Principal’s Message May 2018

Meadowlark Christian School is a caring community committed to developing excellence in:
Learning through academics
Living in Christ
Leading by serving others
Loving with the strength of character

Spring has finally sprung!! Bring on the cleansing rain showers and green grass.
11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience. Colossians 1:11

Before we jump into May, I need to share how the Grade 9 Belize Mission Trip students lived out “Leading by serving others.” It is truly amazing to hear these students articulate how their time in Belize has impacted their lives. This years group brought over 25 boxes of supplies consisting of over $800 in school supplies and over $1000 dollars in books for school libraries. You may have seen an excerpt on Global News last week. In case you missed it, here is the link: Our YEG at Night: Leaving a Legacy in Belize

At MCS another way we show “Living in Christ” is through scripture memory work. A num-ber of students have already completed the scripture work, but for those still working on it, not to worry, you have until May 31st. Even though there is only two months left, we are not slowing down. This time of year means we are we are planning classes and timetables for next year while at the same time keeping our eyes on this year’s goals by preparing this years students so they can finish this year strong.

Pre-enrolment is usually only talked about leading up to April, however, I want to share with all of you that we able to accommodate every family that registered at MCS through the Pre-enrolment process. That is great news! We will have a number of new MCS families to welcome into our fold in September.

“Learning through academics” does not ease up as we approach the end of the year. You will see a transition between May and June as we shift from learning new material to re-viewing and solidifying what we have learned in the previous nine months. May brings the first segment, Part A, of the Language Arts Provincial Achievement Tests for students in Grade 6 and 9. The dates students will be writing Part A are:

  • Grade 6: May 8, 2018
  • Grade 9: May 10, 2018
