Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,

We hope that all our Stingers had a great March Break and were able to get lots of rest and relaxation.  We look forward to seeing all our Stingers on Monday morning. 

Please see the information below in this week’s Week at a Glance.  

Dress Green Day

Although we can’t spend St. Paddy’s Day together, we are going to celebrate the day on Monday, March 20.  To celebrate and recognize the day, we encourage all students to wear anything green.  

LDSB Special Education Review Survey

Thank you to the students and families who were able to participate in the first stage of the Limestone District School Board’s Special Education Review through ThoughtExchange. 

We had over 2900 participants and 3572 thoughts shared. These participants rated over 60,000 thoughts and the input will be so valuable to our future planning. 

Limestone’s Educational Services leadership team will now begin to analyze the feedback from the review. Additionally, we will be meeting with small focus groups of students and staff to explore the data together over the next few months. 

The second stage of the review will commence at the end of April when we open the survey to all Limestone students, families and staff, as well as community members and partners. This new audience will receive the same question that we asked you and have the same opportunity to rate and review the other answers provided. 

If you have any questions regarding Limestone’s Special Education programming, or specific to this Special Education Review, please visit the Special Education Review page on the LDSB website, contact Michael Blackburn by e-mail at [email protected] or speak to your school office directly.
