Hello LSK students and parents! The weather is getting warmer and some restrictions are being lifted. However, we should all still make sure we are being smart and safe. Even though the school has been on lockdown there has still been some learning taking place through Google Classroom: the grade seven students have been working on algebra and solving equations; the grade eight students are continuing to work on algebra and patterns; and the grade nine students are continuing work on polynomials. I’m looking forward to seeing all my students in school as soon as it is safe to do so. Until then, be safe, be kind, and be well.
Hello LSK students and parents!
Firstly, I hope that everyone is feeling safe and healthy during this unprecedented time in our modern history. It has been a challenge for everyone. Even though the school has been on lockdown there has still been a good amount of learning taking place through Google Classroom: the grade seven students have been working on adding and subtracting fractions; the grade eight students have been working on algebra and patterns; and the grade nine students are continuing work on polynomials.
I’m looking forward to seeing all my students in school as soon as it is safe to do so. Until then, be safe, be kind, and be well.

Thanks to all the Grade 7-9 students who have sent me all the work you've done. I'm glad to see how well you're doing in your independent learning. There will be more assignments coming by the end of the week so keep an eye out in your gmail. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.
Hi parents. I've posted some assignments in grade 7, 8, & 9 Google classrooms for the week. I have also uploaded the grade level textbook in each classroom so it is only a click away. Some students will be working from the following website: https://ca.ixl.com/math/. I have included your child's username and password to access the site along with some outcomes I would like them to complete. If there are any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to ask. I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe.
This month the grade seven class will be learning how to add and subtract positive fractions and mixed numbers and will learn to use fractions to read gauges, shop, measure, etc. The grade eight class have been solving problems involving percents, ratios and rates. They have been using ratios and rates to compare numbers and quantities and comparing prices when shopping. The grade nine class will be learning about polynomials which are the building blocks of algebra. They will be using polynomials to model real-world situations in business, science, medicine and engineering.
