Hello JJMS Families,
With 2020 behind us, it is with pride that we look back at what our students and staff have accomplished in four months. A special thank you to the PTO and parent volunteers for making sure the faculty and staff felt supported in every way.
Report cards were distributed through the Parent Portal on December 21. If you have any questions about your child's report card, please start by contacting that specific teacher. If you look at the overall picture of grades and are concerned, please contact your child's guidance counselor. I encourage all parents to stay connected with the school as we know that your involvement positively impacts student learning and social well-being.
We thank all of those students who have participated in our afterschool clubs, and we look forward to the students' continued participation in the winter. Our Drama Club has been hard at work rehearsing for the very first JJMS Virtual Play – Monty Python! More details about the performance date will be shared in the New Year.
Student Council elections took place on December 16. Congratulations to the students elected by their peers to represent the student body for the 2020/2021 school year!
Although this time of year can be very hectic, we are hopeful that you and your family are able to enjoy all the beautiful things that the holiday season brings. Please use this time off to reconnect with family, friends, and each other. The school will reopen on January 4, 2021.
I hope that you all have a lovely Holiday Season.
See you next year!
In partnership with you,
John Jay Middle School, Principal
