The Katonah-Lewisboro Learning Commitment
In the KLSD, we will strive to create learning experiences for all students that are engaging, relevant, and take place in an active learning environment.
If a student tests positive, it is best to reach out to your school principal or school nurse as soon as you receive the test results. If this happens during the school day, please call. If it’s at night or on a weekend, email is best. The sooner we get the information, the better.
Hello JJMS Families,
It’s hard to believe that despite our current situation and all the challenges thrown our way, the 2nd half of the year is in full swing already! We are all looking forward to warmer weather and the ability to get outside more !
Afterschool clubs are busy at work and providing chances for students to connect socially- outside of the classroom! A few highlights include:
While we have spring to look forward to, the month of March can be particularly challenging for students since the next scheduled day off is not until spring break, March 29-April 2. We are working with the teachers to provide support by reviewing classroom expectations and incorporating activities into their lessons and daily activities to keep the students engaged and interested.
Wellness Week 2021 is March 15th, and our school clinicians will be teaching the students how important it is to take care of themselves, even if they don’t think anything is wrong. Sometimes all any of us need is a good laugh with friends, a moment of meditation, or special time listening to our favorite music with friends; all of this does a body & mind some good! More about this in the coming days will be communicated to our JJMS families and students.
8th grade parents: While it’s only March, we know that you are probably wondering what the end of year Moving Up ceremony will look like. I assure you we are working with the PTO to come up with creative ways to make it a special day for our 8th grade students and will update you as we progress with our planning.
In partnership with you,
John Jay Middle School, Principal
