Principal's Update

JMS and JSTEM Academy School Closure Week of May 4-8

Dear Families,

I hope that you all are doing well and are healthy! We truly appreciate all the sacrifices you are making to keep your child engaged in distance learning as well as trying go to work each day or manage your job from home. It is definitely not easy navigating it all.

We only have 18 school days left; and teachers are working diligently with your children to ensure that everyone has a successful year end. Students should keep working on their assignments and check in with their teachers at the scheduled times. School is not over, and we are still with you and your child every day!!

This Week Is Teacher Appreciation May 4-8

Teachers have worked so hard all year long in a relatively traditional setting and in a matter of days on the heels of spring break had to shift gears and set up distance learning with little no to preparation. Distance learning for this length of time was not what we expected, nor prepared for; however, your child's teachers have done and still do it each and every day. They have really stepped up and changed their game plans to meet the needs of their children and also you, the parent! Please take some time this week to call, write or do something to show your appreciation for your child's teachers and their valiant efforts to not only teach from home, but also manage their own households and health during this crisis. I think that the world has learned that teaching is not an easy profession and many just want you to say thank you!
