Principal's Message

Oct. 3

Good afternoon SJAMmers,
September has been a great month that brought many transitions for our students.  We are pleased with how our students have settled in, and have a month of learning under their belt.  With the start of the school year classroom expectations have been explored, and staff have gone over the Student Code of Conduct with students. We encourage our parents / guardians to go over these with your child for an opportunity to further understand the School Code of Conduct. The link can be found here​.
