    Pink Shirt Day 2019 was honoured by Mee-Yah-Noh School during our February 27 Kindergarten Show&Tell session. Students and staff were clad in Be Kind Always t-shirts to show their support for anti-bullying. The adorable Kindergarten students sang Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes and taught us there is more than just one verse to the song! Some of us stuck around after the session to enjoy the awesome Pink Day assembly and performances organized by the entire school. It was an inspirational day for our guests who learned about the significant benefits of early learning intervention and full-day Kindergarten.

  • M.E. LaZerte leadership students help their Princeton kinder buddies 'Pay it Forward'

    Leaders, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists.  That is how you’d describe Mr. Card’s leadership students from M.E. LaZerte.  In January and February, these high school students helped their Kindergarten buddies at Princeton school sell lollipops as a “pay it forward” fundraiser – an annual activity each full-day Kindergarten class does to support the following year’s Kindergarten students.

    The fundraiser raised more than $850 and was so fun that the students have packaged the “Lollipop Project” into a turn-key fundraiser-in-a-box that any class could replicate.

    We are always inspired by our District’s students to engage the community and help each out!
