Request for Feedback – Family Survey 2018-19

School Development Surveys are conducted annually to gather feedback from students, staff, and parents/guardians to inform the school development process. The survey results will be provided to your child’s school and used with other data to identify the school’s strengths and challenges. Your child’s school will then create and implement a plan to build on successes and address areas of challenge.

The survey is anonymous, which means that we cannot connect your survey responses to you. We encourage everyone to participate so that we have the most accurate representation of family perceptions at your school.

The Family Survey will be available on February 11, 2019. Please complete the survey by March 15, 2019 by clicking here to access the survey. If you do not have internet access, you may contact your school to arrange access to a school computer or mobile device for survey completion.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the school development surveys, please contact:

Thank you for your participation and for being a valued member of your school community.

Emergency Food Drive

As you may have heard, there was a devastating fire at the Community Food Sharing Association warehouse yesterday. The food supply has been entirely destroyed. Because we care so much at Macdonald Drive Junior High, we would like to help! Tomorrow, students are asked to bring non-perishable food items to school. We will make sure it goes toward re-stocking the shelves and supporting families in need across Newfoundland and Labrador.

For those who may wish to lend more support, there will be a food drive on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. during the Irish Newfoundland Show on VOCM. The public can make donations in person at Coleman’s Food Centres on Newfoundland Drive in St. John’s and Centennial Street in Mount Pearl. Monetary donations can be made to VOCM Cares online.

Thank you for your continued support!

MDJH at the Rooms
