Transition to SJAM – Fall 2021

To help prepare our incoming Highlanders for the start of school in September, we encourage you to check out our updated transition presentation!  This features introductions to school admin and support staff, info about schedules, a virtual tour of the building and more!

With more than 400 students coming from grade 8, many returning from distance learning and more families moving into the SJAM community, we’re hoping the transition to school is as smooth as possible!  We’ll provide more updates about startup in September as they become available – please monitor our website during the coming weeks!
