Welcome to St Andrew Junior School
Principal's Message - April
Spring has arrived….well sort of! It has been a long winter but it feels like we have turned the corner and are now in the homestretch.
This year the focus has been integrating technology into the classrooms. We have worked hard and made great gains in this area. We are now seeing the benefits as teachers are reporting an increase in student engagement, collaboration and creativity. As well, individual students are overcoming what used to be learning hurdles and are having tremendous success and are becoming more confident, independent learners.
Some teachers are now using student devices such as smart phones and iPads for educational purposes. We support and encourage this and are asking parents to support this initiative. You may do so by talking with your son or daughter about appropriate use of their device while in school. These are great opportunities which allow us to explore beyond the boundaries of the classroom walls. We would like to continue down this path. You may find our cell phone policy on our website under Students, School Rules, Regulations & Policies on Page 5.
Volunteer week is April 6th to 12th. Therefore, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the many volunteers who help support our students. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the office at 863-3046.
Kirk Johnstone, Principal On May 4 Ford (Keltic Ford Dealership) has picked our school to benefit from a community fund-raiser. We can potentially receive up to $6000, this money will go towards our school. We are asked to run the registration table for the day and the BBQ from 11am-2pm. I have a sign up sheet (see attached), for people to sign up for either (or both) places. The more people who come and go for a test drive the better. We receive $20/test drive. Individuals come in and sign-up and it costs them nothing. Tell your family and friends to come down on May 4th.
