Every school community in the SWLSB is unique with many different and exciting opportunities for students. ASL works in partnership with different schools engaged in like minded work to help students learn from each other. We share best practices in order to build and foster sustainable student and community growth.

This page is for leaders in their school community to work on their documents, access field trip information, and to access and participate in community events.


Link learning. Link leadership. Link the community.


All working group members have access to their folder.

Group projects, activity, and field trip information is available outside of the folders.

Terry Fox Elementary School Leadership Club is collecting shoes to help Shoe Bank Canada put shoes on Canadians in need.

Laval, Quebec (February 5, 2018): Attention anyone with a closet: Those shoes you no longer use are desperately needed to help put shoes on Canadians in need.

That’s the message being delivered by Terry Fox Elementary School Leadership Club, which has launched a drive to collect 400 shoes to help the poor. Used and new shoes can be dropped off at Terry Fox Elementary School at 900 des Lacasse, Laval, H7K 3V9.

The shoes that The Leadership Club collects will be delivered to Shoe Bank Canada, a not-for-profit social enterprise committed to ensuring that no Canadian should want for a decent pair of shoes. The organization has distributed more than 40,000 pairs of shoes across Canada to date.
