Principal's Message


Dear Jaguar Parents and Community,


As we embark on the 2023-2024 school year, it gives me great pleasure to extend a warm welcome back to all our returning families and extend a heartfelt greeting to those who are joining our Jaguar community for the first time. Together, we will continue to build a nurturing and inclusive environment where every student can thrive.

At Jellick, we believe in the power of education to transform lives and empower  young minds. It is our unwavering commitment to provide an excellent educational experience that fosters academic growth, character development, and social-emotional well-being. Our dedicated team of teachers and staff are passionate about creating a safe and supportive learning environment where every child feels valued and inspired to reach their full potential.

This academic year brings exciting new opportunities and initiatives that will enhance your child’s educational journey. We have implemented a range of innovative teaching strategies, updated our curriculum to align with the latest educational standards, and integrated technology into the classroom to facilitate interactive and engaging learning experiences. We will also be hosting various events and activities throughout the year to promote family involvement and strengthen the bond between our school and the community.

Communication between school and home is crucial in ensuring the success of our students, and I encourage you to maintain an open line of dialogue with your child’s teacher and our administrative team. We value your feedback, suggestions, and partnership as we work together to create a supportive learning environment that meets the unique needs of every child.

I would also like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to our incredible PTA and parent volunteers who generously contribute their time, talents, and resources to enrich our school community. Your dedication and support play a vital role in creating memorable experiences for our students and fostering a sense of belonging.

As we begin this academic year, let us remember that success is not measured solely by academic achievements but also by the growth of each student as a compassionate, responsible, and resilient individual. I am confident that with the combined efforts of our exceptional faculty, supportive families, and enthusiastic students, we will accomplish remarkable things this year.

Once again, I extend a warm welcome back to all our families. Please mark your calendars for our upcoming Jellick Jamboree on Friday, August 4th from 10:30-12:00. Our Jaguar students and families are invited to come on campus, and spend some time participating in some fun activities to catch up with and get to know one another. We look forward to seeing you there. 

If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to support you and your child in every possible way. Thank you for entrusting us with your child’s education. Together, let us make this academic year a truly remarkable one.


Warm regards,

Johan Schmitz

Principal, Jellick Elementary School
