Albert McMahon is a busy and vibrant learning environment, offering a well-rounded program of academics, fine arts and athletics to a population of 385 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. We are situated in a growing neighbourhood and we welcome new students regularly. Visitors to our school routinely comment on our excellently behaved and courteous students. We take pride in our inclusive school culture, and we have programs in place to meet the needs of all students. Albert McMahon's behaviour support program is entitled the S.H.A.R.P. Program, an acronym for Safe, Helpful, Accountable and Respectful and Positive. Our SWAT (Students with an Aptitude for Teaching) grade 5 and 6 leaders can be found with their little reading buddies each day for fifteen minutes of reading tutor time. The Peer Counselling program involves training senior students in communication and leadership skills. The Peer Counsellors act as friends, helpers and resource people to students in the school. In addition, students who help others benefit by developing a greater sense of responsibility, self-confidence, and an understanding of others. Extra-curricular sports are popular at McMahon, with cross country running, basketball, volleyball, and track and field teams. We also have a busy schedule of intramural floor hockey for junior and senior students.
There were 20 witches who needed to get to the witches' convention in California. 12 lost their brooms so they needed to broom pool. There were 8 brooms, but no more than 4 could fit on a broom and no less than 2. Explain with pictures, words and/or numbers how you are going to get them all there.
Kathy had fun baking lots of cookies. She left them on a plate to cool while she went shopping with her dad. Her brother saw the cookies and took 1/2 of them to his Scout meeting. Her sister took 2/3 of teh remaining cookies to share with her friends. Finally, her mom took 1/2 of the remaining cookies to her Book Club meeting. When Kathy and her dad got home, there were only 5 cookies left on the plate. How many cookies had Kathy baked?

In case of problematic weather arriving and causing school closure decisions, district-wide or partial, please click on this link: http://www.mpsd.ca. ***NEW*** You will see an area where you can now sign up with the school district to get an email when the schools are closed. Please take advantage of this new service. Decisions about school schedules and bus route changes are generally made before 6:30 a.m. This allows for the most current weather information to factor into the decision.
