Principal's Message


Thinking Ahead


As we enter the New Year, we usually start thinking into the near future about the changes our children and families will be going through.  Kindergarten students move into a full day of school for Grade 1, Grade 6 students move into Junior High, and Grade 9 students move on to High School.   And many of the families in our community are looking at having a child enter school for the first time at the Kindergarten level.  These changes are both scary and exciting for all that are involved.

At Jan Reimer School, we work very hard to create a nurturing environment that fosters creativity, celebrates diversity and  encourages independence. Our school culture is built on the foundation of solid relationships, supporting students, and the creation of a school community that will serve all our students, their families and the community. We have established high standards for academics and citizenship for our students, and will continue to honour the commitment to service within the community demonstrated by our namesake, Jan Reimer.

Our school does have closed boundaries for all grades for the 2019 - 2020 school year.  This means we can only accept your child’s registration if you live in our designated attendance area. If you are unsure whether you are in Jan Reimer School’s attendance area, you can enter your address on the “Find a School Tool” available at www.epsb.ca.  If you have questions about registration, the office is open Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm.  You can also send any questions by email to janreimer@epsb.ca.
