Welcome to Macphail Memorial elementary School

Hello Tiger Families/Bonjour les Familles de Tigres!

And just like that, summer is here!  It's been an absolute pleasure being MAC's principal over the past 2 years.  Thank you for having me, working with me and for all of your kind words and support as we navigated Covid- 19.  As challenging as a pandemic was and is, I wouldn't have wanted to navigate it with anyone other than each of you.  THANK YOU.

As you reflect on this past year and where we're all heading for the 2022- 23 school year, please consider Robert Pirsig's words below.  This was shared with me when I was 15, and it stuck with me.  Enjoy the journey, not just the destination.

Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. The reality of your own nature should determine the speed. If you become restless, speed up. If you become winded, slow down. You climb the mountain in an equilibrium between restlessness and exhaustion. Then, when you are no longer thinking ahead, each footstep isn’t just a means to an an end but a unique event in itself. This leaf has jagged edges. This rock looks loose. From this place the snow is less visible, even though closer. These are things you should notice anyway. To live only for some future goal is shallow. It’s the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top. 

Please join me in welcoming back Lisa Russell as MAC's vice principal and give warm greetings to Eron Strong, MAC's new principal.  

Take great care.  Enjoy your summer,

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

Sue and Lisa
