Key Roles

2020 has taken everyone for a loop, and this has shifted many things for everyone! For the families of Jessie Duncan School, I am still here wanting to support you in whatever fashion I can. You are not alone in this time of need and change. Please reach out to me or other organizations if you need help. I am willing to connect with students over the Phone, Google Meet, Email or Text - whatever you are most comfortable with at this time. 

I have access to a tonne of resources that might be helpful for you and your family during this time. Perhaps you are looking for activities, books, articles, things to help explain what is going on, study tips for home, etc. I have them!!! Just let me know what you need, and I can help find them or point you in the direction of where to go. 

I know these are uncertain times, and things are constantly changing at this point. However; I am looking forward to seeing all our students back in the building and seeing how much they have grown. My hope is that we are supporting and encouraging each other with kindness, patience and compassion in the coming weeks and months. 

Typically, I work 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday to Friday. Please feel free to reach me on my cell 403-877-7112 or by email at csweet@cesd73.ca, if you can’t reach me at the school.
