IN PERSON and VIRTUAL conferences available

Greetings Parents and Guardians of MPS students,

We are trying something new for our November conferences.

This year we will be hosting IN PERSON parent/guardian/student/teacher conferences on the evening of Thursday, November 24, from 5 pm until 8 pm.

Teachers will be located in the gymnasiums and foyer and you will be able to book one, 10 minute appointment per teacher starting on November 17 at 4 pm.

We recommend giving yourself 10 minutes in between appointments, if possible to allow for transitions from teacher to teacher.

Alternatively, we will be offering VIRTUAL parent/guardian/student/teacher conferences via TEAMS during the day on Friday, November 25, from 9 am until 3 pm.

You will be able to book one 10 minute virtual conference per teacher starting on November 18 at 4 pm.

Back to School at MPS

Greetings fellow Wolverines, Parents and Guardians,

I hope this finds you well and that you are all enjoying the last days of summer break before we are back at school.

I wanted to ease a little bit of the anticipation and excitement by letting you know that homeroom teachers will be reaching out by email or by telephone if needed to give you all the pertinent back to school information. They will be doing this on August 29, 30 or 31 if not sooner. Information about which entry doors to use and where to go on the first day and all other important information will be provided then, in order to have a smooth start to the year. The first day is September 01 and this will be a full day of school with yellow busing as well. ​

Traffick and Safety

Greetings MPS Community Members and Families,

I know that the safety and security of students is a top concern for Parents and Guardians. At Mountain Park School, we take student safety very seriously. The wellbeing of our students is a top priority for us as well. Over the past several days, I have been out monitoring the cross-walks at the corner of Mt. Douglas Close and Mt. McKenzie Drive. What has become apparent is that during morning drop off and afternoon pick up, that the traffic at this intersection is highly congested and very busy. This has created safety concerns for our students as they cross both streets at this intersection.

In order to help alleviate these concerns, I would like to request that parents and guardians avoid entering Mt. Douglas Close when dropping off and/or picking up their students. There is plenty of space along Mt. McKenzie Drive to stop and drop off/pick up your student(s) safely. One suggestion is to designate a pre-determined location with your student(s) along Mt. McKenzie Drive for the rest of the year, keeping in mind to avoid the yellow school bus zone. This would help prevent a large number of vehicles entering and leaving Mt. Douglas Close during peak times and limit the number of vehicles moving through both cross-walks, making crossing these streets safer for our students.

I want to thank you in advance for working with us to keep our students safe. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

David Sparrow, Principal​​

We are asking you to view the report card through MyCBE/PowerSchool. Once logged in, you will see an additional tab titled “Report Card”. Select this tab to view the report card. Should you wish to have a printed report card, please contact the main office at the school to arrange a time for you to safely collect it from the school during school hours.

Thank You!​

Thank You - Conferences

Greetings MPS Families,

Thank you for your patience as we navigated through another round of online parent conferences. For the most part, they were very successful.

A reminder that we send out a "weekly update" via email every Friday during the school year with important information and dates.

Have a Healthy and Restful Summer!

​Dear Wolverines,

It is hard to believe that the school year is already coming to a close. This year has truly been a whirlwind and like no other!  As we wrap up, I would like to personally extend a “thank you” to our incredible school staff members who work very hard on a daily basis to guide our students and help them flourish. We would be hard pressed to find a more compassionate, resilient and devoted group of teachers.  I would also like to thank our Parent Council for the support they have provided to help enrich our school and build a sense of community and belonging for our students. To all our parents and guardians, I would like to say thank you for trusting us with your children and for your continued support in order to provide a safe and inclusive environment and a quality education for our students. On behalf of the staff at Mountain Park School we wish everyone a very cheerful, healthy and safe summer break.  We look forward to hearing about all the fun and exciting learning experiences your families have enjoyed over the summer!  

Next year will be an exiting year of renewal and revival!

Please click this link for up to date 2021-2022 BACK TO SCHOOL Information.

Until then, Stay healthy and safe,

David Sparrow​, Principal
