Jacob Beam Hands

To our Jacob Beam parents/guardians, we are very honoured that you have chosen our school for your child(ren)’s education.We take our responsibility to students very seriously and strive to combine a climate of high academic expectations with a warm, family environment.

It is imperative that we work together to prepare our students to be critical thinkers and problem solvers. The world is changing so rapidly and information becomes obsolete very quickly. In essence, we are preparing our children for a world that doesn’t yet exist. In doing so, we must give students the skills needed to successfully navigate a changing world. Twenty-first century fluencies include a strong literacy and numeracy base, creativity and innovation, communication and collaboration, information and media literacy, flexibility and adaptability. We must also promote good character and community service and send our students out into the world to make it a better place.

Let’s work together to ensure the success of every child in our school. Parents are our partners. We hope you find this website helpful and easy to use. We welcome your feedback.

Christine Baggs
