One minute the grass was green and with the sun dancing on the children’s faces. Now the Autumn colours spin through the playground begging children to come and play with them. Just as the seasons have changed, many things have been changing throughout the hallways of James Short Memorial.
We have had a successful Welcome Back BBQ/ Parent-Teacher Conferences. Thank you to all who came. It was wonderful to connect with the families who were here to share in a meal and talk to the teachers. If you haven’t had a chance to connect with your teacher, please feel free to call before or after instructional hours to either set up a school/phone appointment.
Our first School Council will be on Thursday September 20, 2018 at 5:30 at G.W. Skene. Parents are welcome and encouraged to come. We will be voting in new council positions, discussing possible school wide fundraising ideas and other ways that parents can get involved with their school community.
James Short Parent Society will be starting up soon. Please contact the office if you have an interest in joining the Parent Society which will seek other fund raising opportunities to assist your child in several school endeavors – including field trips, maker space activities etc.
