Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,

We hope that all of our Stingers had a great weekend and are well and healthy.  

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

Pride Month

During the month of June, we will celebrate and recognize Pride Month.  Not only is this a time to recognize the achievements and contributions of LGBTQ2S+ communities but to also reflect on our own impact in creating a safe and inclusive environment where everyone feels welcomed and has a place.  During the month of June, students at Storrington will be focusing on inclusivity.  We have some whole school activities planned where students will learn about inclusivity and what we can do as a school community to ensure that everyone feels included and welcome. 


National Indigenous History Month

June is National Indigenous History Month.  In recognizing National Indigenous History Month, we celebrate and honour the diversity, culture and history of Indigenous peoples in Canada.  Together, we all play a part in creating a positive and inclusive environment where everyone is accepted and diversity is honoured.

National Accessibility Week

The week of May 29 to June 2 is National Accessibility Week.  It is a week dedicated to celebrating the valuable contributions and leadership of Canadians with disabilities, highlight the work of individuals, organizations and communities who are removing barriers, and reflect on our ongoing efforts to become a better, more accessible, more disability inclusive Canada. Every year National Accessibility Week begins on the last Sunday in May.  On Wednesday, May 31, we ask all our Stingers to wear a red shirt to show their support for accessibility and inclusion.

Napanee and Kington 2023 Pride Parades

Limestone District School Board is excited to participate in both the Napanee and Kingston 2023 Pride Parades! Students, staff, and families are ALL invited to join LDSB at one or both parades.
