Parent-Teacher Conferences from 1 – 9 pm. On Thursday, Dec 1st, students will be dismissed early at 11:45 am.
Professional development day for the staff, no school for the students.
Grade 7’s and their parents are invited to attend this very important informational evening about transitioning to a new school after leaving grade 7. You will hear from a high school teacher and one or more former JCS students who will share their experiences with you. You will receive information about registration, IEP meetings, transition meetings at the new school, interaction with the new school, and many other details. You will find this meeting extremely helpful and it will hopefully assuage some of your concerns with the prospect of such a big change. Don’t worry – Yes, You Can!

The Beauty of Generosity
“THANK YOU” seems so inadequate to express the depth of our gratitude for the generous giving James Cameron School received on Saturday evening! Over $40,000 was raised at our first Gala. There are many who deserve our thanks, and so it is with a heart full of gratitude that I pen this expression of deep thanks to everyone who helped make our Gala the roaring success that it was.To those who contributed talent, to those who contributed donations and time or money thank you! Your generosity is truly beautiful. To everyone who attended the Gala, thank you! For those of you that could not attend I have included a link to a video of our guest speaker, Greg Epp. Greg attended JCS in the 90s and gave an inspiring speech. Warm regards, Penny Shepherd-Hill, Principal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8HMF639UiU
