MDJH’s popular video game club will be starting up again this Friday. This is a drop-in club where students can engage in friendly competition, good sportsmanship, and socializing. The club will run from 2:15 to 4:15 in the LRC, and all students are to be picked up by 4:30.
Students are reminded that if they bring in their own games, consoles or accessories, they should be dropped off to the office before school or locked securely in a locker. The school is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Please note that there will be no Game Club on Friday, October 7th due to the Professional Development Day.

Auditions for Jazz Band will take place on Tuesday, September 20th. Interested students who play sax, trumpet, trombone, bass guitar and drum kit should sign up outside Mrs. Beresford’s room.
On Friday, students were given sheets with their current demographic information (address, contact names and phone numbers, etc.). In order for us to have our files up-to-date, we ask that if there are any changes or corrections that you make these changes on these sheets and return them to the homeroom teacher.
These sheets also contain the Computer Use and Media Release agreements. These agreements need to be signed and handed in to the school as soon as possible, as we cannot give students access to the school’s computer network until they are returned.
If the demographic sheets have become lost or misplaced, please contact the school office to get it re-issued.
We had a great first day back at Macdonald Drive Junior High. During the grade level assemblies, we updated students on some revised policies:
- School doors will not be open until 7:45 am. Students are not permitted to enter the building before that time.
- Students are only to enter through the Bus Entrance. They will not be permitted to enter through the Main / Teacher entrance.
- The Bus Entrance doors will be locked at 8:05 – the start of homeroom period. Students arriving after this time are to go to the Main / Teacher entrance to sign in.
Students were also given an information sheet to take home (click here to download a copy). Please complete this sheet and return to the homeroom teachers by Friday.
Once again, welcome!
