We had the pleasure of hosting a visit from our Superintendent, Bonnie Talbot. During her visits, she likes to meet informally with staff and students. She was impressed with all the extracurricular events happening at Ross R. and the learning that is taking place in our building.
Our students have been busy participating in various activities such as skating at the local Hillsburgh Arena, our recent Ross R. Olympics Day, snow shoeing, and intramurals. The Swim to Survive Program is coming up for our Grade three students and a visit to the Island Lake Conservation Area for the Maple Syrup Festival for our Grade one class. Many classes have had a visit from our Scientists in the School Program

As a Professional Learning Community, the staff at Ross R MacKay is committed to providing learning experiences that:
- acknowledge student interest
- seek out higher level thinking processes
- reflect community involvement, and
- provide for individual support based on student needs and abilities
I urge and encourage you to become involved in Ross R. MacKay. Teachers are eager to have parental support in the classroom. Your presence would be valued. Whether it is each day or once a month, there are plenty of opportunities. Even if you could spare half an hour just to read to a child, you'll make a big difference in the life of a child.
