From the Principal's Pen
January 27, 2019
New Beginnings, Continuing Commitments
I am sure that most of you have heard by now that the Board of Education has hired a new superintendent to begin on July 1, 2019. These changes can be disconcerting and it seems apparent that the large majority of our community is not in agreement with this choice. While these changes at the top can be unsettling, be assured that the most important person in your child’s education, after you, is the classroom teacher. We are fortunate to have an extremely knowledgeable, professional, and caring staff that work with your children everyday. It is my honor, with the assistance of Mrs. Brush, to continue to work with our staff and your children. We love our jobs and push hard to inspire our talented team of educators and school staff, helping them to be as effective as possible in guiding our students’ learning and growth. The teachers, staff and students of our school inspire me everyday. In the words of John King, "The job of a principal is an exercise in love.”
Come July, we will continue our good work under the guidance of our new superintendent, Dr. Toni Jones, “to educate all students to the highest levels of academic achievement; enable them to reach and expand their potential; and prepare them to become productive, responsible, ethical, creative and compassionate members of society.”

The JC Service Club is asking for your help in collecting donations for Mrs. Brush's upcoming trip to Bogotá over the February break. They have set a goal to raise $500. Service Club members will be collecting change at morning drop-off, and in the cafeteria from Tuesday, January 22nd until Thursday, February 7th. A donation jar will also be available in the front hallway. The funds will help purchase things that the children need such as clothing, diapers, toothbrushes, and medical supplies.
For more information, email Mrs. Brush at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
Mrs. Brush, Ms. Stewart, Mr. O'Brien and the JC Service Club
