In grade 9 art, we made mini-videos about our favourite things, using this doc as our guide:

If you’re making a podcast, follow my quick guide:

Podcasting with WeVideo

Otherwise, the best way to learn the program is to play around with it! It’s a similar platform to iMovie and Moviemaker. Ask Ms Green for help if you get stuck!

White Pine is Back!

We are so happy to announce the the White Pine Book Club is back. This is an Ontario-wide reading program where high school students read from a selection of ten Canadian YA novels. We will meet on Fridays after school to discuss the books.

Forest of Reading website has descriptions of all the books, as does our library instagram!

Congratulations, short story writers! Now it’s the artists’ turn…


First prize: Mira Ward (above)

Second prize: Stella Robichaud 

Third prize: Sophie Kranenborg

A note from the judges: All of the submitted short stories were amazing! It was so difficult to choose a winner that we ended up choosing a top 3, deciding that all three deserved recognition. However, because all the stories were so spooky, scary, and well-written, we felt that every story deserved to be read by any MPC student who wished to read it. Thus, here is a compilation of all 17 submitted spooky short stories written by MPC students ranging from grade 9 to 12.

Spooky Stories of MPC

Now we are having a contest for the cover page for the short story collection. It should by 8.5×11, vertical, in any medium, and have the title “Spooky Stories of MPC” You can hand your submission in person at the library or by email to rebecca.green@tdsb.on.ca
