Dear Mackie Families, 

The time has come when we can say our final farewell to our beloved Ms. Jackie, of Sunshine Daycare.

Please find the commemorative video below, thanks to the family of Ms. Jackie and our own Ms. Harley. Our students will be able to access and enjoy many new beautiful books in our new library for years to come. The Jackie Lewsey Learning Commons opens in September 2021, thanks to your many generous contributions in Jackie’s memory. A donation was also made to Jackie’s favorite bookstore A Different Booklist in the Lewsey family name.

Ms. Jackie is loved, respected and forever in our hearts.


Ms. Ponka

Reminder to Parents: Please do not drive your vehicle into the Mackie driveway or parking lot. The parking lot is for staff only. Please try to arrange for your children to walk to school and help keep our students safe.


If parents wish to send something in to recognize their child’s birthday etc., they are encouraged to send in something non-edible (i.e. pencils, erasers, etc.) that can be shared by all. This is to keep all students safe due to the many student allergies. Please check with your child’s teacher if you have any further questions. Thank you!

A Gentle Reminder

Parents are reminded to please keep their child home from school if they are under the weather (sore throat, tummy upset, fever). This ensures that germs & viruses do not spread. Thank you for your co-operation!
