Dear John Jay Middle School Families,
It has been an amazing first year as the Principal here at JJMS and I wanted to thank all of you for being a part of it. Whether you offered me advice, spent time talking to me in person or on the phone, attended PTO events, or made sure that your child was ready for school every day, thank you for the role you played in making this a great year for me and for the students at JJMS.
On behalf of the faculty and staff at JJMS, I’d like to wish all of you a wonderful summer break. We hope that your days are filled with adventures, fun, relaxation and quality family time. Whether you will be staying close, enjoying a local camp or traveling the world, we wish you a fun and restful summer.
To our eighth graders, we hope you enjoyed your JJMS experience, and I wish you all the best at the high school and beyond. I know you are ready for it after your time at JJMS. Take what you have learned from your teachers, classmates and family members, and have a wonderful high school experience.
To our rising 7th and 8th graders, we are excited for what the next school year will bring. Please check the summer reading list on the JJMS website under “School Announcements” where you will find some terrific books to read. We have some great plans for continued upgrades to the school in terms of technology and flexible learning spaces for next year, and we are excited about how you will use them in September.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
In partnership with you,
