Starting mid-May, our classroom teachers, support staff, and administrators begin the process of class placements for next year. This is a very thoughtful process, and we take great care to construct each classroom so that it is balanced, based on a variety of criteria such as gender, levels, learning styles, and social/emotional needs. We also have to work within the structure of the school model (see above), recognizing that at times they are more/less grade placement options for students (e.g. we have 3 classes to place either Grade 1 Regular and French Immersion students, but only one class to place students in Grade 6 FI). Parent letters may also be taken into consideration, but it is very important to note that a letter, while considered, is not a guarantee of placement based on the parent request. If you wish to submit a placement letter for consideration, please email it to or All letters are due no later than May 5, 2017.  A placement letter can outline the type of learner your child is, friendships, and learning environments. Please do not indicate a specific teacher by name in your letter, as the letter would not be considered.   

Jackman Daycare Summer Camp

Jackman Community Daycare operates a licensed summer camp for children going into grades 1-6 in September.  The program is a mix of trips, swimming, arts & crafts, sports, organized games and other engaging activities. The groups are supervised by Registered Early Childhood Educators and experienced assistants who work in the daycare year-round.  The cost is $300/week. Camp is open from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM and there is no additional fee for these extended hours.

Registration for the community will open on April 1st and space is available on a first come, first serve basis.  To see the camp brochures and to register for camp, please check out the daycare’s website:

Elementary Summer School

Elementary summer programs are tailored to increase engagement and build self-confidence in our students. This summer, we are opening schools across the city to offer an engaging curriculum for students from Kindergarten to Grade 8. These locally driven programs support students to build literacy and numeracy skills through a creative curriculum that can include elements technology, physical fitness, art, music and drama.
