Principal's Message

Weekly Update | Sept. 17

Hello everyone,
JES | Administrative Regulations
Throughout the year as part of my role as your principal and the CBE's commitment to clearly communication I will be sharing the Administrative Regulations that will be of specific interest o you as parents.  For the month of September, I am encouraged to share the following:
AR 6005 – Student Code of Conduct AR6005-Student-Code-of-Conduct.pdf 
AR 6031 – Welcoming, Caring, Respectful and Safe Learning Environments and Work Environments AR6031-WelcomingCareingRespectfulandSafe.pdf 
JES | Student 8:50AM - Soft Entry
The school is open each morning at 8:50AM to accept students upon arrival.  Teachers are in their classrooms to welcome your children into school and we have other supervisors at each entrance as well as stationed in the staff parking lot, bus zones and roaming the south compound area.  Our “Soft Entry" approach is to ensure your children have the best start to their day, are able to physically distance as they enter the school and move through the halls to their classrooms and have an opportunity to connect with their teachers before the day starts.  It is important to note that the external doors close at 9:05AM each day and if arriving late please ensure your children are dropped off at the front entrance.  We have extra supervisors monitoring the front door so as to accept and support all those who arrive late.
JES | Student Drop Off/Pick Up  
I have received several complaints from the residents of the condos along 30 St SW.  Concerns presented are around parents who are drop or pick up their child(ren) each AM/PM are blocking some drive ways to the individual units that face 30st.  I have been asked to remind all that the specific areas of concern are clearly marked as no parking zones and the request from the residents of these units is that these zones are honored.  I recognize the challenge faced when dropping off or picking up your kids and thank you in advance for your consideration of this when bringing or collecting your Child(ren)
JES | Staffing Update
In speaking with School Council it has come to my attention that not everyone is aware of the changes in our staff.  For some the information below will act as a reminder of the June 25th Weekly Update while for any of our new families this will be an update of the staffing changes including the new hires over the summer months

JES |General Reminders
Just in case you missed it last week here is another reminder of a few things. 
Meet the Teacher
Grade teams will have connected with each f you by now. If you have not received a call or email please contact your teacher as soon as possible.  We are trying a few new ways of approaching how we manage Meet the Teacher while remaining vigilant to respect the restrictions in place due to Covid-19 safety protocols.  We are hopeful to create a new norm or standard that is both reflective of the time and busy schedules of our families and effective in meeting the individual needs of each guardian.  It is important to note that although we typically wait for Meet the Teacher events and Parent Teacher Conferences we, as a staff, are committed to involving you in the education of your child(ren).  Please do not hesitate at any time throughout the year to reach out to your classroom teacher if you have questions or concerns.  The needs and education of your child(ren) is at the center of everything we do and you as guardians are key components of this work.
Picture Retakes
Life Touch Photo Retakes: Tuesday October 26, 2021
Bike and Scooter Racks
We ask that you work with and support them in leaving their scooters at the racks instead of entering the school with them. 
Parking Lot
Please do not enter our parking lot with your vehicle to drop off or pick up your children.  This is for everyone's safety as we have many little ones making their way to their entry doors.
School Council | Apple Fund Raiser
Final call for apple orders
School council will be hosting its 2nd annual Davison Orchard Apple Fundraiser.
Order deadline will be Sept 24th and pickup will be October 5th.
For additional details you can check the Jennie Elliott Facebook page or the School Council website:
JES School Council | Volunteers Needed
Casino Volunteers are in short supply – please consider if you can support by giving some of your time.  It's fun once you get started and an interesting look at the inner workings of the casino + they feed you J
The dates for the Jennie Elliott School Casino are set for November 19th and 20th at the Elbow River Casino.
We anticipate the Casino will raise approximately $50,000 to support and enrich learning within the school.  It pays for things like: upgrading classroom technology, library and classroom resources, residency programing, new gym equipment and much more!
Approximately 40 volunteers are required to staff the shifts.  Casino Volunteer Information on positions, shifts, meals etc. please see attached document.
For all other questions please email Amy Olivier
