No School This Friday, Leadership Review, New Family Referral, Save the Dates

1. No School This Friday

There is no school this Friday, February 16 as our teachers will be participating in professional development. 
Also there is no school Monday, February 19, as it is Family Day!

2. SCSBC Leadership Review

All parents should have received a survey link last Thursday on the app. The MRCS Board and Leadership Team have asked SCSBC to assist us in conducting a leadership review and the parent survey is a big part of that. Please take the time to fill out the survey and thanks in advance for helping us develop our leadership team.

3. New Family Applications

Word of mouth is the #1 reason new families apply to our school! We currently have space in grades 1, 2, 3, 9, 11, and 12, as well as very limited space in kindergarten, grade 4 and grade 8. Let’s spread the word and fill these classes for the 2024/25 year. You can direct any interested families to start the process by filling out this admissions intake form.

Any current family or staff who makes a referral that results in a submitted application form, will receive a $25 thank you gift card!

4. Grandfriends Day

Grandfriends Day is coming up on Friday, February 23rd. There will be refreshments, chapel featuring grades K-7, followed by classroom visits for grades K-5 only. Invitations were sent home with the K-5 students, and there is a Facebook event page you can share with your loved ones as well.  

We’d love a few volunteers who wouldn’t mind helping out with the refreshments before, during and after the event. Please email Alyson if you can help that morning. 

5. Gala En Bleu 

Save the date for Saturday, April 27 and stay tuned for more info about ticket sales for upcoming Gala Dinner & Auction!

Do you own or work for a business who might be interested in sponsoring Gala En Bleu?  Please email Chantelle for more information.

Do you have items / tickets / services / vacation opportunities you would like to donate to the live or silent auction? Please email

6. Hot Lunch

This week’s hot lunch for February 15 has unfortunately been cancelled, due to vendor staffing issues. Please see last week’s app message for info about credits. 

We did have a sponsor for this lunch and we would still like to thank and recognize that sponsor.

Huge thanks to our sponsor for the February 15 hot lunch – Pitt Meadows Wellness, which offers everything from prehab to rehab to general fitness to athletic training. Mention “Wellness” when booking an initial/new Kinesiology assessment with Jason Soolaman to get your first follow-up treatment/training session for free.
