A Message from the Principal

Wiarton Willie has determined that we will have an early spring – let’s hope we don’t have to endure this cold winter weather for too much longer!
Report cards will be sent home on Friday, February 24th. There is not a formal interview time arranged for this reporting period, however, if you wish to discuss any questions or concerns regarding your child’s progress please be sure to return page three of the report card with a check mark indicating “parent requests an interview”.

As always, February is shaping up to be another busy month at Macphail. We hope this month is full of kindness, caring and team work for you and your family.
