Principal's Message

Happy December

​I hope your family is enjoying the recent mild weather and taking lots of opportunities to get outside. Even though we have had lots of snow, it is not yet winter! At Lake Bonavista School, we love to learn outside so please be sure to send weather- appropriate clothes every day so children can be comfortable and ready to be outside in all kinds of weather.
Our Winter Concert is coming up next week (December 12 - daytime and evening concerts) and everyone is engaged in rehearsing, set building and decor. We look forward to welcoming your family to school on that day. Please see the Winter Concert news story on our front page and the recent School Messenger emails with all the details. 
Did you know we share school results information, our fees report and our current School Development Plan with you? Go to the Our School page:​ to find links to these documents.
Thank you for being part of our Lake Bonavista School community. We are so glad to be on this learning journey together.
The last day of school for 2019 is Thursday December 19 at 2:45 (except AM Kinder). We hope your family has a wonderful Winter Break and that you find lots of time to read every day, get outside and spend time with family and friends. 
See everyone back at school on Monday January 6, 2020!
Here are a few ideas for having fun with reading over the break and every day!
Read when children are in a good mood.
When everyone is feeling happy and relaxed is a great time to transfer those good feelings into a love of reading. When they may be feeling tired or grumpy, it can be a good time for them to flop onto the couch and listen to you read aloud, especially something funny.
Read aloud even after they can read to themselves
People of all ages love to listen to books being read aloud. Taking the opportunity to spend quality time together can strengthen relationships. Even when children don’t need us to read aloud to them, they really do need us to keep reading aloud. Reading aloud adventure stories, familiar favourites or the latest trending chapter book is a great way to explore stories.
Make it fun!
This is a big step in bringing up book lovers: make reading time FUN!​Make sure they see you enjoying reading.
Have them choose books they love.
Read and re-read favourites.
Ditch books that no one likes.
Make reading a fun, enjoyable time to connect, laugh, and chat together.(adapted from Everyday Reading Blog)
