Welcome to Lac La Hache Elementary School Free Press news. This is our first article, so enjoy!

The skating rink is now open again. Every Friday, LLH Elementary School is going skating. Also every Thursday there will be a free hot lunch. The school is icy but surely is warm.

Every second Tuesday it will be hot dog day or pizza. The cost is $2.50. It comes with a hot dog or pizza, and depending on the Tuesday, also a drink and fruit.

Christmas concert and more

On Dec. 15, the Christmas concert will be at the Community Hall in Lac la Hache. Doors open at 5p.m. There is a spaghetti dinner which costs $15 a ticket but kids are free.

There are now 24 hardworking kids at LLH Elementary School.

Every Monday there is a free breakfast program.

LLH has a Volunteer Fire Department (VFD) Christmas Hamper. Food donations (nonperishable) may be dropped off at the school.

All About the School

The students are doing great work. The teachers are doing their jobs and teaching us well. We have great news that there are three new kids: Kayla Gilbert, Marley Kinder and last and youngest, Cody Kinder.

I think they’re having a great time.


On Thursday, Nov. 28, LLH Elementary School had two presentations. One was about surviving when you’re lost in the woods. You must tell your parents always when you’re going somewhere. It’s called Hug a Tree and Survive.

The second one was Virginia Bowman, a nurse, coming in and talking about germs on your hands and, when you sneeze, you should always wash your hands to prevent getting germs. If you don’t, you’ll get sick. She brought in some fake germs and a black light. We put the fake germs on our hands.

You couldn’t see the germs without the light but when we put the black light on it the germs were all over. Then we all washed our hands to see how well we got the germs off, now we have clean hands. That was our Free Press school news hope you enjoyed reading it.
