June 2018 Principal's Message

The month of June is busy for Sir John. Classes are coming to an end on Friday, June 15th and exams are just around the corner.
On Friday, May 25th Sir John held its 3rd Annual Athletic Hall of Fame. This year our inductees were Jamie Koe, Andrew Matthews and Molly Milligan. Thank you to our sponsors who continue to make this event happen! The Indigenous Honour Ceremony took place on Saturday, June 9th at 1:00pm. This ceremony is very unique in recognizing our indigenous graduates in a traditional way and Sir John is very proud to be a part of it.  On Monday, June 11th we celebrated many of our student’s achievements throughout the school year at the year end Evening of Excellence. On Tuesday, June 12th at 7:00 pm the Sir John Franklin Art Department presented “A Group of Seven”.  A “Pop Up” art event. A combination of drawing, watercolor, oil pastel, and acrylic paintings will be featured from the first and second semesters Art 9/10 and Senior classes.
École Sir John Franklin’s GRAD 2018 will take place on Thursday, June 28th. Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers who work so hard to make this day a success. 
This year we say goodbye or in some cases “See you later!” to a few SJF staff members. Doreen Cleary (retired), Debbie Morrison (retired), Paul Shearme (on years leave), Tomiko Robson (deferred salary leave), Laurene Head (resigned - returning to Calgary area), Michelle Chenard (resigned - working at ECE), Danielle Couture (maternity leave), Shannon Feirreria (resigned - moving to Ontario), Sally Mbunya (resigned - returning to Calgary area). We wish them the best of luck! We’ll miss them.
Most of our Sir John events are coordinated by our dedicated staff and parents. Thank you to those who go above and beyond and put so much work in ensuring our events run smoothly all year long. Throughout the year, Sir John is very fortunate to receive guests to speak to classes and sometimes to teach a specialized and/or traditional skill. This year we saw an abundance of guests come through the school and we are very thankful to each of them. Another wonderful school year comes to an end with still so much going on.
