Janice TaylorMrs. McVeigh was my Grade 7 teacher at school in Lanark. She was the best, she ran a strict classroombut also ensured every student felt valued. She could motivate students to want to learn. Loved her!

Donna WhyteShe taught me also I just loved her

James PaulMarion was the best!

Anne MacWhirterMrs. Mcveigh taught a combined grade 7/8 in lanark. She was very strict, but in a kind way. Every class following lunch, she’d read aloud from some of the best authors. Dickens, for instance.She taught positive, comparative and superlative using : ILL, SICK AND DEAD. I’ll never forget that. I can see it written on the blackboard. I believe she lived to be 100 or almost.

Dianne WhiteCathy Steele Les said she retired when he went into grade 8. Did she come back and teach again at Maple Grove? His dad and Gord both had her.

Dianne WhiteKaren Hicks Les says that she must have came back because she was not their while he went to Maple Grove. He was not at Maple Grove long because he went into high school in the fall of 1970.

Cathy SteeleYes , she was principal at Maple Grove , I am wrong , she taught Dad but not me , principal, memory not like it use to be , I remember she was a wonderful person

Karen HicksCheryl Mcgonegal She was principal when we moved to Maple Grove in January of 1970. I believe Mr. McNaughton became principal in September of 1970 and Marion taught Math to the 7 & 8’s. I left for grade 9 in September of 1972 I don’t know if she continued teaching can’t remember.
