As KPDSB prepares for the 2017-2018 school year, we wanted to reach out to our families to find out your needs for before and after school programs next school year. In order to gather this information, we have created a short online survey for you. Please visit this link.
The survey is open to families who have children in Kindergarten to Grade 5 in the 2016-2017 school year, as well as families with children who will be starting Kindergarten in the fall. Any information you can provide is helpful, even if you do not plan to enroll your child in before or after school programs.
Paper copies of the survey are also available at the main office.
Our January newsletter (student written and student produced) is now available! Our young writers have brought GLC experiences to you through articles and photos. This month, we’ve featured stories on learning that occurs during Literacy, Math, Science and Art. In addition to these academic features, we’ve also included articles highlighting the Mother-Son dance, curling, skiing and “Everything Fitz”. Check it out online at this link or read it at various businesses in the Red Lake area. Again, we’d like to thank our students and staff for their work in bringing this to publication.
“At the KPDSB, kids come first. No matter which school they attend, your child’s happiness, safety and education is our top priority. The Buddy System site is designed to help you find out more about the school where your child will be experiencing the world for the first time. With first-hand accounts from other parents, their children, and our educators, you’ll have the chance to see inside our classrooms. For a detailed breakdown of what our kindergarten programs and our schools are all about, follow the links. When you’re ready (take a deep breath!) visit our registration page and take the first steps towards your child’s first day of school!”

Thank you so much to our students and families for participating in the Christmas Cheer campaign to help make sure that everyone has an amazing Christmas! In total 670 items were donated in our school. Congratulations to the Grade ¾s who donated the most items in the school! The ¾s will be awarded a prize of an outdoor activity of skiing or sledding, and hot chocolate (hosted by the grade 8s)! Thank you to everyone who helped spread Christmas cheer by donating to someone in need this Christmas. Students participating in Neon Day, part of our spirit week for Christmas Cheer, are pictured!
