Millarville School News: Happy New Year

Welcome back! We are happy to return to learning with your students! We hope you had a restful and happy holiday season with your families.

New year – new resolutions! This month as a staff, we have resolved to focus on activities with the students that involve understanding the benefits of caring for those around you, and to be appreciative of the things we have. Think of it as a month (or more) of Valentines activities without the big pink hearts. Watch for more on this as the month continues.

January also marks the halfway point of the school year. A time to reflect and plan for addressing whole school goals and academic goals for all MCS students. A large part of our long range planning involves the Accountability Surveys mailed home to our families and taken by all students in grades 4-8 later this month. Please read the article later in the newsletter regarding this important process.

On behalf of everyone here at MCS school, I would like to express our collective sympathy to the Stabler family for the loss of Clarence. I have frequently heard that Clarence was considered the “unofficial mayor” of Millarville. He was known for his friendly, inclusive demeanour, caring attitude and as the local welcome wagon, as he was usually the first to greet new residents. You will be missed Clarence.
