Principal's Message

Principal Message December 2018

​Principal’s Message
 Dear Parents and Guardians,
 As the first term draws to a close, it is a time to reflect on our success and accomplishments.
·       Our Terry Fox Run was once again extremely successful, supported by parents, students and staff. MTS community raised $1,900 for cancer research. An added bonus in meeting our goal was that Mr. Van Sluys sported a “tutu” which brought a chuckle (OK - it was a big laugh) to students and teachers.
·       Our Scholastic Book Fair held during parent conferences in the month of September was highly successful. Net sales of $8,168 resulted in a credit of $5,717 for the purchase of new books for the library.
·       Intramurals for all interested students in grades 3 and 4 have taken place over the first term. The students have thoroughly enjoyed the noon hour activity and we thank Mr. Van Sluys and grade 3 and 4 teachers for organizing and supervising the activities. Stay tuned for the new year when intramurals will be offered to grade 1 and 2.
·       The grade 4 students once again presented a memorable Remembrance Day assembly that was filled with music, and the representation of story, history and events through acting and video.
·       Lacrosse residency for K-4, funded by Parent Council, (Thanks!) provided the opportunity for students to be exposed to this traditional Canadian sport
·       Fun pizza lunch returned this year and has been enjoyed by students-who appreciate a break from the routine, and by parents- who don’t have to plan lunch for that day! Thanks to the many volunteers who make this happen.
 The month of December is filled with magical moments as we prepare for our holiday concerts to share with parents. Please check the notice previously sent home, and website for details regarding the Christmas performances, dates and time.  We invite you to join us for caroling in the gym on Wednesday, December 19 at 8:30 AM when the grade ¾ choir will also be showcasing and presenting their Christmas concert.  We will end the week and the first term of school on Friday, December 21 with caroling in the gym at 8:30 AM, as we prepare for the winter break and holiday. Dismissal for all students is 12 noon on December 21st. We return to school on January 7, 2019.
 As the festive season approaches, all of us at McKenzie Towne School would like to say thank-you to all of you for the wonderful support you give us. We look forward to our continued collaboration and strong relationships that we have with you in 2019. Messages of peace, joy and hope surround us at this happy time. It is in this spirit that I extend to you, on behalf of all the staff, best wishes for a joyous holiday season.
 Sincerely,
Dr. Lorraine Slater​
