McLeod Elementary is situated 42 km west of Dawson Creek and serves the farming communities of Progress, Sunset Prairie and Groundbirch. It is a K-7 school with an enrolment of 45 students. The staff consists of 1 teaching administrator, 3 full-time teachers, 1 education assistant.
The school was constructed in 1967 to replace several one-room schools, which then served each community. All students are bused to the school. The 2002/03 school year saw the completion of a Community Hall at the school which serves all three communities. The project was developed as a partnership between School District 59 and the communities involved represented by the Peace River Regional District.
McLeod has implemented a supply fee for all grades. The fee will be $40 per student for the year. These fees cover costs such as books, paper, scissors, glue, pencils, erasers and crayons, as well as project supplies throughout the year. Please pay your child’s account by October 15th.
Items you will need to supply for your child will be a backpack, lunch kit and proper running shoes.
We understand how difficult it is to buy proper running shoes for students however, it really is a safety concern in the gym when they do not have good quality shoes. Also, please do the ‘no mark’ test by having your child put the shoes on and ‘kick’ the floor to see if they leave any marks.
