Dear JA Families,


The end of the school year is right around the corner know that excitement is building! I’d like to commend all of our students who have participated in the various sports tournaments over recent weeks. We have had many impressive results and your sportsmanship has been exemplary. Thank you to all of the members of our leadership crew who organized a wonderful Rummage Sale with proceeds going to United Play.



Spring Uniform – A reminder that the warm weather uniform has now gone into effect. Navy school walking shorts and navy skorts may be worn to school.  Gym shorts may be worn for gym classes only.

Please note, the full-dress uniform is required for our graduation ceremony and awards presentation on Thursday, June 15th.



Fun Fair – June 8

This year’s Junior Academy Fun Fair will take place next Thursday, June 8th from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Thank you to the families who have already volunteered to sponsor and event or contributed to the Silent Auction.

We have one remaining opportunity for sponsorship at the Funfair:

Junior Academy Year-End Camp

It’s not too late to sign up for our Junior Academy Year-End Camp from June 19th to 28th!  A registration letter has been attached and was sent home with every student. A reminder that all registrations are due by June 1st in order to book the various venues. Please note, we will not be able to confirm activities until after the registration date.



Graduation and Awards Ceremony

On Friday, June 2nd, we will be presenting our club awards during the morning assembly.


During our graduation assembly on Thursday, June 15th, we will be presenting the sports, classroom and school leadership awards. The Graduation and Awards Ceremony will begin at 9:00 a.m. Parents of children who will be receiving an award will be contacted and we invite all interested parents to attend the ceremony.



Crazy Hat Day

On Thursday, June 8th, students may wear a hat of any type with their regular uniform.  Hats can be crazy, colourful or comfortable. Students should bring in $5.00 and they will receive lemonade and cookies as well. All proceeds will go towards the grade eight graduation gift for the school



Class Parent / Party for the Fall

At the beginning of the school year, parents from various classes have gotten together for an evening either at someone’s home or at a local restaurant for drinks, to chat and get to know each other. This year, many of these social evenings happened in the late fall.  In an effort to welcome new families and promote community within JA, it would be ideal if these events could occur closer to the beginning of the school year. If you are willing to organize or host a get together in the fall please contact Nick Johnson, njohnson@junioracademy.com .
