Year-End Message for Families

Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

June 30, 2020

​Dear CJP Families; 
The 2019-2020 school year is finally done. It is bittersweet to end the school year this way. I can speak on behalf of all staff – we LOVED seeing all of you walk, ride, drive by in our reverse parade – it was so sweet. It was bitter not to be able to high five, hug, and connect with each and every one of you as you went past. This school year has been one for the record books. I am happy it is over, yet, I worry about what is to come in the fall. We are all remaining optimistic and hopeful, knowing, together we can manage anything that is thrown our way.  
June always brings both farewells and welcomes to our CJP team. This year, the farewells are particularly difficult.  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. Arnason, our administrative guru is retiring. Mrs. Arnason has been at CJP for 15 years, she will be missed! We know she will now be able to spend even more time relaxing on her deck, visiting with family, and enjoying the outdoors.  Mrs. Jackson a Lunch Room Supervisor, has decided to explore other opportunities outside the CBE. Mrs. Wickerson, a member of our vision team, will be moving to another school to support vision students in their community school. Mrs. Hamel, our Behaviour Support Worker, will be sharing her incredible talents with another school in the CBE, yet to be determined. Ms. Youngblood has completed her temporary contracts with us. We know she will be a great addition to any school that is lucky enough to have her join their team. Mrs. McCullough will be joining the teaching team at Buchanan School to teach Kindergarten. We wish each and every one 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. Jagger to our team. Ms. Jagger comes to us from Nose Creek Middle School. She will be a great addition to the Div. 2 team at CJP.  Mr. Wan will also be joining our Div. 2 team on a temporary contract until Mrs. Wilpert returns from her maternity leave.  
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our parents for bringing their children to school (or the kitchen table) 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. 
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 Sept 1. 
Please plan to check your email on Saturday August 29, 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 2020-2021 school year. Grades 1 – 6
