Welcome to Ms. McPherson’s Room, and to Grade 8!!

Please consider signing up for Remind.com.  Both students and parents/guardians are encouraged to join this valuable site.  It is very handy for teachers to… well… provide reminders for important events and information.

To sign up for Remind, go to their site or app (Remind.com) and join my homeroom class by using the code:


ABSENCE FROM SCHOOL: If your child is going to be absent from school for any reason, please send a note or email myself or the school office.  You can also phone Virden Junior High in the morning (204-748-1932).  We are not able to record a student as absent based on students’ reporting of absences.

And the most important thing of all…. 

“Be not afraid of moving slowly.  Be afraid of standing still.”

People learn in different ways and at different paces.  The important thing is that my students are continuously learning.  Here’s to a great year!!
