Please Slow Down

We have received several complaints from our community neighbours regarding our parent vehicles driving too quickly and not fully stopping at the crosswalks and stop signs. For the streets adjacent to the school, the maximum speed is 30 km/h and vehicles must come to a complete stop at crosswalks and stop signs. Please help us be good neighbours by driving slowly and cautiously on the roads around MRCS.

Indigenous Connections

The Métis sash has historical purpose and contemporary symbolic meaning. Our Grade 4/5 students were order-discoverers as they designed harmony into their own sash patterns. With attention to colour combinations and other details, the students were also excellent beauty-creators!
