Principal's Message

Season Greetings & Happy New Year

As 2019 comes to a close and we enter a new decade, we are truly grateful for so many things this year. The amazing students at James Short Memorial who eagerly share their stories, discoveries and wonders. We truly appreciate the professionalism and ethic of care that continues to be shown by our teachers and support staff over the last couple months. Our greatest strength is our people. This is evident in the way that staff support each other and the learners every day, and continue to bring high quality learning experiences to all students.
