Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

Spring is almost here

​“Spring: A lovely reminder of how beautiful change can truly be.”
Finally, our weather is cooperating more and we are getting outside more. It is hard to believe that we are so close to our March Break!  Please remember that we have our Student Led Conferences happening during the afternoon and evening of Thursday March 21st and the morning of Friday March 22nd.  

It is so important that you try to make this a priority, as your children have worked so hard this year and this is a great time for them to share it with you. This time we also have our Book Fair – it will be DY-NO-MITE with all of the great deals that are there. Remember – all money raised will go to adding new books to our school library.   Our last day of school will be Friday March 22nd  and  We return to school on Modnay April 8th.  Parents and community members, we need your help. As you may know, we have a School Council that takes place every month. This is an important way that you can support both your child and the school community. The School Council covers topics of parent interest and ideas for making the school even better. The date for April will be announced after the break. 

We are also trying to get Friends and Family of James Short off of the ground. This Society can work to raise money for the school and to add quality to our already great program with additional money available for field trips, artists in residence and so much more. One aspect of this society is that it can put on a casino every 18 months, which brings in a huge amount of money. Currently, we are one of the only CBE schools in the city that do not have a fundraising society that can put on a casino. Please let us know how you can help by stopping at the office and signing up for our Friends and Family of James Short Society. The first meeting will take place in April. Stay Tuned.  We at James Short Memorial are developing a strong community to support our students. We need the support of our parents to make the community even stronger.

We hope that you have a relaxing and peaceful March Break and look forward to seeing all of you on Monday April 8, 2019.
