LMOSC Updates:

We have had a busy start to the school year with the children at LMOSC! Last month, the Leaders (grade 4-7's) prepped and made their very own Thanksgiving dinner. The children have also been busy taking part in 'Choices' twice a week. During 'Choices', the children have the opportunity to explore some exciting group activities and outlets. Some of the activities the children have enjoyed tremendously is: working with clay, playing basketball, participating in running club, and various inventive creation stem projects.

We have been focusing on fostering friendships amongst the children and getting to know each other. We have been supporting friendship connections through get-to-know-you games and projects that the children take the lead in. Many of our Leaders (grade 4 - 7) will connect with the younger children through Big Buddies. Big Buddies is a time when the younger children pair up with the Leaders to learn a new game or activity. It is a time for connection and mentoring.

This month the children have some delicious treats they would like to experiment with. Both k-3 & Leaders will. be going skating this month too! On the pro d day, the Leaders will be going to Surrey Fun Park and Climbing Gym, and the K-3's are going to Laserdome to rock climb and laser tag!
