Screenagers Documentary

Screenagers

SAS-Jackson will be showing the documentary “Screenagers” to Learning Centre students and staff in the gymnasium throughout the day this Wednesday, May 8 (Seminar Day #14).

As you may recall, our school district’s DPAC showed this documentary last year.  With themes such as cell phone use, social media, gaming and digital citizenship, the feedback from those who say the film was consistent:  relevant, important, eye-opening, thought-provoking.

Welcome to Jackson – Gr. 8 Parent & Student Info Night + Electives Tour!

SAS-Jackson would like to welcome all grade 8 parents, guardians and students to our school tonight (Wednesday, April 24) to learn all about our school – and your child’s school this upcoming fall!!

The evening will begin with an information presentation in the gym at 6:30pm, hosted by our administration and counselling team.

Immediately after the presentation, guests will have the opportunity to tour our school.  Our elective teachers will be on hand to show you their facilities, and to provide you with information about their elective subject.

We believe the information gained by meeting the elective teachers, and seeing the learning spaces will assist with student course selections.

We hope to see you all there!
