Due to an unforeseen difficulty Mary Queen of Peace will delay opening the OPTIS system to schedule Parent/Teacher interviews until Monday, March 10th at 9am instead of today(Friday) morning at 9am. Sorry for any confusion.
If you have any questions please contact the school, or if you encounter any technical difficulties after the system opens, again, please contact the school.
The March Newsletter is now available! Take a look through it to see everything that is happening at the school as well as some of the accomplishments of Mary Queen of Peace’s students.
We are delighted to announce that Mary Queen of Peace has signed up for the Bravest School Challenge for this year’s Shave for the Brave in support of Young Adult Cancer Canada!
We will be hosting Shave for the Brave at this school on Friday, April 4th beginning at 12:30pm. To win this title we need to gather up as many students as possible who are willing to participate. We are also interested in having parents or community volunteers join us on this day to shave, but unfortunately our school population only can be counted toward the totals for the Bravest School Banner. This special event will be dedicated to the memory of Roxanne Howse, a very dear teacher of MQP who passed away last year due to her long courageous battle with cancer.
Our school is already registered on the Shave for the Brave website and we are now ready to accept registrations. Let the fundraising begin! If you are interested in joining us, here is the link: http://yacc.convio.net/2014sftbmqp
If you or your child is interested in participating in our Shave for the Brave Competition, you may register online at the above link above or you may obtain registration forms, pledge sheets and parental consent forms here at the office. For our all students who decide to take part, it will be necessary for them to submit a copy of their parental consent from to the office by Friday, March 14th.
For those students who do not register online, once you collect your money you may either drop it off to the office at the Young Adult Cancer Canada office (18 Argyle Street) or you may bring it to the school on Friday, April 4th from 9am-11:00am where we will have our team on hand to collect the money.
Thank you to Mr. Geoff Eaton, Ms. Ann Connolly, Ms. Tammy Puddister and Ms. Nicole O’Leary for volunteering their time to help us out. We look forward to a great event!

Let’s work together to make MQP the Bravest School!
Wednesday, February 26th was Anti-Bullying Day across Canada .We were delighted to honour this day here at MQP! We held assemblies for our students in primary and elementary and the students came away with some really strong messages about bullying and how to stand up to bullies. Our students and teachers looked absolutely amazing in their pink stand up to bullying t shirts which was made possible from many sponsors from our school community! It was a huge hit and school spirit filled the air! We appreciate your support!

The March band schedule is now available.
Be sure to print it out, stick it in your agenda or on your fridge. Maybe in March you won’t even have to use your baritone sax to weigh you down against the wind.
As a result of Kinderstart session #2, there will be no regular classes for regular kindergarten students at the school tomorrow. Parents who are attending the Kinderstart sessions with their children will proceed to the classrooms they have been assigned.
Don’t forget, teachers have a Professional Development day tomorrow. As a result there is no school for students on Friday.
