Mother's Day Wishes

~"Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. They are a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck." ~ Proverbs 1:8-9

As we find ourselves in our Mother's Day weekend, we wanted to wish all of our mothers in the JPI community a Happy Mother's Day. Have a beautiful day, showered with lots of love from your children!

A number of our classes have been reading and working on poetry these past couple of weeks, and we would like to share with you a Mother's Day poem from Naomi in 2C.

Help us get the word out about registration!

As we look forward to the 2022-23 school year, we are hoping that you can help us get the word out about our wonderful school. Registration is open for both programs (English and Spanish) from Kindergarten to Grade 6. You may have noticed that we have signage out again, and we'd appreciate it if you could tweet about John Paul I using @EscuelaJPIecsd, or create an Instagram and/or Facebook post, and feel free to use the picture below. Any help is appreciated to getting the word out about our great school!!!

If any families need help with the digital registration process, Ms. Amanda and Ms. Kara will gladly help out.

School Fees and Bus Pass Fess

Don't forget that school fees need to be paid as soon as possible. Bus pass fees are always due at the beginning of the month. Fees should be paid through PowerSchool, however, if you are unable to complete this, please contact Ms. Amanda in the office. She will be more than happy to walk you through the process or find an alternate form of payment.

Reading Challenges

All our JPI classes continue to take part in the reading challenge project and May kicks off another monthly reading challenge. We have a few classes that won the April Reading Challenge and we look forward to sharing that list with you next week!

Drama Club Production

Don't forget to save the date for our June 2nd production of the Wizard of Oz! We will have an opportunity to score front row seats through a raffle process. We hope that you can join us this evening. All students will have an opportunity to see the play during their dress rehearsal times.

Cobs Bread Fundraiser

If you enjoy Cobs Bread, the Harvest Pointe Location (5225 Ellerslie Rd SW) is the place to go! Anytime you make a purchase at this location and mention our school name, 5% of your order total is given back to the school. A running tally is done all year long and at the end of the school year COBS Bread will provide us with a cheque for the funds that we have raised throughout the year. A simple way to raise money for our school to help with field trips, equipment and other needs that the school has.

Spread the word to friends, family, neighbors, anyone you can think of!
