Principal's Message January 2021
Mr. Dean MacInnis

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Christmas break. Students should be finishing up any class assignments and preparing for exams. To help students prepare for exams, two Study Skills sessions were held on Jan. 6th showing students how to manage their time while studying. Thank you to staff members for organizing this. See this month's newsletter for more study tips and for the exam schedule.
 

Our Northern Studies classes recently took part in the blanket exercise. The blanket exercise is an interactive education program that teaches the history of Indigenous peoples in Canada.


Over the last few months, the Senior Drama class has been working on a one act play called “Tracks”. Although they are unable to perform in front of a large audience, they will perform the play in front of a few lucky classes.

 

To celebrate the last day of Semester 1, we encourage students (and staff) to wear falcon swag on January 15th! Send a selfie wearing falcon swag to sjf@yk1.nt.ca or post on Instagram. Make sure to include #falconswagjan15 to enter your name for a chance to win a prize from the Falcon’s Nest. 
 

Badminton practices have wrapped up for this school year. An in-school tournament was held and the results can be found in this month's newsletter. Thank you to staff members who continue to volunteer their time. Students can look forward to basketball starting sometime in February.
 

Remember to take a look inside for exam schedule and study tips. And remember that teachers are here to help you if you need additional help. The first day of Semester 2 is January 28th and report cards will be handed out on February 1st.
