Welcome to JCS

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone to the inaugural school year of Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School.  We are all very excited to be welcoming students and finally having the hallways and classrooms filled with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to assist every student to achieve their unique potential, to feel welcome, connected and part of creating the culture at Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School. We will challenge each student to grow academically, socially and emotionally. We have a great team of teachers ready to create classroom activities that will engage students in work that is relevant to their life and their future.

I apologize for the reduced level of communication up to this point. There are a number of reasons, which are not meant as excuses, but may help explain the reality of our situation this year. We were unable to access the Student Information System since the middle of June as the CBE transitioned to Power School.  Therefore, we did not have access to any student information (time tables or email addresses) again until recently. At that time there was some caution required in advertising our first day of school as September 4th. But at this time, two weeks from welcoming students into our building, we are confident we will be ready!!

We hope that you will find our website helpful and informative. For quick updates and announcements we will use the school’s Instagram account (JCS_Ravens), Twitter account (JCS_Ravens) as well our website. Our website is updated on a regular basis and will provide more in depth details of the activities at Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School.  Please refer to these sites on a regular basis.

I am honored to serve as the principal of Joane Cardinal-Schubert. It is truly a privilege to be part of this new community. It is my hope that we can work together to build strong, positive relationships where students are cared for, pushed to excel and become contributing members of tomorrow’s society. Please feel free to contact me at any time at gctink@cbe.ab.ca 

Once again, welcome to our new school!

Sincerely,
Garry Tink

Looking Forward To Your Arrival

The 2018-2019 school year is going to be an exciting time! We look forward to opening the doors to our magnificent new school that focuses on elements of personalization, opportunities for students to achieve their highest level of understanding, tasks/assignments that are both challenging and meaningful, flexible learning structures, home/community involvement, positive relationships, and welcoming spaces.

Our wish for students who attend Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School is that they have a high school journey that is meaningful, active and inclusive. We dreamed of a high school where students are free take sensible risks with their education to evolve themselves as learners and as citizens. To help students with this journey, we have connected them to a Learning Community where they will develop authentic relationships with others to strengthen connections between subjects while developing the knowledge and skills necessary to meet their goals.

To personalize student learning, we will provide students with choice. We encourage students to be responsible self-advocates to help understand their learning preferences and participate in extracurricular pursuits that will strengthen their education. We hope students reflect on course outcomes and the skills needed to achieve them while thinking about all of the possibilities to get involved in this journey as they develop into strong leaders, learners and citizens.

The staff at JCSHS has worked diligently to create a positive opening culture and look forward to welcoming our future Ravens in bringing their unique gifts to our learning community.

Go Ravens!
