Meet the Teacher Night

​September 23, 2022

Thursday night marked the first night since 2019 that the school was open to all families. It was an evening filled with so many smiles, student excitement, and immense pride for the community of EMJ.  Over the past three years, much has changed in all of our lives. Through the pandemic schools, including our own, showed that they could maintain community with the spirit of students, parents, teachers and staff. It was great to see the energy of the EMJ community gather in the school this week to show the strong pride of community that exists here in Calgary!

Teachers experienced a fantastic evening meeting the parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles of EMJ students. Joy and pride was evident as young learners showed families their classrooms and desks, introduced them to their teachers, and toured them through the school.  The biggest excitement came when students toured families through the music room and the gymnasium.

Thank you to everyone who came and to the EMJ teachers and staff for organizing a great event for students and their families.​
