What a glorious fall this has been! September was a
whirlwind of activity as our new office staff quickly
got up to speed on a day in the life of a Linden
Meadows student. What a busy place! Mrs. Loepp and I
loved the Flag Raising Ceremony on our first day. What
a beautiful way to start the year!
Teachers have been busy getting their social contracts
in place over the month of September.
Mrs. Loepp and I have enjoyed having the
children share their classroom agreements with us. As
we observe the teaching and learning that takes place
at Linden Meadows School, we are excited by what the
children are learning.
This is a very professional staff that embraces
the value of lifelong learning as teachers strive for
enhanced practice and engaged students.
It was wonderful to meet with many parents during the
Meet the Teacher night. We look forward to welcoming
our community again during our first set of
tri-conferences that take place on October 16 and 17.
Student activities are in full swing.
The volleyball and cross country season is well
under-way, the choir (new at LM this year) has begun
to meet and art club welcomed a record number of
students after school on Mondays.
On September 26, Linden Meadows hosted the
annual Terry Fox run. Students in 5 S-F led an
assembly on the life of Terry Fox and inspired us to
embrace the beautiful day and head out doors.
It was wonderful to see the students so
committed to their run/walk as they raised money and
an awareness of the importance of cancer research.
On September 29 and October 7, Linden Meadows welcomes
Mrs. Schultz, a visiting principal from Brazil.
Mrs. Schultz is visiting Canadian schools to
learn about Early Years education in Canada.
Mrs. Schultz is part of the Maple Bear Schools
Association in Brazil.
