Believe it or not the halfway point of the school year has already come and gone. Thanks to the dedicated Mac staff and the hard work of our students, we are pleased to report a positive first half of the school year.
Many of our new and on-going programs and initiatives continue to surpass our expectations. The constant renewal and upgrades of the over 400 devices that are available to our students continues to ensure the effectiveness of our Mobile Labs/BYOD program. Mac is also moving forward with GAFE technology (Google Apps for Education) in order to support differentiated teaching practices and student learning styles. Furthermore, using Google Classroom and Google Keep, the Grade Seven teachers are pleased with the successful progression of our collaborative secondary I cross-curricular educational project. None of these amazing endeavors, however, would be possible without the pedagogical expertise of our educators and the keen engagement of our students.
That being stated, term three is worth 60% of the overall mark. You can be sure that teachers will be challenging their students in order to help them attain the expected end of cycle competencies. Parents, please continue encouraging and remaining actively involved in your child’s education. Good luck to everyone in the final term!
It's all about the kids
N.B. A special mention goes out to our Robotics Team who once again received many awards at the Central Robotics Competition (CRC) in early February including first place for video and web design. Congratulations to Mr. Duckworth, Mr. Dornan, parent volunteers and the amazing Mac Robotics students.

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
