Dr. G. J. MacGillivray Public School has had a successful start to the 2015-2016 school year!
Character Makes a Difference
Monthly character traits are introduced and modelled throughout our school by both staff and students. Students are recognized by receiving a Wildcat paw and will hear their name on the morning announcements to celebrate!
Courage: We highlighted students who were able to face challenges directly and see them as opportunities. We celebrated those who thought, spoke and acted to make our school a better place.
Perseverance: This month we are looking for students who finish what they start even when it is difficult, those who do not give up when faced with a challenge or obstacle and those who complete all tasks and assignments to the best of their ability.
Respect: In support of Remberance Day, we are focusing on respect. We are looking for students who demonstrate polite, courteous and caring behaviour. They value themselves and others, treating people with dignity and uphold their rights. They protect property and the environment.
Optimism: This month we are looking for students that demonstrate a positive attitude and see challenges as opportunities. They think, speak and act to make the world a better place and have hope for the future.
Please check calendar for other exciting events in December.
