Principal's Message

Season Greetings & Happy New Year

Dear JSM family and friends,
​It's hard to believe we are nearing the end of this year and everyone is ready for a well-deserved break. We wish to thank all of you in the JSM community for your support, patience, and flexibility as we have learned to navigate and continue to figure out how to be 'normal' when nothing is normal. 
The students at James Short Memorial continue to thrive and eagerly share their stories and discoveries from virtual and safe distances! We truly appreciate the professionalism and ethic of care that continues to be shown by our teachers and support staff since the world was turned upside down. Our greatest strength is our people. This is evident in the way that staff support each other and the learners every day, and continue to bring high quality learning experiences to all students. 
We are looking forward to seeing all of the students back at James Short Memorial.  Students will return to the online Google Classroom on Monday January 4-8th, 2021. With a return ​in-classroom on January 11th, 2021.
This is a reminder that there is no school for students Friday December 18th, 2020.
Have a safe, healthy and happy holiday!
Cheryl and Jon​
