Hello SJAMMERS,This week was a very busy week as our school was filled again with excited students to be back learning in school.  We started the week with a virtual assembly when all students and staff were reminded of the important Covid-19 protocols we need to follow to remain safe as a school community.  To date we have not had a positive case from any of our students which is an extraordinary feat knowing the current statistics (knock on wood :))    It has been fantastic having everyone back in the building!Next week we have a Spirit Day on Friday, January 22 where all SJAMMERS are encouraged to wear their favorite jersey or team colours. 2021 SJAM YearbooksYou can breathe a sigh of relief! We've got a set of agents who's accepted the mission to create our annual SJAM yearbook just for you. It's a job you might even consider... JAMpossible! Yearbooks are forever, but only if you purchase yours before it's too late. Go to this link on our school website​ for more info.

Have a wonderful weekend all!Darren, Andrea & Chris
