Education Week 2015: Schools as Communities: Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors
On Wednesday, April 22nd, Saint Andrew Junior School will be hosting an Open House from 1:00 pm to 2:15. This is open to parents and community members who would like to visit our school and experience what is going on in our classrooms. Agencies such as RCMP, Addiction Services, Public Health and Regional Student Services will also be on hand to speak with parents and explain their role in the school.
We hope that our community will visit our school and see all the wonderful things going on at SAJS!
IMPORTANT NOTICE: April 15th/15
For your information, the Regional In-Service Day scheduled for Friday, April 24, 2015, has been deferred to Wednesday, September 2, 2015. As a result, there will be regular classes for students on Friday, April 24, 2015. Please note it will be Day F of our schedule, with Monday also being Day F.
This change to our calendar supports the recent measures taken to protect and maximize our use of instructional time and reduce further loss of class time for the remainder of this school year. This decision was made following consultation with all Principals, as well as the local leadership of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union and the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local #955. This decision continues to build upon earlier measures taken at both the Strait Regional School Board and school level that have resulted in delaying and/or rescheduling professional development activities.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school. Thank you very much for your continued support.
