Happy reading, everyone!

Thanks to each and every one of you for supporting our students and our school in a variety of ways.

Through the giving of your time, talents, and treasures, you supported the growth and development of students--both academically and spiritually.

  • Your contributions towards our fundraising efforts supported the needs of our Bursary Program, Language Arts resources, and the recreation of our Resource Centre.
  • Because of the many generous donations we received from supporters like you, approximately 26 families will receive bursary support this coming year. iPads and classroom books were purchased; helping teachers engage students in reading, improve their reading skills, and advance to their next level.
  • Our powerful vision to recreate our Resource Centre will begin this summer, serving students beyond the classroom in areas such as: Advanced Learning, Reading Intervention, Speech, Occupational, and Education Therapy, and English as a Second Language.

Join us in giving thanks to the Lord for His goodness to us. May we glorify Him in all we do.

Keeping our JKCS family members in prayer, we wish you a safe and joy filled summer!
