Welcome to Macphail Memorial elementary School

Hello Tiger Families/Bonjour les Familles de Tigres!

We always refer to this time of year as AprilMayJune.  It may be 3 months combined together, but it often feels like the fastest month of the year.  Now that we’re in May, sometimes we think we’re on the homestretch, when in fact, we still have 1/5 of the school year remaining.  This is a time where learning is consolidated and students are able to show their growth and the knowledge that they have obtained and how they are applying it.  It really is the most exciting time of the year.  Please keep an eye out for more exciting news related to end of year celebrations and school trips.

April was a month full of great athletics. Both of MAC’s basketball teams took home the April championship and are excited for the BW championship coming up in May.  Both teams demonstrated outstanding sportsmanship, leadership, and athleticism.  It was a proud moment for the entire school, to have this great group of students representing the school positively.  Way to go Tigers!

April’s theme was Global Citizenship.  As a school, we had a blue and yellow day to show support for Ukrainian families moving to the area to help ensure that students know that they are welcome here at MAC and in the greater community.  Lots of discussions are happening for ways we can support and welcome newcomers to Canada.  We also recognized earth week with four different colored spirit days.  Students are starting to think about areas and needs within Grey Bruce County as well as within Canada and globally and how we can use this thought and inquiry to become great global citizens. 

May is all about mental health.  Covid has brought out an even greater need for support.  To help us remove the stigma, we will show support by wearing blue every Wednesday throughout the month of May.  If your child is in need of some support connected to mental well- being, please connect with your child’s classroom teacher and we will move forward to support.  Never are you on your own.  Bluewater has many supports that we can connect you child with to help support all- round well- being.

The fan favorite of “Comfie Cozy Day” will be every Monday.  Friday Funnies will continue as will MAC Attack Fridays (wear your school gear/school colors).  Pizza Wednesday continues!  Keep an eye out for emails towards the end of the month to purchase pizza for the month of June.  Pizza sales for the months of May and June will support end of year celebrations.

Have questions about your student returning to school after being ill?  The Public Health Nurse Advisory Line is there to help and can be reached at (519) 376- 9420 ext 3110.

Always working together to be better.  Your partners in education/Vos partenaires en education,

Sue and Lisa
