Principal’s Message October 2013

Dear Parents,

Wow! For me the first month of school seemed to come and go in a blur and I am sure that many of you feel the same way. As both a parent of two children in school and a teacher, I find the month of September always a very busy time. Some events on the September MCS calendar included: assemblies, field trips, the MCS Family BBQ, school photos, Fall Youth Retreat at Camp Nakamun, Parent Council and Class Theme day. I have met many people associated with this wonderful school and the message I hear from Meadowlark Christian students, parents, and community members is consistent: Meadowlark Christian is a great school!

Thanksgiving is a short time away and when I reflect back on my first month here, I realize I have so much to be thankful for:

  • A staff that is committed to ensuring that all students will be successful.
  • Parents who volunteer their time and energy supporting the mission of this school.
  • Students who are striving to do the best they can and who demonstrate through their behaviour a commitment to Learning, Living in Christ, Leading, and Loving with strength of character.
  • The MCS Foundation whose board members support the mission and values of our community.
  • Excellent achievement and survey results!
  • People who pray for us, the work we do, and the people of our community.

These are only a few of the many things we all have to be thankful for and I hope that no matter how busy life is, you take a moment to be thankful for all your blessings. Ephesians 5:20 reminds us to give thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
