A Little Reminder
Attendance in school is the first step towards being successful in school. Attendance is one of the focuses of the ETSB’s dropout prevention program. If you are in school you are able to participate in all classes, and ask questions for clarification. If you are in school you are able to take all tests and quizzes along with all other students. There are no worries about trying to catch up with what was missed, or trying to make appointments with teachers to make-up time for tests missed.
That being said, children do get sick and need to stay home. Should this be the case, it is very important to call the school at 450-263-3772 ext. 23425 and leave a clear message stating your child’s name and day of absence. If it is not possible to call, it is important to write a note that your child then brings to the central office on the date of his or her return to school.
Please talk to your children about skipping school once they are on school property. This is a matter of safety. Sometimes an emergency can occur at your home or at school, and we would not able to reach your children because they are skipping school.
Massey-Vanier's 2012 campaign was an outstanding success. It started with a powerful assembly with guest speaker Karl Corbeil, father of two M-V students, who spoke about his battle with lymphoma. He was followed by a group of Secondary V students who spoke about how cancer has impacted their lives. The resolution to make a difference in the fight against cancer was carried through during the next several weeks as students fundraised from door-to-door.
A "Tree of Hope" was created in the 4th floor plaza and students placed leaves containing messages on its empty branches. It wasn't long before the tree came to life with orange and gold leaves of memory and hope.
The money was added up each week, and when all was said and done, the students and staff of Massey-Vanier had collected $10,232.69, an astounding amount of money!
