Hello JJMS Families!
On behalf of the faculty and staff at John Jay Middle School, I’d like to wish all of you a wonderful summer break. It goes without saying but I’ll say it anyway…. It has been a long and interesting second half of the year! And I think we’re all eager to say “hello” to summer! :)
To the students - We’ve always told you that you could do anything you put your mind and heart to, and you have proven this to us all and, most importantly, yourself! Life gave you lemons, and you all made LEMONADE! Take time this summer to rest and relax, but keep your minds working! Pick up a book, read for fun; take a virtual trip, and explore new places. Make the best of your situation no matter where you are.
To the teaching and office staff – Your hard work and dedication do not go unnoticed. Your love for our students and families was evident as you made yourselves accessible at all times during our shift to distance learning. Thank you for being an integral part of this community and working so hard to stay connected to our students and their families.
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 John Jay Middle School. 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 about what the next school year will bring. Please check the summer reading list on the JJMS website under the “Library Media Center” section of the JJMS website, where you will find some terrific books to read.
Recharge your battery.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
In partnership with you,
