Football Comes to Hatzic Middle School and Heritage Park Middle School
For the past eleven years the Mission Roadrunner Football team has worked hard to establish itself as one of the perennial contenders for the AA championships. During that time the program has earned four provincial championships at various levels and three other appearances in the final game. These results were achieved due to the efforts of the athletes, coaches and parents. With the creation of two middle schools in 2015, it is the opportune time to introduce football programs at Hatzic and Heritage Park Middle Schools. These programs will be open to all students who will be in grades 7 or 8 in September. Grade 9 students will have the option of playing at their Middle School or for the Mission junior varsity team.
With your help, we can start new traditions at our Middle Schools and continue the program that was established 11 years ago at Mission Secondary. For more information, please pick up a brochure at your child's school office and return the completed registration forms to the school they will be attending in September.
Registering prior to the end of this school year would be appreciated as it would allow us to order the necessary equipment in time.

French Immersion School Configuration
The Board of Education is considering changes to the school configuration of Ecole Christine Morrison and Ecole Mission Central Elementary Schools.
It has been proposed to join the two French Immersion Programs into a single-track school resulting in changes for both the English and French families of both schools.
A public round table forum was held on April 8, 2015 at Ecole Mission Central. Feedback and questions gathered were compiled and shared with Trustees at a meeting on April 26, 2015.
A presentation was shared at the Town Hall Meeting on April 29, 2015 at Ecole Christine Morrison.
At this point and time, the Board has received a significant amount of feedback via emails, letters and telephone calls and will be continuing through the process of deliberations before making a final decision. Submissions can still be sent to: Tracy.Orobko@mpsd.ca
* The decision will be made during the 2015-2016 school year and as such, the school year remains status quo *
School Locator Changed
NOTE: School Locator has been changed on our website to reflect the boundaries for the 2015-2016 school year.
