It’s a “D-C” Day!

Happy (early) Birthday to Gracee Gallant who will be celebrating her birthday tomorrow! 

Welcome to the following guest staff: Lori Campbell for Carla Richards, Adam Clow for Kristina McLane (am), Jessica Campbell for Christie Beck, Nicole Butler for Karen Malone

Reminder:  Parent Teachers are being held today from 6:00 to 8:30pm and again on Friday from 9:00am to 12:00 noon and from 1:00 to 3:00pm. There will be no classes for students tomorrow. 

SAAD WEEK wraps up. Here’s a few stats to think about today:

  • Road crashes continue to be a leading cause of death among teenagers. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among 16 to 25 year olds, and alcohol and/or drugs are a factor in 55% of those crashes.
  • The brain is not fully developed until the early 20s, and alcohol can cause long-term damage to a growing brain.
  • Cell phones are one of the most common distractions for drivers. Drivers engaged in text messaging on a cellular phone are 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash or near crash event compared with non-distracted drivers.
  • Winner of $25 gas card for submitting a contract for life is…Isaac MacNeill.
  • Winner of $10 McDonald’s card for wearing red is…Katelyn Visser.
  • SADD members would like to thank everyone who took the time to participate.

Today’s Highlights:

  • Hope you didn’t forget Student Council’s homeroom competition!  The homeroom who collects the most food donations for the food bank will win a pizza party.  This is the last day of the competition.
  • The Social Justice and Diversity Club is holding a bake sale today. Cupcakes, cookies and even cake pops will be for sale in the Cafeteria.
  • Yearbook orders will be taken at Parent Teacher Interviews on Thursday evening and Friday morning. Cost is $50; payment can be made by cash or by cheque made payable to MRHS. Yearbooks can also be ordered on-line using a credit card. The link is available on the school’s website. Please note the deadline for ordering a yearbook is February 17, 2017. Remember, if you don’t order one, you won’t get one!
  • Students are reminded that all Student and Athletic fees must be paid, as well as uniforms returned, in order to purchase a dance ticket. Those students planning on going to the Christmas dance this year should make sure all fees are paid and sports uniforms returned, to avoid disappointment when trying to purchase your dance ticket! See below for the extensive list of students with outstanding Athletic items.
