Dear Parents and Students,
It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to St-John Fisher Junior Elementary School for the 2019-20 school year! I look forward to getting to know all the new students and parents on our journey together.
I will be continuing to work on new initiatives and pursuing longstanding traditions that have become a part of what makes St-John- Fisher Jr. a remarkable school (caring for the environment, peaceful school initiative, Holiday concert to name a few). Through it all, it is my belief that we should be teaching and modeling the values of honesty, kindness, compassion and empathy.
I am looking forward to seeing you all when school starts on August 30th. It should be noted that our school hours have slightly changed this year in order to have a second mandatory recess in the afternoon as per the ministry stipulation. Same start time but the day ends at 2:40 p.m. and the lunch is now only 50 minutes instead of an hour (more details on our website in the parent’s handbook).
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. Together we will create a safe and caring school where mutual respect is paramount.
On behalf of the St-John Fisher Jr. team, I wish you an outstanding school year!
