1. Financial Support
Jackman ICS is committed to needs-based financial support that will both enable increased diversity and retain current Lab School families. Tuition support is available to current students entering Grades 3-6 in the 2021-2022 school year. The deadline for applications is November 10.
All applications and requests are confidential.
If you are interested in donating to the JICS Diana Rankin Muncaster Family Tuition Support Fund or the JICS Lab School Endowment Fund, please see here or speak with Richard Messina.
2. Message from JICS Parents' Association
The PA will be holding a meeting open to all JICS families on October 20th at 6pm. This is your opportunity to learn about the PA financials, this year’s PA goals, fundraising efforts, and reports from class reps.
Please register and provide any questions you may have in advance here.
PA Fees & Donations
To all families who’ve paid their PA Fees and Donations, thanks so much. So far, we are at about 80% of our goal of raising $23,250. For those who have not yet, please click through to this link to pay your PA Fees/Donations. These fees go a long way to ensure that every family is supported with access to a social worker, equipment to keep our children active, and parent education events.
Staying warm as the weather cools
As the weather starts getting chilly, we have sweatshirts and toques for you and your family to wear with JICS pride. Get your school wear at the JICS Shop online. Your purchased items will be sent home with your child within a few days of purchase (huge thank you to the JICS Staff who will help with order fulfillment while our parent volunteers are unable to enter the school).
