Welcome to James Short Memorial School

Help Build Our Learning Commons - Indigo Adopt-A-School

James Short Memorial is again participating in the Indigo Adopt-A-School Program.


This program allows people to support our growing learning commons to get more new, high quality books for our students.


Last year we raised a lot of money for books on our own. This year, we are so priveleged to be supported by the Chapters in Chinook Centre.


Please go to the Adopt-A-School Website to learn more on how to help!


James Short School is Now Open!

Welcome, or welcome back to the families attending James Short Memorial this year.


We are very excited to start our school year with you. Our school is Kindergarten to Grade 2, as well as an EDC and we are focused on supporting our early learners in Penbrooke and Applewood.
