It is with great pleasure that we take this opportunity to welcome our new and returning students to Lively District Secondary School. I extend a special welcome to students attending Lively for the first time.To those returning, we wish you continued success with your academic and personal goals. We encourage each and every one of you to become involved and participate in all aspects of student life at LDSS, the “Home of the Hawks”.

Becoming the kind of person you want to be is a life-long journey, but it is made up of small steps. Every choice you make defines your character.With the help and guidance of your parents, teachers and friends we hope these choices make your journey an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

In addition to an excellent academic foundation, LDSS offers many activities, clubs, and sports to help students in grades 7 -12 to become well-rounded, mature, young people. The choices are yours to make and ours to support. The guidelines contained in this handbook are suggestions about how we can best contribute to an environment that is safe, friendly and productive. It is about having an atmosphere in our school that fosters good work, good feelings, and good memories.

We are very proud of our student’s accomplishments and as the school year progresses would love to showcase these accomplishment. For this reason, we have set up a school instagram and twitter account. We ask that you sign and return the Rainbow District School Board ‘Consent Form’ for publicity and promotional opportunities so that we can showcase your son/daughter’s accomplishments on these sites.

We look forward to the school year with great excitement. Have a wonderful year and remember that your number one priority has to be your own learning. As a staff, we will do everything we can to empower you with the skills and attitudes necessary to achieve success.

Follow us on twitter @LivelyDSS and instagram (lively_hawks) for school updates.

Welcome to the Home of the Hawks!
