Daily Message from Principal

Dear Parents,

I hope that you all had an enjoyable summer filled with laughter, family and friends.   Although you and your children may be fighting the reality, it is now time to look ahead to the upcoming school year.  SJB is an amazing school with so much to offer, that I am humbled and excited to be the new principal here and am looking forward to getting to know you better.   We have been very busy over the summer sprucing up the school and we should be ready to go for the first day of school.

The school day has been increased by 5 minutes.  School will now begin at 8:25am.

Grade 8 students start school on Tuesday, September 5 at 8:25am.  Students will be picked up at their bus stop at the regular time.  First Student Canada Bus Company should be making contact with all families this week.  Should you not receive a phone call, please contact the school office.

On Tuesday, Grade 8 students will:

  • Meet in the gym for assembly.
  • Receive their schedule, locker, lock and agenda.
  • Rotate through a shortened schedule of their classes.
  • Finish at approximately 12:00pm.

The buses will depart and drop off the students at their regular bus stop.

Students in grades 9 – 12 will start school on Wednesday, September 6 at 8:25am in the gym.  This will be a full school day. All students are expected to be in uniform both Tuesday and Wednesday.

Students in Grade 8 – 9 who have course changes should contact Mr. De Julius, while students in grades 10-12 need to contact Mr. Fraser.

My door is always open.  Please do not hesitate to call, email or talk to me in person if you have any questions, suggestions or concerned.

Looking forward to a great year together,

Mr. Gianni Bittante
