Home / School News / This Week @ Journey Sept. 25-29


Reorganization of classes – Thank you to the families of Journey as we reconfigured our school last week. Students were informed on Thursday and Friday regarding the reconfiguration of classes. There will be no more moves unless the parent and the school have been in direct contact. Thank you for your understanding a patience through this time. We have to regrettably say au revoir to Mme Dailey who will be leaving us this week for Ecole Poirier. Mr. Hart, who currently teaches with Ms. Johnston, will be moving across the hall to teach the new grade 6/7 English class.

Thank you to all the families who came out to our Meet the Teacher Evening on Thursday. It was wonderful to see so many smiling faces as parents and staff had the opportunity to meet and begin the communication that is vital in the success of our students/children.

Terry Fox Run – Thank you to all the families and students who brought in donations and ran for our hero Terry Fox. We are accepting donations until the end of Monday and will announce our grand total in next week’s blog.


Exploratory Forms – Today is the first day to bring in your exploratory forms. There will be staff members in the foyer ready to collect your forms and money (if needed). Waivers will be accepted; however, they are not due until next Monday so don’t panic.


  • Please carefully go over the choices with your child
  • Fill in the form with the top three choices
  • Fill in student’s first and last name and all other information requested
  • One parent needs to sign the form
  • Send in the first choice exploratory fee only. If your family needs financial assistance for an exploratory please email lszadkowki@sd62.b.ca
  • Each form is numbered in the order it is received
  • Some exploratories fill up faster than others
  • Only completed forms and fees (if applicable) will be accepted
