A Message from the Principal

We can hardly believe that December is already upon us!

Winter seems to be here to stay so it's time to start thinking about inclement weather plans. When we have stormy weather in the morning;

•     Please remember to exercise caution when sending walkers out to school.  •     Make sure your children are dressed for the weather.
•     Call safe arrival 519-924-2752 and leave a message if you are keeping your child home - if busses are cancelled, bus riders do not need to call safe arrival. Please see instructions for how to access information directly from the bus companies at the bottom of the page and in our school newsletters.•     Remember that bus announcements and school closure information will be announced on all local radio stations. Announcements are usually made between 6:30am and 8:00am on CFOS 560AM, 106.5FM, CKNX 920AM, 101.7FM, 94.5 THE BULL, 92.3 THE DOCK and 97.9 THE BEACH.

Please note: Please be sure your child always has a healthy lunch packed each day – when the weather is unpredictable there may be times when we do not allow our older students to go downtown/ leave the school property during lunch time to ensure their safety.

There is always lots happening at Macphail - be sure to check out our calendar for upcoming special events and know that you are always welcome to join in on the fun!

Our school play - The Hills was a huge success! Thank you to all who came out to support this event!

On Monday, December 18th and Tuesday, December 19th at 1:30pm (on both days) we will be hosting our Holiday Concert. All of our Kindergarten classes, Grade 1-Meulensteen, 1-Harrington, 1/2 Reed-Landry, 1/2 Graham and 2 McGowan along with the Intermediate Concert Band and a few other musical numbers will be entertaining us in preparation for the holiday season. Hope you can come!

Tis the season of giving. Me to We is asking our Tigers to bring in donations of toiletries, canned goods, cereal, hats and mitts for our local Love Committee to hand out to those in need this Christmas. Please send in what you can and help to make someone else's Christmas happier!

We wish all of our Macphail families a safe and happy holiday season!

As always, we continue to work, learn and play together ensuring that our learners today will become leaders tomorrow!
