At our class rep meeting, we were asked to have LWMS masks available to sell. We have found a local supplier who will ceate the masks with our logo! The order forms are due March 10, 2021 and the masks should be at school after the break! We are encouraging student voice at LWMS!
The Tye Dye Tigers have been working on locker painting since Chrsitmas. They do the activity on Thursday afternoons. We wanted to share the awesome results! Some of the lockers are still in progress but it is amzing the joy is has brought to our hallways. We are grateful for their creativity and the fresh look that it has given to our old lockers!
LWMS had a very successful Pink Shirt day, with a few activities leading up to the day. Firstly, our class reps designed bulletin boards with pink shirts that promoted messages of kindness. The class reps also promoted a kindess challenge which had 15 activities. We counted all the kind acts, and our school had a GRAND TOTAL OF 814 KIND ACTS!!!!! WOW! Mrs. Hamilton’s class had the most kind acts with 127, and second was Mrs. Ganzeveld’s class with 116! As prizes, these two classes received Pink Shirt Day buttons to wear! Also for Pink Shirt Day, our GSA group collected artwork and have put together a wonderful display in the library. The Gallery display is titled Diversity, Inclusiveness and Kindess. It is amazing! Well done LWMS!
