June. It seems like we were just making the first set of lunches in September and another school year
seems to have flown by. It has been a remarkable year, so many successes with our students, evidence
of rich learning all around us, and treasured moments of “school life” for all of us. The staff of Lancaster
Drive would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to all of our parents for their continued support of our
efforts and your children as we all invest in bringing out the very best in them, in challenging times and in times
of hearty celebration. Our volunteer appreciation tea and grandparents lunch were wonderful events to share
this sentiment with our community.

Staff and students have been able to enjoy many opportunities to take their learning outside of the classroom,
attending traditional Pow Wows, using Kingston Transit to explore our city, and stretching their
skills at our local gymnastics club. Our athletics continues to thrive with some stellar performances by our
Ultimate Frisbee team and a shared sense of accomplishment as students cheered each other on at our school
track meet. Track teams have continued practicing with our district and regional meets just around the corner. Good luck Lions!

Recently students competed in the Gauss math test and those in grades 4-6 participated in our Tell Them
From Me survey where they had an opportunity to share their voices back to the school in an on-line
survey. Results from this survey will help to feed our school improvement plan for the 2016-17 school year.

It is with our truest congratulations that we share the success of Cathy Carson in her new position as
Principal of Ecole Polson Park P.S. starting in September of 2016. Mrs. Carson has played an integral
role in so much of the vibrant school life at Lancaster Drive Public School, supporting an influx of technology
at our site and working closely with students and staff to support many new initiatives. Her commitment
to the school and the community will be greatly missed. We wish her the best as she heads out
on a new adventure.

To all of our families we look forward to ending off this school year strongly with you. We will watch with
pride and tenderness our graduating class finish off their elementary school career. They have been
great leaders and even in my short time at the school I have seen how much they have helped to build
the culture and spirit of Lancaster in positive ways. Well done graduates and best of luck!

All All the best over the summer months – swim, laugh, learn, and create memories together….can’t wait to see you in September!
