Principal's Message

November/December Principal’s News – Dr. Lorraine Slater

​As I write this news report, and in looking at the calendar, I note that there are 6 weeks remaining until the winter break! Our schedule of school activities is very full for class and whole school events. I encourage you to keep close track of these activities through the weekly school messenger that will be sent to parents on Fridays, and by continuing to check your child’s teacher blog published on a weekly basis on Friday as well.
Who do you speak to if you have a concern?
Should you have a concern about your child, your first course of action is to:
 meet with your child’s classroom teacher, then if necessary,
 meet with the school principal, then if necessary,
 meet with the director of your Area office, then, if necessary, meet the appropriate senior superintendent of the CBE (the Area Director would provide information for contacting the appropriate superintendent.
Parents should treat school staff with the same high level of respect that they would like to receive from schools. Everyone should do his/ her best to communicate in an open and honest way that encourages discussion, cooperation and problem solving. The goal is to always do what is best for children.
Did you know……
​Parent/teacher interviews will take place on Thursday, November 21 from 4 pm to 8 pm and on Friday November 22 from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. Conference manager will open on Saturday, November 16 at 8:00 am for you to book your interview time These will be face-to-face interviews with your child’s teacher at which time student progress, achievement and development will be discussed.
MTS will be hosting a Scholastic Book Fair during P/T conferences. This is a perfect time to do some Christmas shopping and support the further acquisition of books for the MTS library through your purchases.
Your child’s first report card will come home BEFORE the winter break on Thursday, December 19. This is also the last day of school before the winter break. Friday, December 20 is a non-instructional day.
A notice has been sent home detailing plans for the MTS Christmas concerts. Please note that this year the grade 1& 2 classes, and the grade 3/4 choir will be presenting the concerts. The grade 3/4 classes will be sharing their talent in the spring.

We hope that the weather will remain mild through the next 6 weeks as we all persevered through the untimely cold and snow of the past few weeks.
I am looking forward to seeing you in the school as you support MTS activities before the winter break. Students return to school on Tuesday, January 7, 2020.
Wishing you a safe and relaxing holiday.​

​Dr. Lorraine Slater​
