Principal's Message

Admin Message - September 24, 2021

​Dear McKenzie Lake Families,
We trust that parent conferences would like to thank all those that attended conferences on Thursday and Friday.  Our experiences with virtual conferences last year, definitely contributed to everyone's increased level of comfort in navigating technology and trouble-shooting glitches.  We did miss being able to interact with families face to face, and hope that there will be those types of opportunities later on in the year.  During the second set of conferences in November, teachers will be sharing specific information related to your child's growth and areas of focus leading up to report cards in January.
This coming week is Truth & Reconciliation Week in the CBE and staff and students at McKenzie Lake School will recognize the week to honour Every Child Matters and Orange Shirt Day. Orange Shirt Day began in 2013 when residential school survivor Phyllis Webstad shared how her orange shirt was taken away on her first day at residential school. This story is an opportunity for students and staff to reflect on history, legacy and implications, to discuss stories of survival and strength and to share ways we can work together toward truth and reconciliation. It is also an opportunity to commit to commemorating the children who attended residential schools, recognizing their experiences, honoring them and sharing a collective commitment to ensure that every child matters and that each student is welcome, safe, respected and cared for in their learning community every day.  Please note that schools will be closed on Thursday for National Truth and Reconcilation Day, therefore we will be having Orange Shirt Day on Wednesday, September 29.​
 
Sincerely,
Dayna McComish
