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
AFTER SCHOOL SAFETY
There has been a safety concern after school while parents are waiting for their children and buses are entering the driveway to bus loading zone. After much thought andconsideration we are implementing a SAFE ZONE for parents and students to wait safely in. The SAFE ZONE will be marked by lime green pylons. Please remain in the SAFE ZONE and use the crosswalks to move safely through the parking lot. This will take effect on Monday, November 9, 2015. Thank you for your support with creating a safe school for all.
