Lakeview Public School Full Day Kinderfarten Info Night

Lakeview Public School is inviting families to come hear about how the Full Day Kindergarten program will be implemented at an info session this Thursday, January 23 at 6:00-7:00PM in the school's gym.

Following some performances by our "Percu-chant" and Advanced ukelele students, representatives from the OCDSB will share important information about Early Learning, Full Day Kindergarten and Extended Day Programs (before/afterschool care program). Information will also include preliminary details on the construction of a new addition to Lakeview P.S. to accommodate these programs.

This is a great opportunity to hear about why Lakeview is a great choice for your child as an Early French Immersion public school with a Full-Day program.

You can contact the school at 613-828-8077 for more information.  You can also visit Lakeview School Council's website at:  www.lakeviewschoolcouncil.ca after the session to see a summary of the information that was provided.

Life is a highway...so drive safely!

Did you know that, in 2011, at least 66 per cent of child passengers in car seats were not properly secured? That's pretty scary considering motor vehicle collisions are one of Ottawa's leading causes of injuries (Source: City of Ottawa).

But do not fear! There are resources to help you ensure that your child's car seat is properly installed! In fact, this weekend, there will be a clinic right in Bell's Corners:

BEST FIT Car Seat Clinic
January 19th, 1-4pm
Fire Station 43 (3845 Old Richmond Road)
$35 + HST
More information and registration: Ottawa Safety Council

If you can't make it to the clinic, S.E.A.T.S for Kids offers other clinics around the city for $30. Spots fill up quickly, and there is usually a waiting list.

Don't want to go to a clinic? There is lots of information online about car seat safety. The Canadian Forum on Car-seat.org is a great place to ask questions and get information from certified car seat installation technicians.
