JJN Track & Field Day

Our grade 4, 5, & 6 students had a spectacular day at Fowler Track on May 22nd, for our annual J.J. Nearing Track and Field Day..  The weather was beautiful, the students were well behaved and were excellent sports cheering each other on.  Thank you to our parent volunteers for coming out to help us run this day.
The top three boys and girls for each grade for each event, will advance to the district meet on June 9th

Kindergarten registrations for 2015-2016 now available!

Our kindergarten students are so excited about our new baby chicks!
We have 10/12 chicks that have hatched so far (this might be it though, there doesn't seem to be much action from the last two eggs). The children are so excited and engaged! We have students creating videos about the chicks, some making books, others keeping track of the events in journals, some are creating and decorating a chick house out of blocks and many more creations! It's beautiful to see each child using their talents and strengths to learn about and enjoy our chicks! See the video below that was created by one of our Kindergarten students.

If your child is of kindergarten age (turning 5 by March 1, 2016) then come join our JJN family! Registration packages are available in the school office.

Like, Totally Awesome

Mr. McDougall’s class traveled back in time to the days of totally tubular leg warmers and righteous hair. The punks, jocks, mods, head bangers and valley girls had a gnarly day, and want to remind you to “don’t worry, be happy”!
