Principal's Message December 2018

December is a short month but we still have a lot of work to do to prepare for the upcoming Christmas break and exams happening in January 2019. To prepare for exams and for the second year in a row, we are proud to announce that a number of staff members have created a group called ‘Study Skills/Study 101’. The group will provide skills and strategies on how to study and manage stress and anxiety. Stay tuned for more details on when this group will meet.
Christmas Break runs from December 22nd to January 6th inclusive. Students will need to make sure that they are caught up in all of their classes before the break to ensure that they can properly prepare for their final exams beginning January 21st. The last day of regular classes for the first semester is scheduled for Friday, January 18th. Students are responsible to hand in all outstanding assignments and seek additional support if required.
Congratulations to Mr. Peters and the cast and crew of ‘The Little Mermaid’. They put on a wonderful show! If you didn’t get enough of Sir John’s talented performers make sure you pick up tickets for our Music Department’s Christmas concert. This concert will feature Sir John’s best singers and musicians and will take place on Thursday, December 6th at 7:00pm. Tickets are available at NACC.
We’ve had a very exciting month in our athletics department. Congratulations to our volleyball athletes who competed in Spike-It at the beginning of November. Our Falcons took home three banners! Challenge Cup took place on November 28th and we couldn’t be more proud of our hockey players. The girls kept a steady pace throughout their game and the final score was 7-3 for Irish. The boys played an exciting game making it a tie game in the last two minutes of the third period and winning in overtime bringing the cup home again this year! Our badminton players brought home both the JR and SR banner this past weekend! Good job Falcons! Basketball practices have already started in preparation for the Cager tournament at the beginning of March. We wish them luck!
The SJF staff are available to discuss concerns or answer any questions you may have. Please email the staff or call the school at 669-0773 to arrange a meeting. A grad meeting for parents was held on November 29th. If you were unable to attend and would like more information on what was discussed, please call the school. Email addresses can be found on our website (www.sjf.yk1.nt.ca). The first day of Semester 2 classes is January 31, 2019. Students will be given their timetables for Semester 2 in the morning on January 31, 2019. I hope you enjoy some time off over the holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
