​Dear CJP Families,

I’m happy to hear last night’s Family Picnic/Meet the Teacher was a huge success. I’d like to apologize once more for being unable to attend. Though we are intentional in seeking out opportunities to welcome families to share in student learning and school events that take place throughout the year, please know that the staff and administration at CJP are always willing to have a conversation with families about any concerns or questions you might have. Our door is always open so to speak, so please don’t ever hesitate to reach out.

Important Upcoming Dates

Monday, Sept. 26 – School Council Meeting 6:30 PM (see details below)

Tuesday, Sept. 27 – Terry Fox Run (please refer to your student’s Google Classroom for time)

Friday, Sept. 30 – National Day for Truth & Reconciliation (no classes)

Terry Fox Run | Tuesday, September 27th
On the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 27th CJP students will be participating in the annual Terry Fox Run. We are excited to announce that CJP students will be returning to a community run for this special event and CJP students will complete the run together in one of two groups. There will be two separate start times for the groups, the first from 9:30 – 10:00 am, and the second from 1:30 - 2:00 pm. Please refer to your student’s Google Classroom to determine when they are scheduled to run. Parents are welcome to join students here at the school during their scheduled run time. A Toonie for Terry is always encouraged if you are able.
