Jack MacKenzie's Cross Country Team is up and RUNNING!


Jack MacKenzie School is in the process of putting together their Cross Country Running team for the 2015 Fall season.  Students from ages 8 and up are invited to come out and take part.  Practices will be as follows:


            Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10:15 recesses

            Students will need to come to at least 2 practices each week.

Our first practice will be on Friday, September 4th.


The first Cross Country Meet is scheduled for Wednesday, September 23rd  at Douglas Park Track, with the top 25 finishers in each age category moving on to the final race on Wednesday, September 30th..


Race times are as follows:


(These groups will run a shorter course – 1.2 km)

4:55 p.m. – Boys 8 years old

5:00 p.m. -  Girls 8 years old


5:05 p.m. – Boys 9 years old

5:10 p.m. – Girls 9 years old


(These groups will run a longer course – 2 km)

5;50 p.m. – Girls 13 and over.


As in the past, parents are responsible to transport their son/daughter to and from Douglas Park. 


Parking is very limited. First consideration will be for the buses transporting students to the event. To limit the number of private vehicles parents should try to car pool or as an alternative, you could park in the church parking lot across the overpass and walk to the track.

Children returning to school on September 1 will be thrilled to see our new Playground has been installed!  Thank you to our amazing SCC volunteers, led by Sarah Haidey, who were so integral to this process.  Thank you also to Mr Rodrigue, one of our parents and owner of Baltic homes, who generously donated time, skilled labourers, machinery and cement to make this project a reality.  Mr MacKenzie was present at the installation and put his stamp of approval on the project!

Welcome Back to Jack MacKenzie!


We are so excited to see our Coyotes return for the Fall!

The first day of school for the 2015 - 2016school year will be Tuesday, September 1.

All returning Jack MacKenzie students will line up outside before the 8:53 bell.  Staff will be greeting the children on the playground just before 8:40 am, and will have classlists should students forget which class they are heading into. Students who are new to Jack MacKenzie may go to the front foyer where they will be directed to their classroom.   

Following the bell, students will proceed to their classrooms to begin their day.

Our school community will assemble in the gym at 9:45 for an Assembly with Mr MacKenzie who will bring greetings to the students.


We look forward to seeing our students and are excited for the 2015 - 2016 school year to be underway!

We will miss these wonderful teachers, who will be embarking on new challenges in September.  We have appreciated the care and compassion that you have brought to your classroom.  Thank you for all you have done!  We will miss you.

School Start

The Report Card package distributed on Thursday will include a supply list for next year.  There is an option to purchase items from the supply list via 'School Start'.  This is a company that will fill your supply list and send all the materials on it DIRECTLY to your door.  This is a fundraiser for the school, and is a win win!  You will find that you are getting a good price on the school supplies, while the school earns a donation to support our classrooms.  We piloted this program last year with the Grade 1 classes and we are pleased to offer this school wide this year.  We hope that you take advantage of this opportunity to make your Back to School transition easier.
