Hello Parents and Guardians,

We have just finished an exciting day of professional development here at JYES on Math and Wellness.  We have been planning very intentionally to enhance student achievement in Math with a focus on a concept called "number talks" with our academic math staff.  We are also planning to have all staff concentrate on math concepts throughout the building this year.  Our French staff are working to support math instruction in their use of data management (charts and graphs) in Science, Social Studies, Arts, Health and even Core French. We have also brainstormed ways to enhance a "sense of belonging and safety" at JYES.  These areas will be a focus in our School Learning Plan this fall.  Please stay tuned as more information will be coming.

My School Council Report given on the last Wednesday of every month is a great source of information for all.  I have attached my last report for your information.

Lastly, thank you for your patience as we work with Business and Learning Technologies Staff at the OCDSB on the migration of our website platform.  The calendar of events is updated on the home page for your information and will be updated regularly to keep you in the loop!  Thank you to Sara Cinq-Mars in the office for her diligent work on this project.

I must tell you that I have thoroughly enjoyed my first month as your child's principal in my new school family.  JYES Parents support their children and their learning as great educational partners.  Your School Council does incredible work to advise administration and to fundraise.  I am truly blessed to be here at JYES.

All the best to you and your family for a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
