Welcome to St Andrew Junior School
CoCComm Principal's Message
We are moving into our third month of school already. Our first two months have gone by smoothly filled with lots of activity and success. Our first reporting period is coming quickly and report cards will be coming home near the end of the month. I encourage parents to review their son/daughter’s progress now by accessing the Power School parent portal located on the SRSB website. If you are unsure of how to do this, please feel free to contact the office for assistance.
Although we had a beautiful fall, as we get into November the weather becomes colder. Please make sure your son or daughter is dressed appropriately for the colder weather. Even taking warmer clothes in their school bag to put on later is fine, as we expect all students to head outside for recess.
We have had some slight staffing changes starting this month. Mrs. Marie Kennedy has moved to Guidance, and Ms. Theresa MacNeil has moved over to Dr. John H. Gillis High School in a Guidance position. Mr. Michael Turner will be our new grade 8 L.A./SST teacher and I would like to welcome him here to our SAJS school community. Lynn Casey, our CCT teacher, has taken a secondment position with the Board and Estrella Melong will be filling her position – we are happy to have her on staff. Also we would like to welcome Gordon Gallimore into the Student Success Teacher position.
I would like to thank the St. F. X. Bachelor of Education students for supporting our students in school activities. A group of X students came to our school and ran an after school homework club for the month of October and ending this week. They also provided some of our grade 7 and 8 students an opportunity to be trained as peer mentors in our school. Thanks so much to these students and to St. F.X B.Ed. community for partnering with us to widen the scope of opportunities the SAJS students receive. Our B.Ed. student will be starting their practicums with us this month. Adding the X students to our school always enhances the school community and I am sure that will be the case again this year.
Please check our website for additional information as it is updated on a regular basis. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call 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.
