LWMS Leaders at HPE!

On December 6 about 46 LWMS Leaders joined HPE letter writing. Our students helped with scribing, providing ideas, addressing envelopes and spending time with HPE students. We are so proud of our leaders! We had many compliments on their positive presence!

The students were from Divisions 4 and 5, the LWMS Leadership Club or were Class reps. The students walked down  and spent about an hour helping with the HPE Letter Writing afternoon. Students walked back and all reported that they they thoroughly enjoyed their experience. We are proud to support leadership and to promote activities for our students to shine and give back to the community.

Winter Recreation

Last week we sent home forms for Winter recreation. It takes place in January and February. Students attending events at Silver Star need to register online and the due date is very firm on their end! We are please to offer this exciting opportunity to our students!

The dates are January  24 and 31 and February 7.  Staff looks forward to the opportunity to support learning outside the classroom. It is also a chance for us to deepen relationships with our students through these fun events!

Boys Club

The Boys Club is now up and running with meetings every Wednesday after school, from 2:30-4:00 p.m.  So far, we have a group of about fifteen committed boys, and we will continue to accept new members any time.  Drop-ins are welcome, so please encourage your son to come check it out.  During the meetings, we sit in a circle to share stories and discuss issues that are important to being an adolescent boy in a rapidly changing world.  We have a light meal at every meeting, with guest speakers coming in at least once per month.  Our goal is to do some fundraising throughout the winter and spring so that we can go on a camping trip at the end of the school year.  Any parents who would like to help with fundraising efforts, please contact Mr. Liefke or Mr. Hryniw.Boys Club
