Old man winter is knocking at the door and term one is already a thing of the past. As is the norm at Mac, the first few months of school were very busy; from the many clubs such as Robotics, the Nature Club, the Improv Team, the Dance Team to the play auditions and much more. We also had many successful events: Remembrance Day, Spirit Week, Halloween Pep Rally, Zombie Apocalypse (very scary and intense!), Mac Camp (over 200 students!) and Open House (350 student volunteers!).

In addition, we had a very important visitor to Mac in October, Michael Fullan. Mr. Fullan is a global educational leadership director and a renowned pedagogue. Macdonald High school was chosen because we are considered to be at the forefront with respect to integrating technology, adopting innovative curriculum models, and implementing extensive enrichment platforms. During his visit and at our Open House, where over 700 people were in attendance, faculty and students portrayed their overall high academic results, their community spirit and of course, their immense school pride with a passion that will undoubtedly ensure Mac’s success for many years to come.

Mac kids are simply the best.

That being stated, term two, for whatever reason, always seems to fly by. It is important that parents and students verify teacher websites/notifications and make sure that projects are completed on time. More importantly, to continue encouraging and supporting your child.

It's all about the kids

Think Twice when Posting Photos

As the school year continues and the time for concerts, plays and other events arrives, we should take note of issues surrounding privacy and the posting of student photos on-line. The Central Parents Committee (CPC) of the Lester B. Pearson School Board has drafted a brief “Parent to Parent Guide” on this issue.
