Issue 2, October 2013



Welcome!

The month of October is jam packed with activities at MCS! In this issue, we cover some important information on new policies on contacting your children at school. We also provide in- depth contact options to get in touch with teachers. In this side column, important dates are marked, and there are updates from around the school at the bottom of the page.

Contacting Students

The office is receiving many phone calls regarding non-emergency messages for students and changes in after-school transportation. In order to minimize the load on our hard-working office admins, please arrange your child's after school transportation prior to the beginning of the day, especially if they will not be taking the bus. Instead of calling in a transportation change, please send a signed and dated note with your child  stating the day's change. Your child can give the note to their teacher.
 
To minimize class interruptions, as well as to minimize phone and physical office traffick, the office will no longer relay messages to students during class time unless it is an emergency. If parents/guardians absolutely need to get in contact with students for non-emergency reasons, the office will send messages to teachers via our internal electronic messaging system. Students will then be allowed to contact parents after school, if needed.

Homework & Teacher Contact

Students with internet access should remember to check the homework websites for assignment updates and missed work. Students may also email teachers for assignment help. If a student does not have internet access, students will need to find some 'buddies' in the class that they can contact in the event of missed school or for homework help. Buddies can also bring you missed work. Teachers are generally available after school to give homework help, but arrangements should be made before hand just in case. For parents of elementary students, if your child is absent, please ensure that you are aware of the work they missed and help your child to complete it at home. For high school students, it is not the teacher's responsibility to get students caught up on work during class time. It is the high school student's responsibility to get their missed assignments at least a week ahead of time (in the event of a planned absence), or to arrange to have assignments delivered (in the case of illness). In unforeseen circumstances, students may contact teachers at school or via email to arrange for alternate assignment submissions or to get homework help.

Memory Verse

This month's memory verse comes from the book of John, chapter 1.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."

2013 Sports.

The Fall Soccer season is well under way. Regular practises continue Tuesdays and Fridays at the soccer park from 3pm-4:30pm, unless the field is snow-covered. If you are in grades 7-12, and are interested in forming a curling team, please contact Mr. McGuire. Basketball season is nearly upon us, which means it's almost time to cheer on your MCS Rams! Contact coach Slykhuis or Mr. Klassen (boys), Mr. Macgregor (girls) and Mr. Sanford (Junior team) for more information on joining!
