Keeping SJ/AJA Community Informed

Aquavan from Canada 150 spent Tuesday September 19 with all of our students to support their learning in science.  Students were incredibly engaged in conversations and generated great questions    to deepen their understanding.

 

Parent council is adding more mulch to our school gardens.  Come and join us tomorrow morning September 23  at 10:30.

 

Demographic sheets will be sent home Monday September 25, please update your information and return to the school as soon as possible. 
Our annual Terry Fox Run is coming up Tuesday September 26, 2017. The character assembly about belonging will begin at 8:20 with the run to follow.  Our students do a fundraiser during this time to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society, feel free to donate if you can. Parents are welcome to join us.

 

Friday September 29th is Orange Shirt day; this is in support of truth and reconciliation for our indigenous people.   

 

All of our fees and fieldtrips have received ministerial approval.  Fee sheets will come out next week; teachers will inform parents of upcoming fieldtrips as they arise throughout the year.  Thank you for your patience with this new process.

 

I had a conversation with the new president of the Middle/Junior High Athletic Association to try once again to have our grade 6 Stanley Jones students participate in individual sporting events such as cross-country running, wrestling, badminton, and track and field.  This has been a goal of mine for the last five years and my persistence has paid off, we are now able to do this.
