Principal's Message

Hello Families of Betty Jane CLC,

Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

I hope you had a peaceful, joyful, and relaxing holiday break with family and friends.  The new year is a great time to talk to your children about setting goals and making resolutions.  Now is a great time to reflect on their academic progress.  Studies indicate that parental involvement can be one of the greatest determinants of how well children do in school.  Here are some great ways to help your child succeed in school and beyond.

  • Please help your child learn to be organized.When students are organized, they are much more successful in school. They can stay focused on learning instead of searching for supplies and getting sidetracked.
  • Please encourage your child to have strong study skills.Having a regular time for studying and preparing for tests at home is key to classroom success.Work with your child on home assignments and take an interest in what he/she is learning.
  • Read to your child every day and encourage him/her to read to you.
  • Send your child to school ready to learn.This means having a consistent routine at home in the morning by ensuring your child gets enough sleep at night and a healthy breakfast in the morning.
  • Please take attendance seriously – attendance matters.It’s important that your child arrives at school on time every day.Being absent and having to catch up with classwork interfere with learning.

So please, make time to talk to your child about school.  These early years of learning set the stage for your child’s growth and development as a learner.  Also, please be mindful that if you have moved or had any other changes to your contact information over the break, to let us know as soon as possible.  It is important that we are able to reach you in case of an emergency.

Once again, I wish each of you a happy new year filled with kindness and peace.

Sincerely yours,

Mrs. Schmidt

CURT- Can you please proofread for me and make any needed revisions?


Hello Betty Jane Families! It looks like we are heading into the winter season with vigor! This is just a reminder for families to use the loop if the traffic is to the end of the curb which runs along the front of the school, or if there are folks who are already waiting in line from the other direction to drop their child off. I just want to ensure that there are no traffic backups into Darrow Road which may prohibit any of our Betty Jane Family Members from entering into our lot safely. This is especially a concern as road conditions become icy and stopping distances are affected. The safety and well being of our entire Batty Jane family is our top concern.

Also, just a reminder regarding dress down days. Every Friday is school spirit-wear day. This means that students may wear Betty Jane/ Ellet apparel but they must also must wear uniform bottoms.  Spirit day Fridays are not a full dress down day because students must still wear uniform bottoms. I thank you all for working with us on a daily basis to provide our children with the very best educational opportunities. Your continual reinforcement at home on the skills students obtain at school are necessary to continue showing increased academic success.
