Principal's Message

Welcome back! We also extend a very special welcome to our new students, families, and staff.  I suspect that it won’t be long before you feel that you are an integral part of the ESJS community. After many first days of school, I continue to be amazed at the excitement and optimism associated with such days. I hope that we are able to build on this as the year progresses.

As with previous years, we will be soliciting your support in providing a quality education for your child. This support may come in many forms: regular communication with your child’s teacher; volunteering with our PAC; supporting your child at special events; or coaching a team to name a few. Whatever avenue you choose, please know that we value your support a great deal and we are always open to your feedback. Further, if you have any special talents that you are willing to share with our students in an extracurricular fashion, we welcome your contributions.  

Academically, we are in the second year of Yellowknife Catholic School’s Three Year Plan focusing on student-centered learning. While some initiatives from 2016 - 2017 will continue more in depth this year, please watch for some exciting new ventures.  In particular, as part of this plan, we will be working hard this year on promoting student leadership within the school - especially in the use of technology. Please watch for updates through social media or from classroom teachers. 

We hope to see you all during our Open House on Sept. 14.

 

God Bless!
