Jack Stuart School - March 2023
In Our House
JSS School Administration Message by
Mr. Todd Sieben, Principal
Ms. Erica Easton, Assistant Principal
Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten registration for the 2023/24 school year opened at the start of last month. Here is the new link: https://www.brsd.ab.ca/families/registration
Just a quick reminder that student attendance has the greatest impact on student learning and success. Please help us out and ensure your child(ren) are regularly attending school. Certainly, if they are ill or have an appointment, they will be marked excusably absent.
We look forward to the warm weather and puddles in March. Please remember to send with your child their splash pants and rubber boots on warm days and snow pants and winter boots on cooler days. We want our students to enjoy their time outside during recess. Thank you to our JSS parents/guardians and staff who have gone above and beyond each day to ensure students are safe, cared for and have an optimal learning environment for all students.
As we continue to recognize students who say and do the right things, especially when no one is looking, we randomly pick two student Jaguar Cards (submitted into the “Caught in the Matrix” Jaguar Card Bin in the school office) each week to enjoy a free lunch (made possible by our local eatery/restaurant supporters). Those students have their picture taken and uploaded to the electronic bulletin board in our north entrance lobby. Each Jaguar Card remains in the bin for the entire month, then we start over with an empty bin the next month. 198 JSS students received Jaguar Cards in September, 262 in October, another 102 in November, 96 students in December, 204 more in January, and 68 in February…for a total of 930 Jaguar Cards this school year. We are very proud of all our students living the school pledge each day. Stay tuned for our March totals and beyond.
Thank you to …
Ms. Erica Easton for coaching our Grade 4 Basketball team this year.
Mr. Brett McCarroll for coaching our Grade 5 Basketball team this year.
