School Memo – June 22nd, 2021

Dear Families of St. John Bosco,

It is hard to believe that we are in the last week of school! Incredible! Thanks to all of our families for you kindness, support and understanding through out this very unique school year. We truly appreciate it! You have given us your gest gifts by sending your students to school with us each day. We are lucky people!

A few reminders for this week:

1. There is no school lunch program this week. Students will need to bring in their own lunches.

2. School will dismiss at 1 pm on Thursday, June 24th. This will be a condensed day for students. We will be having an extended recess from 10:45-11:15. Students can bring in some extra snacks or a small lunch for that time. 

We wish you all a very safe and happy summer! Make lots of wonderful memories! 

Take care,

Linda and Lionel

SJB Honors the 215 Indigenous Children – June 4th

St. John Bosco recognizes the impact the Residential School system has had on Indigenous people throughout Canada. We wish to respect and honour the 215 children, families and communities that are deeply affected by this most recent tragedy in BC.   On Friday, June 4th we encourage all students, staff and our school community at SJB to wear orange as a symbol of respect and to honour the 215 Indigenous children found at the former residential school in Kamloops and all residential school survivors. 

Orange symbolizes recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and well-being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters. 

On that day, we will also have a moment of silence at 2:15 pm, to honour the 215 children and to make a commitment to further our learning about Residential Schools.

Students will also be taking part in doing a visual representation of 215 shoes in memory of these children.

Thank you.
