Last Day of School


Welcome to James Morden Public School!

We are pleased to provide an outstanding education at James Morden School for our students. Innovative programs for our students are delivered by our dedicated and professional staff who care about your child. Our Board is focused on literacy and
numeracy achievement and creating an environment where we are working together on our goal of success for every student.

Our school provides innovative programs to address the needs of all our students, and our students participate in experiences and opportunities that encourage the development of excellence, integrity and respect.

Community Partnerships and parent involvement are crucial to a successful education for our students. We welcome your input and questions as we continually improve our school.


Ms. S. Welsh, Principal

Mrs. K. Fish, Vice Principal

We need your help!

Please consider getting trained to help James Morden run BINGO. The training is one hour long at the Gale Centre (we can arrange transportation) and allows you to volunteer at BINGO. We are required to provide 2 volunteers at 1-2 BINGO sessions per month. BINGO sessions are 3 hours long at Delta Bingo (we can arrange transportation). BINGO provides our school with approximately $500 per session and pays for field trip bus costs, presentations to students in the classroom, school uniforms, and many other things that enhance student learning. We currently only have 2 regular volunteers and NEED MORE HELP! Please inquire at the office if you are interested in helping JAM with BINGO.


Track and Field has started, and the Intermediate book club is on their way to the Forest of Reading Conference in May! As well, many students have been taking advantage of the Lego Club every day in the Learning Commons to build amazing Lego creations! Throughout this year, the Learning Commons has been transformed into a space that students are using regularly to read many of the hundreds of books we have added to our collection this year (with your hard-earned fundraising dollars). They also participate in clubs staff have been running during Nutrition Breaks (Lego, book clubs for all divisions, Go Girls, and Red Cap), as well as, a Maker Space. Maker Space is an opportunity for students of all ages to use a variety of  materials and tools to create, innovate, invent, think critically, collaborate, design, problem solve, and MAKE...ask your child what they have made, this year! In addition, JAM was fortunate to send some of our grade six students to learn to code at the Girls Technology Camp at the CONNECT Technology Conference and Junior Intramurals have been enjoyed all month by many students! As the weather improves, Yoga and Skipping Club will begin, and Flag Rugby and Badminton will continue

The school has started a DREAMBOX CHALLENGE! Students are encouraged to log on to Dreambox at home to improve their math skills in all strands of the Ontario Mathematics Curriculum. Research has shown that time on this individualized computer program is a good way for students to support their learning.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email the school for help!

Great things are happening at JAM!
