The months of December and January were very busy: storytelling & speeches, talent show, Christmas baskets, robotics, sports, trips, formal exams and much more. In addition, we also had a steady stream of educators from across Canada visiting our school. The visits were largely due to Macdonald High School being at the forefront with respect to integrating technology, adopting innovative curriculum models, and implementing extensive enrichment platforms. The visitors were also amazed by our wide range of extracurricular activities, as well as our award winning robotics program.

What was most remarkable during these visits were the wonderful comments from everyone as they walked through the school. They were particularly impressed by our student’s behavior, by how they felt welcome, and by how polite our students were. When people visit our school the words — positive vibe — school pride — togetherness - are heard time and time again. Mac kids never cease to impress.

That said, we are now into the month of February. Believe it or not, the final term has already begun and it is worth 65% of the overall mark. The educators at Mac will do their utmost to help students reach the end of cycle expectations. It is also important that parents do their part by keeping an encouraging eye on their child during homework time. Parents can also continue to verify that their child’s academic progress is on track by using the teacher websites and emails for example. When moms and dads are involved, everyone benefits.

Good luck in term three!

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. To reach the CPC website and view their guide, follow http://cpc.lbpsb.qc.ca/documents/ThinkTwicewhenPostingPhotos.pdf
