Welcome back to a brand new school year! We hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing summer vacation. We’re looking forward to another awesome year at JMCC School! As September is always a very busy month, the information below is provided to update our families as we start the 2017/18 school year:
Parking Lot Construction
As anticipated, the parking lot remains under construction at this time, so we will continue with the Bus Loading and Unloading Schedule that was set up at the end of the 2016/17 school year.
Ministry of Education Approval – JMCCSA Website
We are extremely pleased to report that the Ministry of Education has approved our request for funds to modernize our JMCCSA website page. Our staff has begun working diligently with the website developers over the summer on this exciting venture. It is now “Under Construction”. A model will be ready very soon for feedback.
21st Century Learning
The process to provide enhanced Wi-Fi access to all JMCCSA classrooms has now commenced! This is a significant step in increasing our technological capacity, and further enhancements are planned for this year.
The gazebo, funded by the JMCCSA Parent Council, was installed over the summer. Mr. Eric Skelton has been volunteering his time to design our Healing Garden Memorial Wall. His scale model of the butterfly memorial wall will be displayed in the lobby very soon. Pictures of the model will be posted on our JMCCSA website. A memorial ceremony for families and staff is planned for this Fall.
