IMG_2621Today the LCES second graders enjoyed some amazing animals including a Ringtail Lemur (king Julian) from the Madagascar and a small endangered Capuchin monkey aka ” Carlo’s the comedian” from the Rain forest of South America. From Africa we had a Prickly hedgehog, a beautiful Ball Python from the Savannah Plains of Africa, and a Bearded Dragon from the hot desert region of Australia. We also had a duck and a fluffy rabbit.

Thank you to all the staff, parents, and volunteers that worked to make Grizzly Games a success. We had a blast!!


Yearbooks will be distributed Friday, May 6th. Extra yearbooks will be on sale after that date for $21.


In January, Tingler Insurance Co. sponsored a ceiling tile art contest for CCPS students to celebrate the upcoming opening of their new office in Ladysmith.  The Tinglers’ assigned various themes for each participating school and the one for LCES was “HEALTH”.  In March, third grader Scarlett Smith’s design was chosen as the winner to represent LCES.  Scarlett then had to recreate her 8”x8” design sketch onto one of Tingler’s 2’x2’ ceiling tiles!  After 2 weeks of sketching and painting, the ceiling tile was delivered to the Tingler’s in time for their April 2nd installation party to thank all of the student winners, their families and the art teachers.  Congratulations Scarlett!!
