Dear JYES Families,

I am happy to announce the name of the new Principal for John Young Elementary School today.  Robert James is currently the Principal of Regina Street Alternative School in the Ottawa-Carleton District.  He has been appointed as Principal of JYES starting January 2019.  

I have known Rob as a colleague for many years, especially in the work that he did as a Learning Support Teacher at Bayshore Public School.  Rob, our Vice-Principal, Tosha Urbach, and I are working on a plan over the coming month to ensure a smooth transition for January.  In my opinion, Rob is an excellent choice to work as a member of the JYES Family from 2019 and beyond.  

Please see my attached Principal Report to School Council that I gave this week. I also include some great tips from CHEO regarding a topic near and dear to our hearts, Children and Technology!  It is surprising how much our lives have changed over the years due to technology.  Not all of the changes are positive especially for our children.  Please take some time to read the following article with great ideas and resources about kids and technology from one of our greatest resources in town, The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario. This is great advice from one of our awesome healthcare partners.

Hopefully I will see you at the JYES Holiday Tea on Dec. 1st starting at 10 am.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or comments.


Heather Graham, Principal
