If you have a student in grade 4, 5, 5/6 or 6 you may already have heard that we have some International students that have joined these classes for January and February. Through a partnership with the Waterloo Learning Centre our school is hosting six students from Korea. This is a great opportunity for both Korean and LHCS students to engage with someone from another culture. Please join our staff and students in welcoming these visitors.

If you are new to LHCS (or even if you’ve been here a few years) you might be wondering what does it mean to become a member? In the newsletter and through letters, our Membership Committee has been encouraging parents to become members, but what does that mean, and why consider it?
Last week was a different week here at LHCS as we enjoyed our afternoon Agriculture Education Centres. There were a number of goals for these afternoon sessions, but I wanted to highlight three, Creation, Community and Contact.
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. This verse from Psalm 24:1 is both a confession of our faith that we belong to God, and a declaration that this world, and every part of it belongs to God. Our staff is eager to share these truths with our students this year through our theme. God’s care for us through creation.
Saturday, May 5th a small army of parents and students participated in the LHCS Spring Clean-up. Inside the school, microwaves were scrubbed, paint touched up, shelves dusted and scuff marks erased. Outside the school, sand was spread for the long jump pit, the parking lot and sidewalks were blown clean and the playground was made safer by loosening the mulch. Our school became a little tidier and the property committee had help with a few unfinished jobs around the school; but what may have been more significant was the sense of community and common purpose.
On February 22nd the 7/8 class went to Kitchener City Hall to participate in a mock Council meeting. The week before, everyone in the class was assigned a role and had two class periods to prepare for their parts. The issue for debating was the Strasburg Road extension proposal.
