Dear Parents,  

Our grade 6-8 classes will be going swimming at Wascana Pool on the afternoon of Thursday, June 22nd, 2017. The busses will leave Jack Mackenzie at 12:45 pm and return at 3:15 pm. Please pack a towel, flip flops, sunscreen, bathing suit, water bottle, hat, mosquito repellent and sunglasses. There is a canteen at the pool if you would like to buy treats, but your child will need extra money for this.

Gr. 7/8 Farewell Note 2017 & Important Dates

May 23rd , 2017

Dear Parents,

The Grade 8 Farewell is a celebration of the end of one phase in a student’s education and the beginning of a new one.  This celebration can only take place if school and community are willing to work together.   This year the Grade 8 Farewell is scheduled for Tuesday, June 20th from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.  Teachers, parents, and administration have already begun preparations.  We are now asking for your assistance.

A reception will follow the formal part of the celebration.  We need the Grade 7 students and parents to help with the organization of the reception.  Grade 7 parents are asked to look after the dainties (please send nut free), fruit trays/ vegetable trays to be collected and served at the reception. For the reception to be a success, we need approximately three to four parents to oversee the preparations. 

Grade 7 Parents- It is important to note here that next year it will be your child transitioning from Jack MacKenzie School to the various high schools.  You and your child will then sit back and enjoy the celebrations without a concern as the Grade 7 students and parents, at that time, will be volunteering to ensure that you have a memorable evening.  Please help out in any way you can. We need to have one or two parents volunteer to be the point of contact for the Grade 7 parents and to organize the evening reception.  The volunteer(s) will need to be at the school the day of the Farewell, setting up the reception, and continuing to oversee the reception.   Please return completed forms by May 30th, 2017 to your child’s homeroom teacher.

* Please send food items to the school the morning of Tuesday, June 20th by 9:00 a.m.
