Principal's Message

Happy Fall James Short Memorial Community

It is hard to imagine that we have already been in school for one month. Seems like we just welcomed everyone back into the school and began our new school year. It is delightful to see all students engaging in learning, playing with each other and participating in all kinds of different activities.  
For example, last week, the school went outside and participated in the annual Terry Fox Run. We raised $123.00.  for the Terry Fox Foundation.  
Students who were in Mrs. Donamo's class last year were honored for their participation in the National Walk for Wenjack for the Downie Wenjack Foundation. This year, students will be participating in the Walk for Wenjack in October as part of Secret Path Week.  
Students have been learning about Treaty 7 with Mr. Patry during weekly story & Learning Commons time. They have learned that a Treaty is a promise, an agreement made and that how it is important to keep our promises.  
On September 30, 2021, there will be no school due to Truth and Reconciliation Day. Please see your child's Google Classroom page for ideas of how you can honour this very important day. 
In August, we welcomed Mrs. Kornelson to James Short Memorial. She has become such an integral part of our school community, it is difficult to imagine this place without her. Yet her departure is a happy one for her family. Mrs. Kornelson will be leaving JSM and in the not too distant future, will be welcoming a new family member to the Kornelson household. We wish her and her family all the best. As part of our school reshuffling, Mrs. Anderson will be leaving her Resource role and teaching in Room 17 in the am. She will be joined by Mr. Patry who will be teaching in the afternoons.  
We are looking forward to meeting all of you virtually at the next School Council Meeting – September 29, 2021 at 5:00 pm. as well as at Parent/Teacher Conferences on October 7 & 8, 2021.  
 
Sincerely, 
Cheryl Zelmer & Jon Patry​
