M.V. Beattie Talent Show

Screen Shot 2020-05-03 at 1.58.43 PM.pngGood afternoon, Wildcat Nation!  The day has come, the time is right, we have the talent, so you just need to sit back and celebrate the courage of our M.V. Beattie students.  In a typical year, we would have auditions for our gr.4-6 intermediate students, and then up to 6-10 contestants would perform in front of our packed gymnasium.  This year we have opened it up to K-6 and have more contestants from primary than intermediate!  We are very proud of all of our students and each contestant will receive recognition for their performances.  I would welcome you ,our audience, to let them know how great they are.  While we cannot put this ‘mixed tape’ video onto Facebook, we will enable comments on Facebook, so you can share your kind words there!

I will be sending out an email within the next hour that will provide you with the website and protected password so that you will be able to enjoy this special event.

Thanks to our contestants, their families and Mrs. Gadicke (the brains behind the set up) for sharing their talents.  Go Wildcats!


Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

Winners.jpgDuring these times, it is even more important to share good news with our Wildcat Nation!  So, today we wanted to show off the happy faces of two of our finest: Dexter and Holly.  They were recently recognized by the Royal Canadian Legion for their outstanding Remembrance Day poem and poster.  A trip to the mail box can at times  provide some welcome surprises, and on this occasion Holly and Dexter found a letter of congratulations, a certificate of achievement…and a cheque!

Thank you Holly.  Thank you Dexter.  In your accomplishment, you have reminded us of the significance of this contest: LEST WE FORGET!

Day of Mourning

National Day of MourningToday we remember and honour those lives lost or injured due to work related accidents. It is also a time to renew commitments for improving Health and Safety in the workplace.  To our hard working Wildcat Parents/Guardians, stay safe, and thank you for all that you do for our community.

Wildcat Wednesdays!

Wildcat Wednesdays.jpgI asked our staff to share some photos to celebrate Wildcat Wednesdays!  We have photos  of our staff at work and play in their school colours.  If you would like to have your photo (in Wildcat colours) included next Wednesday, please send me your pics by Wednesday morning.  It is great to “see” so many of our students online in class meetings and accessing remote learning opportunities… Parents, Grandparents, Guardians and older siblings, Thank You  for all that you are doing to support the learning of our MVB kids!  Together, we will continue to grow in our ability to effectively support our students’ learning.

*Reminder* For those students who are wishing to participate in the MVB Talent Show, tomorrow afternoon is the deadline to send in your “application.” An application is simply an email that tells us that your son/daughter would like to perform and a description of the talent they will share with us.  More information will be shared with the participants early next week. 

*Survey*  I sent out a survey to parents/guardians yesterday afternoon, and have already received 60 replies.  Thanks for taking the time to provide us with your feedback!

Happy Thursday!
