Roaring with Pride in 2021/22

Welcome Back LIONS!

We are so excited to be welcoming you all back to school! A warm welcome to our new students and families. We know that with everyone's positive support we will create an amazing healthy and safe learning environment for our students.

This year we are embracing the DSBN motto of "Kind-Calm-Safe-Learning" along with our school motto "WE ARE UNITY!". We will be emphasizing school community and spirit while being focused on doing our best to ensure the safety and well being of our students.

We hope you have taken some time to look at the DSBN Parent Return to School Guide. Please don't hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions or concerns as we are here to support your child's learning.

We will welcome all of our in-person students (JK- Grade 8) on Tuesday, September 7th at 9am. School will end each day at 3:20pm

Yours in Education,

Mrs. Phillips & Mrs. Parkhouse

Ancestral Land Acknowledgement use by Lincoln Centennial and the DSBN:

A Land acknowledgement is a customary practice of Indigenous
Peoples. It is a sign of respect and reciprocity when entering,
gathering and utilizing another’s space and place. Indigenous
Peoples continue this practice amongst their Nations. Today the
practice is beginning to be understood and utilized to renew,
respect, reconcile and reciprocate Indigenous and
non-Indigenous relations. The practice also serves as a reminder
of pre and post-European contact histories, treaty relations and
obligations, as well as providing information for newcomers, now
entering Indigenous territories. Today acknowledgements are
used for opening announcements in schools, events, gatherings
and meetings; that specifically recognize the Nations who hold
treaty, right and title in the territory.

We use the Land Acknowledgement at our school gatherings and use it to begin each day on the announcements.
