It’s a “D-C” Day!

Welcome to the following guest staff today: Donna White for Sandra Hicken, Nicole Butler for Chantelle Beaton, Kaitlin McManus for Kirsten Walker.

Today’s Highlights:

  • Students are reminded that picture day is this coming Monday! All students (including Grade 12’s) must have their photos taken in order to produce Student IDs. Come prepared; all photos will be taken during the morning.
  • French Immersion students going to Evangeline on September 30 are asked to have 10$ in to Mme.Oehlke no later than September 29. Students are reminded to have their forms and fees paid by September 29 as well.
  • Inclusion Initiative: Learning Centre A is looking for students who can spend time with a student, assist the student in social activities at lunch or after school, engage in meaningful conversation, and model good social behaviour at school. Social modeling is an important part of your role as a peer. Demonstrating good social behaviour, positive language, and a respect for the school community is essential as a social tutor. The time commitment can be worked out between you and your student and could be a half a lunch, a full lunch, an after-school sport, or intramurals. This commitment will be honored for the school year (dependent on the activity) and should be taken seriously. These students will look forward to the time they spend with you! Please consider this important role at MRHS! It is a fantastic way to get involved in your school! Applications are available from Mrs. Power!
