Principal’s Message November 2014

Dear Parents,

November has arrived and once again we made it through the month of October without snow on the ground! Having this great weather is such a blessing as it allows our students to continue playing outdoors and being active, during their recess breaks and in their physical education classes – which I know has a very positive impact on their learning, health and overall well-being.

I want to thank all of the parents and guardians who have already pre-booked their parent/teacher interviews upcoming on Tuesday, November 4 & Wednesday, November 5, from 3:45 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. If you haven’t yet called the office to schedule interviews, please do so as we value your partnership in education and the support you give to your children and to the staff at Meadowlark Christian School. I also want to take this opportunity to remind you that the first full progress report card for this year will be posted to SchoolZone on Friday, November 28. Please also remember that we will be having an extended fall break this year with no school on Friday, November 7 through Tuesday, November 11.

A chapel will be held on Thursday, November 6 starting at 10:40 a.m. to observe Remembrance Day. This provides us with an opportunity to reflect and honour the sacrifices of all those who have served this great country in past conflicts and who continue to work for peace today. Recent world events and tragic stories in Ottawa and Montreal remind us of the sacrifices made by others to keep our world free and safe. At MCS, we teach our students to be empathetic Christian leaders in our society – dedicated to seeking peace, justice, hope and charity. Christ taught us a message of peace, modelled respect for others and to value the dignity and worth of every person. Pray for these values to prosper in our community and also for those parts of our world where currently there is no peace.

Hot Lunch Day Update

The regularly scheduled Hot Lunch Day will occur as planned this week.

Those students who ordered wraps and drinks from Booster Juice for Thursday, Nov. 22 will still receive them, regardless of whether they are attending classes at MCS or Westlawn.

Arrangements have been made for students at both schools (MCS and Westlawn) to receive their pre-ordered lunches on the regularly scheduled day.

Thank you to the volunteers who stepped up to make this happen.

School Reopens Wednesday for K-6

Dear Parents and Guardians:

It’s business as usual for elementary school students at Meadowlark Christian School!

Kindergarten to Grade 6 students will be returning to regular classes at Meadowlark Christian School on Wednesday, November 21.

Junior high students will have to wait until Monday, November 26 to return to the Meadowlark Christian School building.

Although the air quality has been repeatedly tested and declared safe in the junior high wing, there is still a slight smoke odour in that area of the school. Students who are hypersensitive to their environment may be affected by this odour, so all junior high students will remain at Westlawn Junior High School for the remainder of the week.

For those students riding the yellow bus, the schedule will remain the same.

Thank you for your co-operation, support and understanding during this challenging time for us.


Mr. D. Sweeney
