Programs, Services

McCaig Elementary offers a strong English academic program in accordance with the Quebec Education Program.

All students succeed in an integrated class setting.

Thirty percent (30%) of the curriculum is taught in French - French Language Instruction, Social Studies and Art.

The Nelson Math program and teacher-prepared resources support the competencies of the mathematics curriculum.

In addition, our music program is renowned to be an enriching component of each child's education.

  • The student's program of study is rounded off with an extensive physical education program.

   
Peanut and nut free school
  • McCaig is a peanut and nut free school.  We request parents to support this policy as there are many children in the school who are severely allergic to nuts and peanut by-products. All lunches and snacks should be peanut and nut free e.g. no peanut butter sandwiches, Nutella, etc.

To ensure the smooth running of our library, we ask the following:

  • Please make note of your child’s library day and be sure that the book(s) are returned on time.                                          
  • Parents will be charged for any lost or damaged books.
   
Cafeteria

All students are welcome to eat their lunch at the school in the cafeteria. Supervision is provided by Lunchroom Supervisors.  These supervisors have all the authority of any staff member.  Students eat in two shifts. Normally, when one group of students is eating their lunch, the other group is engaged in extra curricular activities or is outside.  Pupils who do not follow the few reasonable rules established for the lunchroom may be refused permission to eat at school.  A cafeteria offering a hot lunch program, drinks and lunch box extras is located on the lower level.  Menus and prices will be sent home as soon as they are available.

   
  The menu is based on a rotation schedule as indicated on the monthly calendar.
