Parent Survey for Mental Health Capacity Building in Our School
Dear Parents, Guardians and Family of Winston Churchill school students,
The Mental Health Capacity Building program in our school “SHINE” is conducting a survey as directed by Alberta Health Services. This short 2-3 minute survey will help in determining the impact, if any, the mental health prevention programs delivered in our schools will have in the understanding and importance of mental health prevention programs. The post survey will be administered in 2020 when our students have had programming taught to them regarding this. Your participation is greatly appreciated as we work together to support our students, children and families.

School Community Council News and Events
Thanks to everyone for supporting our staff appreciation week and helping with supervision while we provided staff with lunch! At our April meeting we discussed buying drama lights for the stage, sending out information and order forms for Mabel's Labels in the June report cards, running a dunk tank station for the end of year Fun Day, and doing advertising for the free Parent Information Night with speaker Dr. Jodi Carrington.
The parent portion of the Our School survey had 122 responses from our parents! There was some great feedback for our School Community Council in planning for next year. Remember our next meeting and Annual General Meeting/Elections will be held at 11:45 AM on Thursday, May 30th in the library. Everyone is welcome!
Celebration of Music
Over 70 students sang their hearts out at the LPSD annual Celebration of Music at the Lloydminster Comprehensive High School on Monday, May 6th. The two pieces were directed by Mrs. Deters-Nowosad and were first prepared for the Lloydminster Kiwanis Music Festival where the choir won an award for their performance. Great job Wildcats!
UT education students learn robotics from legendary students
APRIL 10, 2019
The tables turned for university transfer (UT) students pursuing a bachelor of education degree. As the pupils of local tech-savvy Grade 6 students, they received a lesson in robotics. (See link for the rest of the Lakeland College article, https://www.lakelandcollege.ca/feature-stories/university-transfer/students-lpsd-tech-force.aspx , 2019)
Contributing to our Community
Winston Churchill students collected all of the loonies, toonies, and spare change they could find to help raise money for the Lloydminster Big Brothers Big Sisters Association of Lloydminster. The organization provides after-school care, in-school mentors, and Big Brother or Big Sister matches for many children in Lloydminster.
This year students raised over $1700.00 through the BBBS Wii Bowling, held March 19th and 20th, and the "Pie in the Eye" fundraiser. Over 460 pies were thrown at the energetic staff. Way to go Winston!
