Principal's Message

JSM Comunication (Twitter & Classroom Blogs)

​The work of the Calgary Board of Education is public by nature and engaging with the public is not only necessary, but is one of the pillars of our Three-Year Education Plan. We need to ensure we are serving the public well by using relevant communications channels to provide information about the operations of the CBE.
Many of our schools, service units and staff are using social media. This can be an effective means to communicate with their families and stakeholders, provided it is done in a coordinated, respectful and professional manner. It should not replace other communication channels nor should it ever be used as the sole means of connecting with your audience. When teachers and staff choose to use social media, it is vital to consider the reputation of the CBE while using social media.
James Short Memorial School will be using Twiiter to enhance communication of the learning that is happening in the classroom and around the school.  Some teachers may also be piolting Twitter in the classroom this year and access to these accounts will soon be accessed on our school website.

Classroom Blogs
Each classroom will maintain a class blog to inform families of the current learning activities in the classroom. Teachers may share other information such as: upcoming field trips, and/or special events.  
Blogs can be accessed here or on the school website under Teaching & Learning

Thank you, 

Jon Patry
Assistant Principal
