Keeping the Crew up to Date!
Greetings New Clippers!
I hope the first part of your summer has been wonderful. I know I have enjoyed the slower pace that comes with summer, but I miss the sound of student voices that brings our building to life.
As we near the middle part of July, I wanted to take a moment to welcome you to JMB and introduce myself and a few key staff that will be able to help navigate freshman year. I also want to share a few reminders.
Please review all the information below, and please reach out if you have any questions.
I also hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!
