2017-18 EQAO Results for Our Lady of Lourdes CES

2017-18 EQAO Results for Our Lady of Lourdes CES

 Congratulations!

Our students continue to meet the Provincial Standard

In 5/6 Primary and Junior EQAO Assessments!!

Our results are in from last year’s EQAO results for the Primary and Junior Assessments that were administered last spring. We have much to celebrate and are very excited and proud of our school results on the provincial assessments. Our students have achieved level three or higher in 5/6 areas of the assessment this year!

Teachers and students have worked very hard to achieve the provincial expectation of Level 3 or 4. The strong partnership between staff and families has strengthened our students’ academic achievement. Although the assessments take place at the end of Grade 3 and 6, we very much believe that it is the contribution of all staff who prepares our students for this assessment. We have a School Improvement Team for Student Achievement which meets to discuss our results and make plans for further improvements to teaching and learning in order to prepare our students.

Welcome Back Flames!

We look forward to seeing everyone again in September. Our first day for grades one to eight students is Tuesday, September 4th, 2018. Similar to last year, all families are invited to meet us on the blacktop prior to our 8:30 a.m. bell. Our bus students will automatically be directed.

Teachers will be on the back blacktop with grade level signs and class lists. Students simply make their way toward their teacher. Once teachers have their attendance taken they will make their way inside. This assists our students in getting to their new classes quickly, establishing a comfortable classroom environment.

If it is raining our primary students will gather in the gym, junior students will go to the library and intermediates simply head straight upstairs to their class.   Each student will be bringing home an envelope with our first day package (see attached). First Day Letter OLOL 2018-19 .  School Cash on-line is available now for the purchase of Grade 1 – 8 agendas. 

Have a wonderful long weekend!
