January 2022 Update

Dear CJM Families & Friends,
Let us begin by wishing you all a Happy New Year filled with many successes and continued progress. During winter break, we hope you had the chance to catch up with friends and family and enjoy some rest and relaxation. We certainly spent some time reflecting on 2021 and thinking about the work and opportunities that lie ahead in 2022.

We know you have all been monitoring and wondering about the implications of provincial decisions for in-person learning. We appreciate that there are many unknowns that are likely to be clarified as the week progresses.

At CJM School, ongoing communication with parents is essential as we work together as partners in support of each child's progress, achievement and well-being. Ongoing communication takes several forms such as phone calls, emails and learning conferences, and serves to build a shared understanding of what students know and can do in day-to-day learning experiences. The report card formally summarizes and communicates student achievement twice a year in January and June.

During the month of January, teachers will finish gathering assessment data to write report cards. Report cards will be available for you to view in myCBE/PowerSchool at the beginning of February. Please note that there will not be a printed report card sent home with your child.

Questions you can ask your child about their learning:

  • What are you looking forward to doing tomorrow at school?
  • What was your favorite part of your day?
  • Did you get frustrated with anything at school today?
  • Were you able to finish all of your work today?
  • In relation to any work they might be bringing home ask them what they are learning about.
  • What are you learning this week that really interests you?
Tell me one new thing you learned at school today and I'll tell you one thing I learned at work.

Below is the K-9 Proficiency Scale for Academic Achievement:
  • Excellent (4) – the student has demonstrated excellent achievement of grade level expectations.
  • Good (3) - the student has demonstrated good achievement of grade level expectations.
  • Basic (2) - the student has demonstrated basic achievement of grade level expectations.
  • Not Meeting (1) – the student is not meeting grade level achievement expectations.

Thank you for all of your time, effort and support each and every day. We are so lucky to be able to work and learn alongside all of our CJM families.


Ms. Bains, Principal & Ms. Harder, Assistant Principal
