Best wishes for a happy, healthy and productive 2018. We are happy to see our students back into the school routine despite a few school closures due to winter road conditions. We extend a warm welcome to NSCC student Nicole MacDonald who is completing a four week practicum at our school.
Parents and caregivers, please contact your child’s teachers if you have any concerns or questions. We welcome and encourage open and ongoing communication. We appreciate the parental support you provide and would like to continue working with you to ensure the best learning opportunities for students at PLFN School.
I encourage parents and caregivers to ensure students are dressed appropriately for weather conditions. Unless it is raining, or there is a wind chill advisory, we go outside for recess twice per day, and it is important to be prepared.
We are regularly posting new information on our school website, so please continue to check it for any new up-dates and information including homework .

Roots of Empathy
The mission of Roots of Empathy is to build caring, peaceful and civil societies through the development of empathy in children and adults. Roots of Empathy focuses on raising levels of empathy, resulting in more respectful and caring relationships and reduced levels of bullying and aggression.
The Roots Of Empathy program is a program for children in Primary to grade 8. This year the program is being delivered in the Grade 5/6 classroom. The program's aim is to increase empathy - the ability to understand another person's feelings. In learning about a baby, children learn to care and respect each other.
Here is Baby Emmett visiting the Grade 5/6 students.
he Aboriginal Shield Program is a program that provides substance abuse prevention and healthy lifestyles coaching to our Grade 5/6 class. This program enables children to gain a sense of cultural connection and pride, while learning to make informed healthy lifestyle choices about drug use and related activities. The program offers culturally relevant teachings. Constable Shaylene Sutherland facilitates this program for our Grade 5 and 6’s. Wela’liek Shay!
