March Newsletter 2020February - Short month, BIG PROJECTS

At the beginning of February “Louise the Scientist” came and gave us a good idea of what our Sky Science unit will be like as we are heading into this unit right now. Did you know that if you were to shrink our solar system Pluto will just be a dot? And in the middle of Jupiter, there is a really big hurricane happening all the time. Now we have fully moved to our unit Sky

    Principal's Message

    March Already? How is that possible?

    ​I would like to thank the students, staff and parents for all of their hard work and commitment to their school.  We are blessed to have so many people come together to improve the learning opportunities for our students.
    Nellie McClung School is so fortunate to have such supportive and committed parent volunteer groups.  It is wonderful to see all of the parents who come out to the different events at the school or who give of their time to go on field trips.  Without your gift of time, many of our extra-curricular or co-curricular events would not be able to happen. I would also like to thank all of the parents who come out to the School Council meetings and offer their voice into the decision making process.  Nellie McClung School is grounded in democratic principles and we value the different voices within our community.  The next School Council meeting is April 16th at 6:00 pm.  Everyone is welcome.  
    Our parents raise money for the school and they spend money on excellent items for the school.  Our “Fill Our Buckets” campaign was a great success.  Look at some of the wonderful items our Parent Fundraising Society just purchased for the school.
    Our School Council needs your help.  Our biggest fundraiser every 18 months is our casino.  Currently our Volunteer Coordinator is looking for volunteers to sign up.  All positions must be filled in the next month.  The casino is held at Cash Casino; 4040 Blackfoot Trail S.E..  Newbies are welcome as no experience is required.  Please go to our sign-up genius and sign-up.
    Like all of the school months, March promises to be an exciting and learning filled month.  From trips to Open Minds, to floor hockey tournaments, to Bridge Club Tournament, to Movie Night, to the production of the Wicked Witch of the Wetlands, to Student-Led Conferences to Spring Break our kids, teachers and parents are going to be busy exploring and learning.  Please have a good look at the calendar as it is packed full this month.
    As always, I welcome any feedback that you may have.  If you have any questions, concerns or comments please call me on my cell at 587-777-6331, e-mail me at or just stop in for a visit.
