Principal's Message May 2016

After a long winter spring is finally here! It won’t be long now before we break for summer holidays.

Report cards were distributed on April 11th. If you have not received your child’s report card, please call the office at 669-0773.

Congratulations to the Sir John Drama Program for their production of Addams Family last month. You put in a lot of hard work and the reviews around town were exceptional!

We are proud of the Sir John students who competed in the Territorial Skills Competition that took place on April 19th. Many of our Falcons ranked in auto service, baking, carpentry, cooking, graphic design, hair styling, photography and TV/video.

Congratulations to our Super Soccer athletes. All of our falcons played with heart! Our Boys 15 and Under brought home a banner!

We have a lot of things going on this month. On Wednesday, May 18th at 7pm in our gym we are inviting all parents to join us to go over the high school process. This is a chance for parents to learn about Parent Assist (our online attendance & marks system), credit requirements towards graduation, course selection process, programming, career planning, etc.

There are a lot of preparations going on for the 2016 graduation ceremonies. Grad gown sizing will take place on May 9th-13th in Room 42 from 11:30-12:25 and there is a Grad Parent Meeting on Tuesday, May 24th at 7pm in the gym.

Six of our musically talented students have been nominated to attend the Alberta Provincial Music Festival in Edmonton at the end of the month and our track & field team are starting their training for the NWT Championships being held in Hay River from June 1st to 3rd. Good luck to them!

Students now have one and half months before exams begin. Regular classes end on Wednesday, June 15th. If students require additional help they are encouraged to speak to their teachers to find out when extra help is available for the course.

Mr. Dean MacInnis
