We are looking forward to welcoming all Journey Middle School students. Students are expected to arrive at school before the welcoming bell at 8:40 am on Tuesday, September 6th. Names of students and their teachers will be posted hers will be posted on the windows on each side of the front door of the school. All students will be dismissed at 11:58 am on Tuesday, September 6th. Buses will run on these alternate hours.

All grade 6 students will be meeting in the gym. They will be asked to find the name of their Advisory Teacher posted on the gym wall, and will be directed to sit under their Advisory Teacher’s name posted on the gym wall. The teachers will introduce themselves to their students and our vice-principal Mr. Bedard and I will welcome them as well. Teachers will then walk to their classrooms with their students and spend the rest of the morning providing all the details and information needed to begin a successful year at Journey.

Students new to Journey this year will find their name will be on a list on the windows as well. Please come to the office and our counsellor, Ms. Ellis,  will help you find your neighbourhood and classroom.

All Grade 7 and 8 students should find their name under their Advisory Teacher’s name which will be posted hers will be posted on the windows beside the front door of the school. Students should make their way to their new classrooms when the bell rings.

School Supplies

School supply lists are posted on our website under the Tab About à Forms. These list are for English and French. Students should not bring their school supplies on the first day, but something to write with would be recommended. Your teacher will let you know when to bring your supplies. All students will be issued a locker for this school year hopefully by Friday, September 9.

Transportation

All bus information can be found on our School District 62 Website including scheduled times and pick up and drop off locations.

Student fees

On the first day of school, we will be sending home a Student Fees Envelope with all students. Students will be asked to return this sealed envelope to their Advisory Teachers. Please make all cheques payable to “SCHOOL DISTRICT 62”.   We are hopeful there will be an online option as well to make payments.

Class lists

Our class lists for the school year were finalized in August, so it is very important for all students and parents to note that class lists are complete and changes are very difficult to do at this time. Our staff has worked very hard to balance classes and ensure start-up runs as smoothly as possible for all students.

Journey Website

We update our website at least once per week. Please become familiar with our website and visit it regularly throughout the school year. Communication is very important and several teacher also have class websites/wikis as well. If you need further information, have questions, concerns or ideas, please call the school or drop by the office. Our front office staff will be happy to assist you. The office is open 8:00 am – 3:30 Monday to Friday. You can reach us at 250-642-5881.

Enjoy the rest of the summer and we look forward to seeing your child in September.

Wednesday, June 29 is students/parents can pick up report cards from your classroom teacher any time between 9 a.m.-4 p.m.  All report cards not picked up will be in the office for pick up Thursday, June 30 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and the first week of July.  They will be available again the last week of August.

Our staff wishes everyone a wonderful summer and thank you for sharing your children with us over the last ten months.  Good luck to our students heading off to EMCS and/or other high schools, and those moving to other parts of the country.  It has been a pleasure to teach you.  Always stay in touch!

 

 
 

Our final full week at Journey is here! There is still work to hand in and activities planned over the next seven school days. Activities and field trips are as important as sitting at a desk writing so students are expected to be at school. In fact, some activities aimed at the social and emotional needs of students are often some of the most important for students to feel successful. You can better support your child if they are asking to stay home, or for a note to get out of school early, by encouraging them to stay in class. Our school counsellor is on hand to assist any students/parents who are feeling overwhelmed at this transitional time.

Congratulations to our Rock ‘n’ Roll students who performed on Friday for the whole school. That takes and talent and determination! Wow, we’ve got talent! Thanks to all the students who performed, parents who attended and Mr. Hopkins and Mr. Hopkins for making this all happen for us!

Thanks to our PAC! The last meeting of the year was filled with congratulations, delicious food and beverages. Our PAC was responsible for funding many programs, $200 toward each classroom for field trips, Year-end BBQ and moral support! The first PAC Meeting of the new school year is September 13th at 7 pm in the Journey Library.  

Staffing/Class Configuration – every year we have to say goodbye to some staff and also welcome new staff to Journey for the new school year. We wish all of our staff well at their new schools. Students have been placed in classes for next year. This of course can change right up until the first week of school.

What a week at Journey! Our Musical Theatre students brought back the ‘80s in their song and dance extravaganza all week. It brought back some memories with the neon colours, big hair and music! Thank you to parent volunteers and Mrs. Fader for making this happen. It was also an experience to work with talented EMCS students and perform in the Theatre. Thanks again to PAC for funding the buses.

Thanks to Mr. Dunbar’s organizing, hard work and energy that provided two days of friendly Jouro completion on our field. Students were out in all their team colours and our cheerleaders keep everyone’s spirits up. It came down to a shootout between Mr. Hopkins/Quint’s grade 6/7 class and Ms. Wien’s grade 8 class. It took several shots and in the end the Grade 8s pulled off the victory!

Can it really be half way through June already? With only twelve days of school remaining there are many field trips planned and work left to complete. Teachers are beginning to gather student work and look over the term for report cards. Please help your child stay focused during these last exciting and stressful days by asking about what’s due, signing permission forms, and asking them to bring home all those clothes they have stuffed in their lockers!

Congratulations Students and thank you Mr. Bryan for organizing!-The Journey Floor Hockey Championship Cup Final was played this last Wednesday at lunch in the gym. The Destroyers (student team) squared off against the Dream Catchers (staff team). The Dream Catchers started off strongly scoring the first goal and seemed to be on a roll, however, the young spirit of The Destroyers proved to be too much for the staff team and the students rattled off four straight goals as the staff faded over three periods of fun, playful, and full of shenanigans hockey. The end result was The Destroyers 4 … Dream Catchers 2. All in all a great tournament and with true Dragon Spirit in play throughout.

Congratulations – We can be very proud of our students, staff and community.  Approximately 100 travelled to Port Alberni – Grades 6-12 and community members.  5 groups performed;

  1.  Junior Band–received Excellent +
  2.  Intermediate Community Band (JMS. EMCS and community members) received Superior
  3.  Senior Community Band (JMS, EMCS, and community members) received Superior
  4.  Community Orchestra Course (JMS, EMCS and students and adults in the Sooke District) received Superior
  5.  Community Chamber Ensemble (JMS, EMCS and students and adults in the Sooke District) received Superior.

Superior is the highest rating.  This means that all 5 groups are invited to play at the nationals for Musicfest Canada which is being held in Niagara Falls in May 2017.  Out of 450,000 students across Canada who play in the regionals, only 8000 make it to the Nationals, so we have done well.   The adjudicators were impressed with our musical community and wanted to come and check it out for themselves.
