Principal's Message

Admin Message - November 25, 2022

​Dear McKenzie Lake Families,​​
We hope that everyone takes some time to enjoy the warmer temperatures this weekend, as the forecast looks as though next week will be a chilly one.  Although the morning temperatures look as though students will be indoors for most of the week, when the temperatures get warmer than -20oC, students will go outside for a fresh air break.   Please ensure they come prepared with all their winter wear!
It was great to see parents and guardians on Thursday and Friday as they attended conferences.  We saw many students teaching their parents how to play the spoons at the music station that was set up in the Snow Gallery, and proudly showing their parents their work and art.  When you arrived, you likely noticed all the Food Bank boxes set up at the main entrance.  Our Grade 3 students have organized the Food Bank Drive for MLS students, and everyone is encouraged to bring donations to fill the boxes over the next couple weeks.
We would like to give a special Thank You to our School Council who provided teachers with supper prior to our Thursday evening conferences! 
The month of December has several Spirit Days planned related to our Book Fair and the holiday season.  Each day has been outlined below and students are invited to dress up according to the theme.
School Entry Doors
When dropping off your children in the morning, students do not need to go to their assigned grade door and can use any entrance.  Using the closest door during morning drop off is an option available to everyone.  Doors open to students at 7:50am, and school starts at 8:00am.
Scholastic Book Fair
Mrs. Knox has organized a Book Fair for students on December 8 & 9.  Classes will be scheduled a time to visit the book fair for purchases on one of those two days, so students can bring money on those days if they would like to purchase items.  If parents want to visit the school to view and purchase books, Mrs. Knox will keep the Book Fair open after school on Friday, December 9 from 12:15-2:15pm.  There will be opportunities for families to purchase books online and/or in person.  Online sales will be available from December 3-12.
