MMS looks great and will be ready to go for September 6! Over the summer we moved the swing from the front of the school to the back to make lunch and recess supervision more efficient. We will be creating an outdoor classroom where the swings sat before. The grade 7 and 8 classrooms got Chromebook charging stations installed, a new sound field and projector installed in the library as well. There will be a new sidewalk being constructed in front of the school in the near future.

Please keep in touch and share this with people you feel may like to read about our school start up!

Have a great rest of your summer holiday! Keep in touch and see you soon!
