Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

Apr 9

Hope you all had a wonderful spring break and spent some quality time outside with your friends and family.  Thanks to Ryan MacLeod, our Learning Leader and Math Coach who stepped into the office this past week to support students and staff as we had a week between one of our assistant principals saying goodbye and another saying hello.  We welcome Cat Gammell as she begins her SJAM journey on Monday, April 12. Please see the attached letter​ for Ms. Gammell’s letter of introduction.Students will be working through some reflective questions using their Spark reports with their humanities teachers in the upcoming weeks.  This will be followed up through classroom discussions with all their teachers.  We look forward to our students recognizing how they can use their strengths in their learning along with focusing on an area to develop to be the best student they can be.All parents and guardians are reminded that the date to transfer to CBe-learn (on-line classes) for next year is Friday, April 23.  A message went out today to all of our families with specifics on how to do this.  Alberta Education SurveyParents/guardians of Grade 7 students are reminded that the survey deadline is Friday, April 23, 2021.  We are asking as many of our parents as possible to take the time to answer this survey.  Please remember that if you choose the answer “I don't know” it counts as a negative.  If you really “do not know” please leave it blank as a blank will not skew the results.Yearbook Purchase Update We've got some great news. Our yearbook publisher has offered to provide us extra copies of the yearbook, beyond the number we committed to at the deadline in February. This means that you still have the opportunity to purchase your own copy of the 2021 SJAM Yearbook, if you were not able to already do so. Keep in mind that there are still limited copies and when we run out, that will be it, so take advantage of this opportunity before it's too late. In order to purchase your guaranteed copy, you will need to pay with cheque or cash, in person, at the office. The cost is $35. First come, first serve.Flourishing Life Spark terminologyWell-Being - A positive state of feeling content, healthy, empowered and prosperous. Mindset - An individual’s disposition, belief system, attitude and energy - their perspective of themselves and how they interpret the world around them.Diversity at SJAMWe hope all of our families that celebrated Easter on spring break had a joyous celebration with their loved ones and friends.  We also want SJAMMERS to know that Ramadan begins April 13 and will last for a month.  We will be accommodating for their afternoon prayer in our Learning Commons so please contact the school if you have any questions or would like to participate.  Please also be on the lookout for the CBE Indigenous newsletter that Ms. Hackman will be sending out later this evening. Have a great weekend!Darren & Andrea​
