Welcome

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As the school year draws to a close, Mac has shown significant progress in many academic areas. It has been a great year, highlighted by our unique and very successful Mobile Lab/BYOD technology program, --A “whole school” approach to integrating technology --

With the help and guidance of our educators, digital learning at all levels and in all subjects has become the norm. Our students and teachers are now involved in the sharing of pedagogical information with their peers, with students and teachers elsewhere in Quebec, elsewhere in Canada and even around the world. We are not only providing our students with all the necessary tools for successful learning in the 21st century; Macdonald High School now serves as a model to others with regards to the integration of technology in the classroom.

On another positive note, the official MELS transcripts show superb class of 2015, graduating results. 93% of our Secondary 5 students obtained their diplôme d’études secondaires. Of that number, 97% percent of the students who applied to college or to post-secondary trade school were accepted. Congratulations to students and staff for all your hard work; it was definitely worth it.

Receiving those types of results is a nice way to officially start summer. I hope everyone involved in the Mac community will be able to enjoy some time off and I thank you once again for your support and for the significant role you play in making Mac an exciting and wonderful school.

Time to find out what my friends
with swimming pools
have been up to since last summer...”

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
