we have been blessed to work with such great kids and that our community will be in good hands for years to come!
