Principal's Message

Dear Families, Staff and Students,

Welcome to Joseph Burr Tyrell School, home of the JBT Cubs! We are so happy you are here!

My name is Pam Walsh and I am the principal of JBT. I have been part of the community of Fort Smith for 26 years and I am so happy to be back at JBT where I started, working and learning alongside great families, staff and students. We are a family at JBT, and like any family we take care of each other. We are focused on supporting everyone who walks through our doors and we are grateful you are a part of our school community.

We are always looking for ways to bring families into our school. Whether it is as a classroom volunteer or part of our special Primary activity days, we are happy for all of the support you can offer. We are hoping to start up again a Parent Action Committee (PAC) so if you think this is something that you would be interested in, just send me a message. My email is pwalsh@ssdec.nt.ca or you can call the office and speak with me directly.

There is always lots going on at our school and we work very hard to make sure that everyone knows about what is happening. In order to find out about what we are doing, be sure to check us out in the following ways:
