Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

June 27, 2019

Dear CJP Families,​
June often provides us with a chance to reflect on the year that is ending while at the same time it allows us to look forward to what is coming next. This year at CJP has been a busy one, filled with learning, growth, and building of relationships. We are so fortunate to have the families and students who enter our school every day; everything we plan, create, and dream about is for the kids. You make our work worthwhile, you give it purpose. Thank you for recognizing all that we do. 
June certainly ended our school year on a high note with the ME to WE Fair, Sports Day Magic Show, Stampede Breakfast, Patrollers Picnic, Volunteer Tea, New Student Orientation and of course countless fieldtrips. Next year will also be a busy year with Curling, Lacrosse, a fine arts residency in Felting, the Alberta Opera and many other amazing learning opportunities already scheduled.  
June also brings both farewells and welcomes to our team. 
I believe Winnie the Pooh says it best:  "How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard". Today we say goodbye to many on our team. Their hard work, dedication, caring, and passion for children and education is evident in all they do!  Mrs. Burrill, our amazing Educational Assistant is retiring. We know she will now be able to spend even more time with her amazing family and beautiful grandchildren!  Ms. Sue Elwood, one of our Lunch Room Supervisors will be moving to Brentwood school to do the same job. They are lucky to have her! Ms. Tang and Ms. Harvey have both completed their temporary contracts with us. We know they will be great additions to any school that is lucky enough to have them join their team. Ms. Humphrey has also finished her probationary contract with the CBE and will be returning to teach in the CBE, the location is yet to be determined.  Mrs. Taylor will be joining the teaching team at Piitoayis Family School.  This school has been on her bucket list of destinations to work, we are so pleased this was able to happen this year!  We wish each and everyone of our team who is leaving the very best on their journey. 
June is also a time to welcome people to our team.  We are so happy to welcome Ms. Wright to our school. She comes to us from Piitoayis Family School.  Ms. Rohrbacher and Mrs. Warkentin will remain at our school on a permanent basis. Both have accepted continuous contracts at CJP. We are fortunate to have Ms. Youngblood joining our teaching team with her first probationary contract.  Mrs. Watalla will be joining out team on a temporary contract until Mrs. O’Neill (nee Lamboo) returns in January. Ms. Stahl is joining us to fill Mrs. Breuer’s maternity position until January. We also are delighted to announce Max as a member of our teaching team.  Max is a certified medical service dog and will work alongside Mrs. Watalla.  We have been very fortunate to have service dogs in our school at a variety of times this year, we have never had the opportunity to welcome one to our staff full time. We are all very excited to welcome Max as our first ever 4-legged staff member! 
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our parents for bringing their children to school ready to learn and participate in school each day. To our staff, your dedication is so evident, thank you for always putting children first in all that you do. And to those who are always behind the scenes supporting and helping: our office staff, BSW, EAs, SAs, lunchroom supervisors, and Mr. Lam, thank you, your work does not go unnoticed. It goes without saying, School Council, your leadership, partnership, and dedication to CJP are appreciated daily. Your continued involvement and support of teaching and learning help make CJP a great place to be. Thank you. 
Thank you for a wonderful school year. We appreciate that you shared your children with us each day. Enjoy your summer together and we look forward to welcoming everyone back into the school on Tuesday, Sept 3rd. 
Please plan to check your email on Friday August 30th, when you will receive an email from your child's teacher introducing themselves and providing first day instructions. 
Our school event calendar, with any and all information that we have confirmed for next year, is on our website. Please record all the dates now for your consideration throughout out 2019-2020 school year. 
Your CJP Administrative Team Leanne Bettesworth and Helen Sharpe
