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.
Imagine the Canucks playing 28 games in the next two months. Imagine also their wins are only in grroups of 4 and their losses are in groups of 3. How many groups of 4 and 3 will the Canucks have?
What trophy will the Canucks win after two months?
Imagine Henrik Sedin scoring 70 points over the next 28 Canuck games, more than any other player in the NHL. What is his average number of points per game? If he scores just over twice as many assists as goals, what did he score of each?
What trophy would he likely win?

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. The final decision to send students to school resides with parents since they best know the road and weather conditions in their respective areas.
