Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week

Principal's Update

Dear JMI Families,


Welcome to May! As we enter our third week of full-day hybrid, I would just like to thank our entire school community for helping this latest transition be a smooth one. I am proud of our remote students who have adjusted to a full-day schedule and adapted to logging on and off throughout the day for screen breaks. Our in-person students have done an incredible job following the protocols and adjusting to wearing a mask all day. The teachers and staff continue to create engaging lessons to balance the needs of all the students in a hybrid setting. Finally, thank you to our families for your endless cooperation and support.


In April, we celebrated our assistant principal, librarian, paraprofessionals, and secretaries for their valuable contributions to our school community. Our celebration continues in May as we recognize our teachers and nurse. Over the past year, our JMI teachers and nurse have gone above and beyond to support our students academically, socially, and emotionally. Students are encouraged to participate in special theme days the week of May 3 to show their appreciation for our JMI staff.



Best,

Mrs. Abatemarco
