Topics covered in this post:
1. Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas to the Orthodox Christians in our community. Wishing you joy within your home, love within your hearts, happiness now and always!
2. Welcome back!
It was wonderful to see the children yesterday and today online and the Nursery children in person. They appeared excited, happy, and eager to reconnect with friends and teachers, filled with stories to share.
3. Re-enrolment for 2022-2023
Re-enrolment information and forms were emailed on December 9 for the 2022-2023 school year. The form and the non-refundable $5000 deposit are due in the office by Wednesday, January 19, 2022. Parents can deliver them in person. The school office will be open each day from 9:00am - 3:00pm. Please enter the building from 45 Walmer Road (where you will complete a COVID self-screening) with PPE and maintain physical distance while in the building. Please take the time to review the JICS values, philosophy, and mission before making your decision to re-enrol.
4. JICS Fall Edition Newsletter
At JICS, we believe that when it comes to our partnership with parents, the more information, the better! Hence, we provide weekly or biweekly teacher class-specific summary emails, Thursday’s Parent Information Posts, the individual report cards, parent-teacher interviews/meetings, etc. The JICS Newsletter is an opportunity to “peak into” the rest of the school and learn about experiences that you may not know about. Many thanks to Krista for her work in publishing it! We design it to be shared between parents and children. If you did not have the chance to go through the stunning JICS Newsletter with your child during the holidays, we strongly encourage that take the time soon to do so now. Use the password provided in the Weekly Info email (December 9) to access the Fall Newsletter.
