Principal's Message

Thank you & Volunteers

​Dear JSM Families, 
Thank you so much to all of you who were able to connect in conferences last Thursday and Friday. The teachers and the school work really hard to maintain communication with parents throughout the year, to celebrate successes and to determine next steps and/or areas of focus. Conferences are a wonderful time to focus on each one of our students.
If you were unable to attend conferences, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher if you would like to find time to meet over the next little while.
As Covid restrictions relax, we anticipate that there will be significantly more opportunities to volunteer in classrooms, on field trips, and at School Council events than there has been over the last couple of years. Just a reminder that in order to volunteer in the school and/or with students, you need to have a Police Information Check that has been completed for the CBE in the last five years.
If you have not had a police check done for the CBE, or your previous check has expired, now is a great time to do one! You need to come into the school office in person, with two pieces of identification​ (one needs to be picture ID, the other proof of address), and we use that to give you a letter with a unique code that you use to apply with the Calgary Police Service.
​This is also a reminder that students will be off school for Spring Break from March 21 - April 1.  School resumes on April 4th.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the school.
Thank you, 
Cheryl Zelmer & Jon Patry
