Hello John Stubbs Families!

Bus registration opened this morning, but an error was discovered in the background so it has been taken off line, hopefully it will be operational by tomorrow.

Bus registration this year can be accessed through “School Bus Transportation” link on the SD62 website.

https://www.sd62.bc.ca/our-district/transportation

You will need to enter your child’s Pupil # /Student # which is the 6 digit number.  This is different from their 9 digit Provincial Education Number (PEN).  You can find your child’s student/pupil # on their report card.  If you do not have a report card handy, you can log onto the MyED BC Family portal to find this out.  Please consult our school’s website for more details about how to do this, or the SD62 website.

PLEASE NOTE: If you successfully registered today and received a confirmation email you do not need to re-register tomorrow. Transportation will be in contact with you directly if there is information missing on your registration.

 
 

We miss all of our John Stubbs community!  We would love to see you on Thursday, May 7 between 1:30-2:30 p.m.  The John Stubbs staff will be lining Zealous Crescent in front of the school fields and we would love to see you.  Drive by, honk and wave!

For the best flow of traffic, we ask that onnce you enter Belmont Park, turn right on Egerton Avenue and then left on Zealous Crescent.  You won’t be able to miss us!  We hope to see you next Thursday.

Please keep in mind we are keeping two meters apart from each other and we kindly ask that you do the same.

LIBRARY BOOKS

There are currently about 1600 signed out library books to students of ÉJSMS.  While your librarians, Mme Cave, Mrs. Quealey and Mme Tanner, are really glad that students have them to read, re-read and enjoy, they would like parents to put them in a safe place when their children are finished with them so they know where they are when the time comes to return them.  They know this isn’t high on anyone’s priority list right now, but it would be really expensive to replace them, especially, as many are brand new books.

SEPTEMBER 2020 PLANNING

Kindergarten to Grade 7 Parents:

We are in the preliminary stages of planning for this September.  In order to clarify spaces for new families, we are asking for all families who do not plan to attend our school in September to please contact Debbie in the office at dlisrael@sd62.bc.ca

If you know of any families who will be new to École John Stubbs Elementary in September and they have not registered their child(ren), please ask them to contact the school as soon as possible.

The Yearbook team is working hard to complete the 2019-2020 Yearbook (virtually), but we need your help!  Since we are not in school and cannot take photos of April events, we’re missing some pictures from Term 3.

If you have a picture of your child showing what they are doing during these times (playing a sport/game, hiking, baking, etc…) please send it to Rynjil Harwood rh6166@sd62learns.org.  Please ensure that the photos are only of students in Grades 6-8 as the yearbook is for Middle School students only.  We will be accepting photos up until Monday April 20th.

Thank you for supporting the Yearbook Team as we work hard to capture and document the memories of the 2019/20 school year.  If you have any questions, please email Mme Gage at jgage@sd62.bc.ca

Some of our students had signed up to see Ballet Victoria’s performance of the Little Prince and Other Works on Sunday, 22 March 2020.

Unfortunately Ballet Victoria has made the decision to cancel their performances.

Mme. Kaludjer will be in contact with each of the student’s families to arrange refunds. Any questions please contact nkaludjer@sd62.bc.ca

 
 

Bonjour!

With Spring Break just around the corner, I thought I’d take a moment to touch base with you all. I have been back at work since February and my two ankles are healing well. It has been wonderful to return to school and see the students’ lovely faces again! A very big thank you goes to Mme Gibson, Mme Ryan and Mme Dorran for doing such an amazing job during my absence.

Our two spring concerts were a big success.  It was amazing to see the large number of people attending each evening and even the daytime performances were well attended. The music teachers really enjoyed spending the first months of school focussed on getting to know the children, establishing routines and teaching curriculum before beginning to prepare for the spring concerts in January.

Important Information – Attendance Line Change: We will be having a slight change in how families report student absences. After Spring break, we will no longer be using the Attendance Line. All absences will be reported using email only. We have found that the attendance line is difficult to use, as messages are very frequently garbled or difficult to hear and understand. Starting March 30th, when you know your child will be absent, please email us at:  johnstubbs@sd62.bc.ca . (Save this address on your cell phone). Please indicate the child’s first and last name, grade, teacher and date of the absence. Please also note that you can see your child’s attendance records on the parent portal. Information about this can be found at: http://districtwebsite.web.sd62.bc.ca/parents/myed-family-portal/

As always, please feel free to contact the office staff if you have any questions. We are all here to help!

Our Cell Phone Policy remains in place. All cell phones should be turned off and kept in lockers at all times from arrival to departure. We encourage parents to communicate with their child through our main office: 250-478-5571. We will be happy to help. Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Have a wonderful, rejuvenating and restful spring break. We look forward to seeing all our students on the first day back –  March 30th.

Sandra Szalipszki

Principal
