Edsby for Parents & Guardians

We are inviting you to a new communications platform - Edsby.  Edsby pulls together up-to-the-minute information about your children and presents it in a clear, easy to understand and comprehensive format.  You can see their attendance and if posted, their assigned homework and the specifics of what they are being taught in each class each day.  You can also see school news from Edsby as well.  Edsby keeps everything safe and secure within the confines of our school meaning there is no opportunity for anyone from the outside world “allowed in”. We invite you to get involved!  The teachers and students are just starting to use this communication tool within the classroom and depending on the class, parents will see a variance in use.  The next step will involve inviting you into the classroom.  Because your username will be your email address, only those who have provided their email address to the school office will be invited to Edsby at this time.  Edsby provides each parent/guardian with their own account so we encourage you to ensure we have all email addresses.  If you would like to start learning more about Edsby, visit www.edsby.com/help/parents.  They have a page specifically dedicated for parents including an introductory video you can watch.   Edsby also has a free app for all iOS and Android smart phones and tablets. If you’re using a Blackberry, Edsby works great within your browser.  The power of Edsby while using your smart device means you’ll have up-to-the minute access regarding school information anywhere, anytime.

We would like to gratefully acknowledge all of our parent volunteers! If you've ever chaperoned a field trip, helped out at an event, donated prizes, or given of your time to make your child's school community better we sincerely thank you! We are always looking for parent involvement here at JAM, if you'd like to be here we'd love to have you. Please feel free to contact the school to find out more. One great way to start is by attending School Advisory Council​ meetings. SAC meets the first Monday of every month at 6:00pm in the school library. Free babysitting is provided!

Every Child's Safety Is Our #1 Priority!
 
Please obey the no-parking signs and painted pavement. We
have the Kiss and Ride zone for quick drop-off, and our bus zones
must be clear of idling or parked cars. We also need
to keep the primary walkway (by the recycling bin enclosure) clear. This area is not a parking zone, even just for ‘a second’.
 
Parents should not be parking their cars or sitting in cars blocking the bus zone.
 
Please avoid using the staff parking lot in front of the school. There is no supervision and spaces are limited for staff and GECDSB personnel. Please do not use the handicapped spot when dropping off or picking up your child. Thank-you for your co-operation.

CAN YOU HELP?
 
Instrument Donations
If you have an instrument at home that you are willing to donate to the school (even if it needs minor repairs), it would be gratefully received. Your donation will be recognized in our monthly newsletter and with a plate on the instrument case naming the donor.
Waste Free Lunches
The Enviro Club has been working hard to raise awareness in our school. Please remind your child to recycle and please pack lunch items in containers that can be reused. Compost containers have been placed in classrooms. We have a dedicated team of students who are overseeing this entire operation!
We are working hard to reduce the garbage in our school.
