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.

Sincerely,

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.
