I hope everyone had a restful summer and enjoyed some quality family time.
At Macdonald High school, we strive for excellence in all areas of school life. We are committed to creating a safe environment where every child has the opportunity to reach his or her personal, academic and physical potential.
Throughout the 2017-18 academic year we will continue to improve our Mobile Labs/BYOD Technology Program and our diverse curriculum models that have brought about remarkable successes over the past few years. The Mac staff is also in the midst of implementing many exciting new projects, including Google Classroom as well as level-wide cross-curricular projects. Students are encouraged to participate in the many extra-curricular activities available including: sports, robotics, shows, trips, clubs and so much more. In addition, with the help of our creative students, we will definitively come up with a few other surprising endeavors in the coming months. Stay tuned...
Mac's accomplishments are no accident. They are the result of our dedicated educators, our supportive parent community and most of all, our wonderful students. Their perseverance and their "Mac Pride" never cease to amaze me.
As I embark upon my seventh season as principal of the “Small school with the big heart”, I am truly looking forward to what will surely be a challenging year but also a fun and memorable one.
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
