Welcome to Macphail Memorial elementary School

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to 2020!   I hope that you all had a wonderful break with your family and friends.  The new year promises many new adventures and opportunities. 

Winter seems to constantly be teasing us.  Some days we have snow, and the next day it disappears.  Let’s hope the snow stays around long enough for everyone to enjoy the fun activities that winter brings!

In November, several of our students participated in the Royal Canadian Legion Remembrance Day contests in creating posters, poems and essays.  Some of students placed in the top 3 in the Flesherton-Markdale branch of the Legion.  Here are our winners: 

Primary:   Colour Poster – Caleb Crannie came in 3rd place;

Junior:      Black and White Poster – Sam Goheen came in 2nd place;

                 Colour Poster – Jesse Brubacher came in 3rd place;

                Poem – Averi Jaffray came in 1st place;

                Essay – Eli Leclair-Goddard came in 1st place and Jessica Knelsen came in 2nd;

Intermediate:     Colour Poster – Adania Rogerson came in 1st place.

In December, our Me to We group collected almost 700 non-perishable food items and toiletries which were given to the Love Committee.  A big thanks to all who participated. 

A reminder that at the end of this month, there is a PD Day on Friday, February 1.  We have one Spirit Day planned for the month of January.  On Friday, January 24, we are all dressing up as our favourite character from a book.  Looking forward to the creativity that this day always brings.  Please look at the monthly calendar on our website,, for this month’s activities. 

If you have any questions about items in the newsletter, don’t hesitate to contact me at:  519-924-2752 ext. 527.

Have a wonderful January!
