On behalf of the teachers and staff at Macdonald Drive Junior High, a big “THANK YOU!” for all the treats brought in for Teacher Appreciation Week. The week started with donations from the Grade 7 parents:
After our two snow days, the Grade 8 and 9 parents brought in even more:
As hard as it may be to believe, these pictures don’t show all of the treats we received (and some treats did not last long enough to be in the pictures!).
Once more, a big “Thank you” from all of us here at Macdonald Drive!
Congratulations to the Grade 9 Boys Basketball team, on winning Gold against St. Peter’s at the St. Paul’s Tournament this past weekend.
Big congratulations to the Grade 7 Girls Basketball team on Winning Silver at a tournament this past weekend. This was a Grade 8/9 tournament, and the MDJH team was one of only two Grade 7 teams in the mix. Well done, students and coaches!
Congratulations as well to the Grade 7 Boys Basketball team on their Silver medals at the Leary’s Brook Invitational!
As part of a WE school, our student council has been recognized for our local and global efforts. The WE Organization in partnership with WestJet have recognized our commitment to making positive contributions in our school, our community, our country, and our world. Some of our WE campaigns have included WE create change, WE bake for change, WE are Rafiki.
WE and WestJet have provided 13 of our student council members and two teachers with an all-expenses paid trip to Montreal to attend WE Day on February 24th, 2017.
On February 23, our students will travel to Montreal to attend this national leadership event. Students will receive round-trip flights, hotel accommodations, and be paired with a group from a host school in Montreal upon arrival. They will also participate in an action planning workshop with the host school led by a WE facilitator.
Our school was the only school in our area to receive the opportunity. Many thanks go out to our school community for your continued support of student council initiatives.
