On Tuesday, March 11th division 5 and 6 are dissecting salmon. We are hoping a few parents would be able to volunteer some of their time. We have set aside the morning on Tuesday from 9am to noon for the dissection. Please let us know if you are available to help. Thanks!
On Friday, March 7, 2014 the students at MacCorkindale are choosing to wear no socks to feel for one day what it would be like to not have a small luxury like socks. Please wear shoes! We are also asking that each student donates a pair of socks for us to give those in need. Thanks for your support!
Please remember there is no school on Friday, February 21st. I hope you all enjoy the long weekend and remember to cheer on our Canadian athletes competing in the olympics!
For those who have signed up to do the dance on Monday, February 10th:
