Celebration of Learning – Student-led Conference

 

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

Conference time is quickly approaching. This an important part of our school’s evaluation and reporting process. We invite you to attend a Celebration of Learning, which is a student-led conference that will take place on March 22, 2017 from 4:00 – 7:00 PM.

 

The goal of Celebration of Learning is to offer concrete and meaningful examples of your child’s progress. This type of conference provides students with an opportunity to assume responsibility for informing their parents of how they are doing while engaging them in communicating the learning process. Your child will lead you through a variety of activities that have been designed to help him/her demonstrate their progress in various subject areas.

 

It is not necessary to have a set schedule for this type of conference, as several students can go through the activities at the same time.  Teachers will be present in the classroom to answer any questions that you may have.

 

Celebration of Learning typically takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.  Should your child’s teacher feel that it is necessary to have a more in-depth meeting, they will contact you.  The morning of Friday, March 24, 2017 has been set aside for these meetings.  As always, if you would like to meet with your child’s teacher feel free to contact the school at any time.

 

We hope you will be able to join us for this opportunity to celebrate your child’s growth and development!

 

Sincerely,

 

 

 

Russ Clarke

Principal

Attention Gr. 8 Parents: Please watch for this note. Thank you!

Grade 8 Yearbook

 

Hello Grade 8 students and families.  It’s hard to believe that this is your last year at Jack Mackenzie!  To help remember you time together here, we would like to know if you would be interested in ordering a yearbook and would ask your assistance in collecting photos for the book.

 

We would be using www.mixbook.com to create the yearbook.   Books would be available mid July so that photos from the graduation ceremony, trip, and remaining school year can be included.  The approximate cost would be $40 per book (based on at least 20 students ordering a 60 page book).

 

Before we proceed, we are wondering how many students would be interested in ordering a yearbook.  Can you please either complete the bottom portion of this letter to show your interest and return it to your teacher, or send an email to jmac.yearbook@gmail.com, by February 9th, advising YES or NO?

 

To create the yearbook, we would also need some help from each student/family: 

 

We plan to include classroom photos from K to Gr 8 as well as photos from various extra-curricular activities, sports, & field trips that our students have participated in through the years, etc.   If you have photos from chaperoning a Jack Mac field trip, Christmas concerts, music concerts, sports practices/games, etc, which you are willing to share, please email them to jmac.yearbook@gmail.com (please also advise during which year/grade the photo was taken).  Any photos which include Mr. Mackenzie would be greatly appreciated!

 

We would also like each student to create one page containing photos/info “about me”.  This page might contain 6-10 photos including:

-         

Baby/toddler photos

-         

Kindergarten/grade 1 photo as well as photos through the years

-         

Photos showing student’s extra-curricular activities/other hobbies/interests

-         

Student Q & A (eg. Favorite memories of Jack Mackenzie school, favorite memories of Mr Mackenzie, favorite activities/hobbies, what I want to do when I graduate, etc….)                  (more details to follow)

 

There are a couple of ways each student would be able to complete this “about me” page:

1)    

Preferred option - If the household has or is willing to create a free Mixbook account, the yearbook committee would share a template page, which the student can complete, then share back to the committee.

2)    

If any households are not able to create a free Mixbook account, they can email photos/info for their student’s “about me” page.  We will upload the photos to Mixbook and one of our yearbook committee members can assist the student to create their page, or create it for them.

We hope that with a small contribution from each family, we can create a book of memories that each of our students can treasure for years.

 

Our Grade 8 teachers will also be looking for a couple students from each classroom who would be interested in helping to create the yearbook.

 

To help us anticipate how many families would be interested in purchasing a yearbook, please complete the form below by indicating YES or NO to the question below (or email your answer to jmac.yearbook@gmail.com)

 

Thank you!

Linda Forster & Candice Oremba

Grade 8 Yearbook Parent Helpers

 

 

Please answer the question below & return this portion to your teacher by
Thursday, February 9th (or email your response to jmac.yearbook@gmail.com):

 

 

Would your family be interested in ordering a graduation
yearbook for your Grade 8 student (approx. cost $40 - $45)?               YES                 NO
