Principal's Message

Year End Principal Message

Good afternoon families,

On behalf of all of us at James Short Memorial, we wanted to wish you a safe, healthy  and peaceful summer break.  Our office will be closed now until Thursday August 27th, 2020. We will not be checking emails or voicemails until that time.

Before we go, we do have words of thanks. Thank you to our Parent Council for all their work at fund raising, getting a Parent Association initiated and always being so supportive of the students at James Short Memorial.

Thank you to all staff, students and parents for working together to help children continue on their learning journey. We all struggled through it and we thank you all. 

Secondly, we have some updates to our teacher staffing for the fall. Sadly we are saying farewell to Mrs. Tracey Burch. She is moving from the EDC program to McKenzie Towne School.  Rachel Gibson will continue to work with the EDC program either continuing at James Short Memorial or at Guy Weadick School. 
We hope that you have many opportunities rejuvenate and we all look forward to connecting with everyone in the fall. Have a wonderful summer and we will see you all in the fall.

Cheryl Zelmer and Jon Patry
