Invitations and Upcoming Dates


Good afternoon to our Jack James community,
As we head into the weekend I wanted to share some upcoming important dates and invitations with you.
On Thursday, September 23 we have our High School Orientation evening. This will be held virtually with myself, Jennifer Gorkoff – JJHS Principal, our Assistant Principals Ms. Farrell and Mr. Ferguson, and our Guidance Counsellors Ms. Davis-Walker and Ms. Hood. We will give an overview of our school and programming, share our plans for the school year and answer questions from parents and guardians. Our courses and teachers will have video links posted on our website to share overviews of their programs, what students will be learning, and the high school experience in each program. These videos will be posted on September 23 for parents & guardians to access as part of our orientation evening.
Please join us on September 23 at 6:00pm -  JJHS Orientation Evening Link
