The staff at A.Y. Jackson would like to welcome all students and their families to the 2014-2015 school year. Our first day of class will be on Tuesday Sept. 2, 2014. Students will find their period one class posted on a list by the Pit, the library and upstairs by the Pit. Students who have a period one spare will also be listed and we ask that they meet in the library at 9:00. Students will receive their timetable, student planner etc. during their period one class. Students are asked to bring their student fees ($65 which includes a yearbook) to their period one class. Tuesday will be a regular day one with periods one and two being in the morning (75 minutes each) and periods three and four being in the afternoon.
The schedule for September 2nd is as follows:
9:00 a.m. – Grade nine orientation in the gym with J-Crew leaders (all morning)
