Tradition of Excellence
Bruce students have helped maintain the "Tradition of Excellence" whether it be in academics, athletics, special achievements, citizenship or one of the many co-curricular and enrichment activities. The success we celebrate is the result of the teamwork and support of the staff, parents and community, and for this we thank you all!
New St. James-Assiniboia websites are coming soon!
Visit our School Blog
In an effort to improve communication between the school and home we have adopted two new tools. Instead of sending home a monthly newsletter, we will be posting all news items to a newsblog. Please click here to see what has been going on at Bruce! Also, students and staff at Bruce are using Edmodo to keep track of their assignments, communicate with teachers and hand-in assignments. Each student account also comes with an attached parent account. To access the parent account, ask your son or daughter to login to Edmodo and you will see your parent code located in the sidebar.

Student - Parent - Teacher
September 6 & 7
Beginning Wednesday, June 21st at 8:30 AM to Tuesday, September 5th 4:00 PM, an interview can be booked on line using the Bruce Middle School Conference Manager.

Please book an appointment with your child’s B.L.A.S.T. teacher only.
The ﬁrst time you use the Bruce Middle School Conference Manager you will be required to register and create a parent account, which only takes a minute or two. You can continue to use this same account for the duration of the time you have children in this school, so please record your password where you can reference it later.

Objectives for the conferences will be:
- To provide an opportunity for students and their parents to meet the B.L.A.S.T. teacher (homeroom teacher) prior to school opening to share needs of the student.
(*B.L.A.S.T. stands for “Bruce Links All Students Together”)
- To determine the best form of communication between home and school
- To enable the student to set goals for the term with parent and teacher support and encouragement
- To enable the student to:
- bring supplies to school
- receive his/her locker & lock
- verify the accuracy of registration form (from February)
- pay student fees
- tour the school
We are looking forward to this opportunity to meet with you prior to the start of the 2017-18 school year.
