The first few days of school were filled with numerous smiles and the Ledger Way core values seen all over the school. The students seem to be finding their groove and adjusting to the school day. They bring such great joy with them as they interact with the school community. A couple of days ago I observed one student supporting a peer by helping them up and laughing off the situation. It was a wonderful sight of unity and community matched with a learning opportunity. So many of these stories can be found and shared if we search for them. The Ledger Way is alive and well.
Thank you for supporting our second year of our parking plan on the upper parking lot. It appears everyone is pitching in and doing their part by using the middle lane to exit the lot. This process supports safety and support everyone driving forward and limiting the need to go in reverse where students and parents may be walking. Thank you for working together to keep everyone safe.
We are asking you to please leave pets in the car or at home when dropping off or picking up children. Pets are not allowed on our lower playground. This is to keep everyone safe as we drop off or dismiss from school. Thank you for your cooperation.
