Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

One of the most important ways parents/guardians and community members can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on the school council. Under the School Act, a school council is a collective association designed to advise the principal and the CBE Board of Trustees on matters related to the school. School councils have legislated advisory and decision-making authority. They are different from Parent Societies & Associations, whose main function is to raise funds for the school.​​ You can find more details in the CBE School Council Handbook​.​​​​

School Council

All McKenzie Lake parents are invited to attend the monthly meetings of our school council. The School Council is comprised of both parents and staff representatives. Our goal is to work together to create a positive learning environment for our children. Through the council, we can strengthen communication between home and school. We discuss and plan for our school’s future. We also support special events, such as our Welcome BBQ and Family Dance, that provide opportunities to come together as a school community . School Council generally promotes one fund-raiser per year that raises funds to support activities that can't be paid with Casino dollars. Highlights, dates and times of future meetings are published on this website.

RT @UsihChristopher: Province seeking feedback through a survey (link embedded in document). “The feedback will help us refine the draft K-6 curriculum before it is implemented across the province. All elementary students will be learning from the new curriculum in 2022-23.”

RT @Andrea_sm3: Our grade 4 HUB buddies and Miss. Stone taught us how to make catapults as part of their study on simple machines. @mckenzie_lake @Justine18836875 #wearecbe #cbehub @dmmccomish @KenzieRushton

RT @MlsSkill: Our EES classes have been working hard to make their own story based on "Dear Zoo." They are superstars at recreating their sentences in our predictable chart writing work! @mckenzie_lake #wearecbe #inclusion
