Extra Masks

Please remember to wear your mask to school. Masking is now required for outdoor activities and recess. With the colder temperatures, it is a good idea to send extra masks, as they tend to become wet and/or soiled during outdoor play.

From MPS School Council

Hello, MPS Families!

It's time to show our creativity at the WOLFE ISLAND SANTA CLAUS PARADE!

This year, the MPS float theme is...

Seven Grandfather Teachings in the Forest

The Float building team will create a Forest scene where the seven animals that represent the Anishinaabe Grandfathers’ Teachings live.

What your child(ren) and families can contribute is to draw a picture of animals on canvas. Artwork will be displayed on the Forest float. All materials are provided in a bag your kids brought home today. Read the step-by-step instruction sheet (printed copy included in the bag)!

Enjoy watching “Seven Grandfather Teachings” videos with your kids.

Saturday December 4th, 4:30pm

Start from the Fire Hall (Road 95)

  • Saturday morning - We will need a few more folks to help get this float made! The plans are done so just a matter of attaching things! Contact Kayo if you can.

  • If your child(ren) would like to sit on the float, contact Kayo by Friday Dec 3:, or Call/Text at 613-449-2499.

  • All participants must wear masks at all times. Adults will sit on float with children for safety.

Food Bank donations

As in past years, we will be collecting for the Food Bank. If you are able, please consider donating a non-perishable food item. A collection box will be available in the main foyer under the Christmas tree and in the main office.

Secret Santa gift exchange

Students will draw names on Dec 1st. We ask that gifts be brought to school by Monday, December 13th, addressed with the recipient's name only. Students will have fun guessing who their gift is from!
