School Climate Survey

Between November 10 and December 12, all parents are invited to participate in the completion of the School Climate Survey.  The purpose of the School Climate Survey is to learn more about the Social-emotional outcome and Academic outcome domains.

 The Safe Schools Team and staff will use the survey results to promote an environment of academic success, respect, safety and belonging for every student.
 Parents/Guardians will be receiving a letter with their son/daughter explaining how to complete Tell Them From Me  on-line survey.

Thank you for your support.  Any questions, please call the school at 767-3052.

November's Virtue is



A Traditional Aboriginal Peace Prayer


Let us know peace.

For as long as the moon shall rise,

For as long as the rivers shall flow,

For as long as the sun will shine,

For as long as the grass shall grow,

Let us know peace.


O Great Spirit of our Ancestors,
I raise my pipe to you,
to your messengers the four winds,

and to Mother Earth who provides for your children.
Give us the wisdom to teach our children to love,

to respect, and to be kind to each other so
that they may grow with peace in mind.

Let us learn to share all the good things
that you provide for us on this Earth.

    Recycle Your Cans - Donate to the Community! 


    We have a wonderful, easy charity fundraiser that is ongoing at Bishop E.Q. Jennings!   As an EcoSchool, we are always looking for ways to help reduce our impact on the environment.  One way is to bring in your empty pop cans and place them in the RED recycling bin located beside the school in our parking lot.  ReCool will pick up the cans and pay us for the aluminum, which we then donate to local Charities.  This helps reduce Global warming and at the same time helps benefit our community. Thank-you for your anticipated support!

    Improved Parking Lot

    Parents: Please drive to the end of the school building to pick up or drop off students.  The main doors should only be used for parents or students arriving late or leaving for appointments/illness during the day.
