May 6-8

Hello Students and Parents,

I hope you are enjoying the warmer weather and still trying to do some school work each day!

Today I have included a few fun ideas for students who enjoy eating, running in the forest, and learning about safety.


Next week I should be able to share some information around the plans for Welcome to Kindergarten and Leaving Ceremony. Thank you for patience. We are approved to continue our planting project with the Tree Canada Grant and plans are underway to purchase native trees and shrubs. All families will be given the opportunity to participate hands on in the coming weeks- stay tuned!


Have a wonderful Wednesday,


Mrs. Roberts

It's Mental Health Week- May 4-8

Class Placement for 2020-2021 School Year

As we begin to approach the end of the year, planning for next year is starting. Next year our school will grow to have 8 divisions with one of the Grade 4/5 classes taking over the Portable for their classroom.


Planning and building classes are very comprehensive activities and something we spend a lot of time on at RC MacDonald. We will begin with teachers individually looking at all students learning needs and peer relationships. Once this process is completed, we begin to look at building classes with respect to balancing learning and social-emotional needs and doing our best for each of our 163 students and taking into consideration the rules for class size and composition.


If there are specific learning or peer issues that you would like the school to know of, please feel free to write or email Mrs. Roberts a letter and she will include it as a part of the deliberations into our class building process. Specific teacher requests will not be considered in our class building. “
