FROM THE DEN - MARCH 1, 2021

Principal's Message

Spring is around the corner and it is hard to believe. I am proud of the efforts our staff and students have put in to ensure safety and learning continue to be our top priorities; however, we are not out of the woods yet. I encourage everyone to stay strong with our restrictions and re-focus if needed.


I often ask the staff and students, “what restrictions and changes we have this year would be beneficial in the future?” I would like to pose the same question to you as parents and caregivers: What has the school done differently this year that you would like us to keep, even if it is in a different capacity? I would welcome phone calls or emails (eldon.germann@lskysd.ca).


We recently celebrated the 100th day of school, an exciting accomplishment given this years additional challenges. We also recently recognized Pink Shirt day. Many staff and students wore pink shirts and talked about the importance to stand up for what is right, especially in bullying situations. This is always a great first step, but everyone must look at themselves before they look at others. Do we behave how we want others to?


I would like to thank the SCC, families of Macklin School, Living Sky School Division, and Board of Education, who spoiled the staff at Macklin School over staff appreciation week. Each and every year we feel truly appreciated. The fact that you found creative ways to make us feel appreciated in this trying time shows us how much we are truly appreciated. Thank you!


This has, and will continue to be, a unique and challenging year. We are looking for creative ways to plan grad, awards, keep people heathy in all capacities, and most importantly engaged in learning. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to a time when we can gather again.

Dates to Remember!!!

Pink Shirt Day

On Wednesday - February 24th, students and staff wore pink in recognition of Pink Shirt Day which began in 2007 when a grade nine student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. Two students rallied their peers to wear pink shirts to school the next day to send a message to the bullies. Pink Shirt Day started because two boys chose to do something about bullying rather than stand by and watch it happen.

Grade 4 Class Valentines

The grade four class prepared valentine's for their senior buddies to let them know they are thinking of them too.
