Indigenous Land Acknowledgement

Muskoka Beechgrove Public School acknowledges that this land is the traditional homeland of the Ojibway Nation and the Huron/Wendat Nation, and now includes communities from the Mohawk Nation, the Pottawatomi Nation and the Metis Nation of Ontario.

Why do we say a land acknowledgement? Honouring the land is a tradition that dates back thousands of years for Indigenous Peoples.

Regardless of your personal ancestry and heritage, as people living on traditional Indigenous lands WE are ALL TREATY PEOPLE!

land we stand on?”…/territorial-acknowledgements-indigenous…

MBPS – School Cash Online

Muskoka Beechgrove Public School is excited to announce the implementation of School Cash Online. This will allow parents to pay for class trips and other items online rather than having to send in cash or cheques.  We will be sending home information about this with students by the end of the week.  Please look for the School Cash Online postcard in their backpacks. We will be starting this program off with the option to purchase the 2017-2018 Yearbook. Note: Please don’t confuse this with the Lifetouch ybpay option on the yearbook flyer.

School Cash Online is a secure, convenient way to pay for your child's school expenses. To set it up all you need to do is go to to activate accounts for your children.  Moving forward, online payments will be our school's preferred method of payment, which will limit the needs for students to transport money and order forms to and from the school.  As the year continues on, we will be utilizing this payment option for school trips, spirit wear, lunch orders etc.... As new online payment options become available, you will see the option to purchase in your online account.  Happy Shopping!!
