Williams' Wall

Hi TJL Families!

 Thank you for visiting our TJL Webpage!

 The past few weeks have been so exciting at TJL!  Our students and staff came together and wore pink in honor of breast cancer awareness month, we had a fantastic Halloween (Thank you again to our awesome PTA for our Spooky Courtyard!) and we paid tribute to our Veterans, as students made cards and wrote messages of "thanks" to our local heroes.

 Our morning clubs, academic programs and musical performance groups are off to a great start and we held our first No Place for Hate Meeting with our student representatives.  Our Grade 5 students participated in the Beautiful Me and Inner Strengths programs and we had a successful virtual parent workshop, Raising a Beautiful Child, as well.

 We’re excited to share that we are planning to hold in person concerts this year!  Our students have been practicing and working so hard on their concert pieces.  We can’t wait to see them on stage and celebrate their success!  Our first concert is the Grade 5 Winter Concert on December 6th!  (Details regarding this event will be sent home with students shortly.)

 Please continue to check out our page on Twitter to see some recent "snapshots" of lessons and activities that our students have been doing.  We’re so proud of them!  Our handle is @TJL_Elementary.

 Also, please make sure to check out the list of ‘Upcoming Events and Activities’ listed below and don’t forget to check the ‘TJL Virtual Backpack’ for digital copies of letters and flyers that are backpacked home.

 Student report cards will soon be posted to the Parent Portal.  Please be advised that TJL is going “paperless” this year.  With this, we will not be backpacking home hard copies of the report cards with our students.  If you haven’t already signed up on the Parent Portal, please contact the TJL Main Office and we will assist you with creating an account.

 With this, we are happy to share that we will be implementing a new report card format for our students.  For information regarding this new format, please click on the links below.  The first link is a pre-recorded video, with audio commentary, of our ‘Report Card Overview’ Presentation.  The second link is the ‘Report Card Overview’ Presentation Slideshow (that is presented in the video) which can be viewed at your own pace.

 As we prepare for the upcoming holidays, we want to take a moment to "give thanks" to all of our students, staff and community members for your continued support each day!


 Have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving Holiday and a Very Happy Hanukkah!


 All the best,

 Principal Williams :)
