Working together with Southern Health-Santé Sud and the Manitoba Lung Association,  Mitchell Middle School is raising awareness and enrolling our grade 8 students to commit to living smoke-free. Grade 8 students will be developing a smoke-free pledge to commit to a healthy lifestyle and to help build a positive school culture.

To continue to foster a positive school culture and healthy living we have the opportunity to bring in Keith Macpherson to present. He is a global leader in community leadership involving health and wellness. He believes that having a positive mindset is key to living a healthy and happy life. Keith has spent over twenty years touring globally as a speaker and performer in countries including Canada, The United States, Mexico, Africa, Dubai and The United Kingdom.

The focus of Mr. Macpherson’s presentation will be on the following:

  • Mental health and well being
  • Physical Health
  • Kindness
  • Positive and Growth Mindset

These ideals align well with Mitchell Middle School’s school plan. Specifically:

By June 2018, all MMS students will understand, be able to articulate and perform their role(s) within the Ultimate Warrior Core Values to gain a sense of belonging to MMS (Be Ready to Learn (5), Be Ready to Help (6), Be Ready to Participate (7), Be Ready to Serve (8) and engagement data will increase 5% at each grade level. 

By June 2018, All MMS students will have an increased appreciation for mathematics and show characteristics of a positive mathematical mindset.

Since Mr. Macpherson’s message fits so well to our school goals we are extending his presentation to all students at Mitchell Middle School.

On Thursday, March 15, 2018 Mr. Macpherson will be presenting to:

  • Grade 8 students in the Library from 1:15 pm – 2:15 pm
  • Grade 5 – 7 students in the gym from 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

As always, parents/guardians are welcome to join us for this presentation.

Please contact Mr. Mead with any questions.
