Curling TeamEarlier this week our Wolfpack Curling teams played their final games of the season in the Divisional playoffs at the Sarnia Curling Club. Both teams played St. Pats, trying to bring the top teams down a notch - but were unsuccessful in our fight to move on to the next level. With many brand new curlers this year, the improvement our team showed from the beginning of the season to the end was a great source of pride for the coaches - Congratulations to all of you for learning to curl and improving your game and taking on a tough season. We hope to see some of you back with us again next year. Way to go Wolfpack Curling!

Welcome Back

​Good morning, Wolfpack!

Welcome back to semester two!  I trust that you enjoyed having a few days off school and are well rested and ready to learn.  I would like to welcome all our new students for this semester.

Today, we begin a new semester.  This is an opportunity for each of us to have a fresh start.  We will continue to hold high expectations for you because we believe that each one of you can learn, achieve, and progress with time, support, and a caring teacher.  Your teachers will talk more about this in your classes today. I encourage you to set learning goals for yourself this semester and be the best that you can be.

Please check the school website, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages for news and information including morning announcements, the student handbook, and calendar.

Report cards will be mailed out later this week.

Students are expected to attend the classes that are on their timetable.  If you wish to make a timetable change then please make an appointment with Student Services or come to Student Services at lunch or after school.  The guidance counselors have been working very hard to see each student but will see students on a prioritized basis.

Students are reminded that parking at the school is for staff only.  Students are welcome to park across the street at the arena. Vehicles that do not have an LKDSB parking pass in the windshield are at risk of being towed at the owner’s expense.

Have a great start to the semester, Wolfpack!
