A short but busy week at Janzen!

Newsletters will be emailed out to families by classroom teachers today. If you do not receive your newsletter please contact your child's homeroom teacher to inquire. 

          Construction begins this week for the replacing of the lights within the school.  They will be starting with the Home Ec and French rooms first to accommodate the vacating of classrooms for the retro fit.  The order of classrooms and scheduling still needs to be finalized and once they begin working, they will better be able to gauge the time needed and help with scheduling.   Grade 7 & 8 Classrooms will be required to take down everything from their walls (except things on bulletin boards) so the rooms can be painted following the light replacements. 

Last week we said good bye to two staff members. Sue Clement, an interpreter, has moved out of province with her family and Mrs. Janie Kerr is now enjoying retirement. We would like to welcome Ms. Karrie Ginetz as our new grade 5 teacher taking over for Mrs. Kerr.

Students in grades 4-8 will soon be participating in the province wideTell Them From Me survey. This survey is open to students between October 13th and November 19th. The data revealed from this survey helps to make important school and division based learning and environmental decisions which benefit students moving forward.

Today is the last day for magazine sales. Thank you for all your hard work in selling magazines to support our school. This year's magazine sale money will be going towards new Phys. Ed and playground equipment.

Terry Fox money will still be collected for the remainder of this week.
