Lest We Forget
Ever-living God, we remember those whom You have gathered through the storm of war, into the peace of Your presence; may the same peace calm our fears, bring justice to all peoples and establish harmony among the nations, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
November is a busy month here at SHOJ. We would like to thank Mme Inch and Mrs. Frazer’s Grade 8 class for preparing our Remembrance Day liturgy taking place virtually this Thursday, November the 11th. As a school community we will take time to remember those individuals who have given up so much for us as they worked to bring peace to the world. Today, we are called to be peacemakers in our school, in our families and in our community.
On Thursday, November 11th we will sell poppies. If you would like one for your child, please send in a donation on this day.
We will be holding Parent-Teacher Interviews on Thursday, November 25th from 4:00 – 8:30 pm and Friday, November 26th from 9:00 am – 1:45 pm. Once again, this year, you will be able to schedule your Parent-Teacher interviews online. Families will be receiving an email on Monday, November 8th which will provide instructions and password for accessing the Parent-Teacher Interview system.

The #NoHateinHalton Campaign
The #NoHateInHalton campaing will launch on Monday, November 8th in schools across the Halton Region. This is a community campaign that was developed by our Halton Regional Police Services in collaboration with the four school districts in Halton.

We are fortunate to live in such a vibrant and diverse community and are committed to nurturing a safe, welcoming and inclusive school where all students, families and staff know they are valued, respected, accepted and safe.
