are being interrupted and activities are being delayed. PLEASE RESPECT THE MORNING BELL.
April is upon us
There are only twelve weeks left until the end of the school year!
This time of year it is important to Stick to Routines – make home life as predictable as possible by continuing
the same routines that have kept your household running through the winter months. For example… maintain
bedtimes and expect all chores will still be done. When family life stays on an even keel LEARNING can remain
the central focus!
HOME READING
So often parents ask what they can do to help their children at home. Reading with children at home and
encouraging them to read on their own each evening is HUGE in a child’s literacy development. Reading to
your child is as important as listening to your child read.
Happy Easter
Have a Happy and Safe Easter, love Jen, Shelley and Lisa.
Parent Teacher
If you missed your parent teacher appointment, please call the school to speak to your child’s teacher regarding
school progress. A reminder that parents can log into PowerSchool and check on students as well. If you do not

Message from
Elizabeth F. Paul, Director of Health Services
Millbrook Health Centre is planning Programs and Activities for the new year that starts on April 1st,
2015.
We have offered different activities over the years and are now looking for new ideas to consider.
We may not be able to implement the ideas this year but we are interested in at least hearing from the
community what kinds of activities we could try to offer to replace some of the old standbys if they fit
into our budget. For Example: During March Break there is usually a family field trip to Crystal Palace
for the students and their parents, but Crystal Palace is now closed down so we will be having different
activities during March Break. Volunteers are usually needed to assist with activities, so we will also be
requesting help from the parents, grandparents, and guardians who are available for different activities.
You can add your comments on our Facebook page or by sending an email to me at
[email protected] or dropping off a the “comment page” at the Health Centre during office
hours. Looking forward to some good ideas from the Community

If you need a letter to attach to your MEC application while you are in the process of renewing your
status card let the Band Membership clerk know this as well.
Why do I need to provide a copy of my status card with each MEC application?
For Audit purposes, acts as photo identification, DOB and band registry number.
Recent Surname change/marriage etc - Please use the name that you are registered as on the Band
Registry List on your application. To update your surname on the band registry list, contact Tricia Fultz.
Name changed on Band Membership list - should I notify Millbrook band office of this for Millbrook
Enterprise Credit/Trust funds? (examples: marriage/divorce, adoption)
Yes so we can keep our files up-to-date, and if for a minor – to ensure funds are still in correct trust
fund.
Why do I have to provide banking information each time with my MEC application?
For Audit purposes and to ensure that we have correct banking information for direct deposit. Tip Keep a copy of your status card & voided cheque on file (in a secure place).
I give permission to have someone pick my MEC cheque up for me can I just call?
No, please send permission in writing and attach to your MEC application (preferred method).
Can I fax or email my application?
No. Original copies of applications are required.
Moved or change of mailing and did not get MEC application?
MEC Applications are available in the community newsletters, on the website. If you would like to
have an application mailed to your new mailing address or emailed to you contact the Band Office.
My (Mother, Father, Son, Daugther) passed away, can a cheque still be processed toward his/her estate?
If a band member has completed an application prior to his/her passing, we will issue the credit to his/
her estate. If an application is not completed prior to the passing we do not process the credit and legal
executor cannot apply on behalf of the deceased.
What about Trust fund in this matter?
The executor can apply on behalf of the deceased.
