We invite you to visit our schools as they celebrate Education Week with a variety of activities.

Education Week Message from Director Jim Costello

The Ministry of Education has declared the week of May 6 to May 10 as Education Week across Ontario. The Lambton Kent District School Board’s (LKDSB) theme for this year’s celebration is:

LKDSB: Connecting Communities

The LKDSB and its staff strive to build positive relationships with our students to support their learning, physical and mental health, and well-being. The LKDSB appreciates the support of parents/guardians and community members in fostering safe and welcoming school environments.

Throughout the week, schools have been invited to share photos of the people who make our school communities great, including students, staff, parents/guardians and volunteers. We will be sharing these images throughout Education Week.

On behalf of our trustees, administrators, teachers and staff, we invite you to visit our schools to see examples of the learning opportunities which occur in LKDSB's elementary and secondary schools every day.

Best wishes to all for a successful Education Week and congratulations to our students, staff and volunteers for their efforts on behalf of Every Student, Every Day

Sincerely, 
Jim Costello
