Principal's Message

October 2018

We have one month under our belts and considering we ventured into new territory with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing program moves, things are going well. The new boilers are working and the modified DHH classrooms have been well received. Having thirteen buses is our new reality and we are working with the CBE and the city to extend our bus zones. Plans have been drawn up and changes will hopefully happen soon. You can help us out by avoiding bus zones and dropping off and picking up students in the church parking lot. Our school patrols have been trained and are now on the job.
Presently we have 513 students including 1 TASC class and 6 DHH classes. We also added more than 20 new staff members. Our goal is to maintain an inclusive environment and strengthen relationships with our new staff and students. Recess has been moved to 1:45 p.m. to accommodate the change in school hours.
Thanks to J. Resnick for organizing the family picnic. People had a good time mingling despite the weather and many of our new families attended. Special thanks to T. Nikolaou and her team of volunteers for running picture day.
The first parent-teacher-student conference provided an opportunity for you to share information about your child and get to know your child’s teacher. A free flow of open communication coupled with positive relationships is critical for student success. The next conferences on November 22 and 23 will have a greater focus on achievement followed by a report card on January 31. Each teacher has their own communication plan to keep parents apprised of classroom life. If you have questions, complements or concerns please contact your child’s teacher.
The first school council meeting on September 17 was well attended. Thank you to co-chairs J. Chambers and R. Hauck for their leadership. A link to the J.E.S. school council webpage can be found on our school’s homepage. The next meeting is on Monday, October 15 at 7:00 p.m.
Thank you for your support of our Terry Fox run and for purchasing Admazing coupon books. Your generosity is appreciated. Thanks for being an integral part of our school’s evolution.
Chris Aylesworth, Principal
