Pride Month – June
At Lakeview we are always celebrating diversity, inclusion, acceptance and individuality.
The month of June is a time for all in K-12 education throughout B.C. to hear more about Pride month and recognize and celebrate the contributions of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
We know that each child expresses themselves in their own unique way and that 2SLGBTQIA+ students, staff and families still face discrimination in our education system. Our hard work continues so we can ensure every school is a place where all students, staff and families feel safe and included.

We have many specific learning opportunities planned for June, including: lessons around the history of the Pride Flag, morning announcements defining SOGI inclusive terminology, some chalk drawing, and lessons around the history of clothing choices. We look forward to the raising of the Pride flag for the week of June 19 to 23rd.
