Swimming Begins - December 1

Students in Grades 1 to 4 will enjoy the intensive swimming program offered at LLPS for the two week period starting on Monday, December 1st and winding up on Friday, December 12th. The weather at this time of year is variable and we will try to make the best decisions we can if it turns inclement. It can be tough, but we know we have the backing of our parents who will also make personal decisions for their children based on what they know. Having said that, it is best for students to consistently turn up to all 10 sessions if health permits. We will get the kids into and out of the water as fast as we can, and they get wet inside the water (apparently).

It is very important that parents put sunscreen on their children in the morning before leaving for school and to pack some extra sunscreen in a tube inside their bags. Statewide policy has it that schools should not supply sunscreen for fear of allergic reaction so please be well prepared for any weather event.

Learning to swim is a valuable life skill so we urge parents to fully support the program.

Manners of Our Children

Whenever I pass by our children in the corridors, each one of them looks me in the eye and asks how my day is going. It is unique to Lara Lake and it is a wonderful feeling. Parents have a lot to do with how manners are presented at school and it is a credit to you all for bringing your children up with such scruples. It makes our school a wonderful place to be. Thank you.
