October Newsletter

Please find this month's newsletter HERE

October is the month of Respect at McDermid.

“I Respect” is one of the shared values of Regina Public Schools. Respect is also one of the 7 Grandfather Teachings, represented by the Buffalo. Respect means thinking highly of someone else. The buffalo so valued the First Nations people that it gave every piece of itself to provide for their needs.

To learn more about Respect, we recommend watching the teaching from Elder Hazel Dixon at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, found HERE.
