Good afternoon Parents/Guardians,
Chilly end to the week to be sure. Today students took part in our first Track day at McKenzie Highlands. Today's activities also helped Track coaches to build their teams for the upcoming meet in May.
As part of our Emergency Preparedness Planning, we will be having our first Fire and Lock Down Drills in the new building next week. Teachers and staff will be reviewing with students the procedures and expectations for both events. Calgary Police Service will be present for the Lock Down drill.
Are you moving over the summer? Will your student be attending a different school in the fall? If you know that your child(ren) will not be attending McKenzie Highlands this upcoming September, could you please let the office know by Monday April 24th.

Deadline to purchase a yearbook for the first year at McKenzie Highlands is Friday April 28th. Yearbooks cost $35 and will be delivered to students in September. We chose the late date for this first year so we could get as much content from our new building as possible into the book. If you are not sure if your student has a yearbook on order, have your student come to the office to check with me. I can add the yearbook, and you can pay online; send a cheque or cash to the office; or come into the office and pay debit / credit.
