Back to School!

It's almost that time of year again!  Back to school is less than one week away.  The bus route information should be posted on the school doors this coming week.  Other back to school information can be found on the McKenzie Towne School CBE website.  Agendas will be on-line this school year.  If you are interested in seeing how another school has done on-line agendas, you can visit Cranston's school website.

The first meeting of the McKenzie Towne School Council and AGM for the Parent Association is scheduled for September 26th.  Please watch for agendas to come out soon.  These are important meetings and we encourage all parents to attend.  Many of the executive positions will be coming up for election at these meetings.  If you are interested in serving on the executive of either the MTSC or MTSPA and would like more information, please contact our Chair at  Terms for executive positions are typically 2 years, however, we do not wish to limit people, so if you are interested but can only commit for 1 year, please let Sherri know. 

Our long awaited casino dates are set for November 15 and 16th at the Deerfoot Inn and Casino.  Some information was sent home already at the end of the last school year and more information will be going out in the near future.  We will be looking for a number of volunteers to work shifts at the casino.  This casino could earn in excess of $60,000 for the Parent Association, which will have a direct benefit on the students, but cannot happen without support from volunteers. 

In addition to plans for the Casino, be on the lookout for SUTP book sales beginning in September.  Order forms will go home with students early in the school year.  $10 of each book sold goes directly to the Parent Association.  This has been a successful fundraiser for our school in the past and we look forward to your continued support. 

Enjoy the rest of your summer and we look forward to seeing you for another great year at McKenzie Towne School!
