100 Days!

On Friday, Junior School students in celebrated 100 Days of School with some special activities. In Kindergarten, activities included counting 100 pennies and turning them into 10 dimes, which they then used to buy items from the '100 Day' store. Students also made 100 Day necklaces and played in a 100 Day activity challenge. A big thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped out with the day!
St. John’s-Ravenscourt School was founded in 1820 principally to serve the children of the Selkirk settlers. By 1834 there were forty students, evenly split between boys and girls. SJR has inevitably grown and changed over the years since, though its success throughout has been unimpeachable. We have graduated 18 Rhodes scholars, for example, and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II granted patronage and established a scholarship in her name in 1981. Today the programs are as strong as our reputation. A strong academic program is paired with an equally strong attention to the values of stewardship, ethical leadership, and excellence in all areas of academic, social and athletic life.
